Well done to all those who braved the mud at Parliament Hill. Quite pleased I had to miss that!
Toro - great run, parrticularly with the wind. Sounds like you're in great form.
CC2 - sorry to hear that. Hope it sorts itself out quickly.
Steve6 - well done, sounds like you judged that really well.
CW - crazy run as usual!
Dan - I suspect a rest day will have done you some good given the miles you've been putting in.
selbs - hope the littl'un's feeling better. Good that it coincided with a "rest" weekend!
Nice pacing by Wardi (I initially thought that was a HM and we thinking that was a good pace for you, let alone your pacee!) and PP.
10M very easy on Saturday and then about 21M yesterday including the 17M Gade Valley training run. Got round the 17M in 1:48, which comprised 9M in about 59 mins (6:3x pace), then 8M in about 49 mins (6:0x pace). First half was net uphill and second half net downhill, but it felt reasonably comforable other than the one main hill on the way back where we pushed the pace a bit and split the pack up.
83M for the week, again, my biggest since 2009 (and close to my biggest ever), but cutting back this week a bit for the HM on Sunday.
