Wow, some amazing endurance efforts going on here. Al_P - fantastic that you can knock that out without too much effort (I agree, a nice area to run). CW - insane as usual. PP - a lot of quality in there with some nice pace. And the usual aerobic hours from TR.
bainspj - don't worry, by any normal standard you've done some good training!
Al_P - I did the 5-4-3-2-1 marathon once. I was well ahead, went the wrong way at one point, and then rejoined the course just as 2nd place came along. I pulled away to win but was questioned by the race director for cheating as 2nd place obviously thought I'd taken a shortcut (reasonably understandable given I came onto the course from the wrong direction). The RD believed me though!
As for me, the scabs are starting to come off, which is fun! However, my leg is probably more swollen now than a couple of days ago (more localised but larger swelling), so going to the doctor tomorrow to check it and ask what I can do about it.
TR's post made me look back and realise I'm probably not going to hit 100M this month for the first time in 2 years. And that was with 88M in the first 13 days (very high for me!).
