MikeS - welcome and well done at Berlin. That has to be a pretty good age-grading - I'm guessing over 90%?!
Al_P - that is massive training, you must go well once you've tapered.
TT - similarly, very impressive training. And that sounds like a very good result in the HM given the course and training earlier in the week.
Gobi - I did laugh slightly at the AG win I'm afraid! Your swimming must have improved a bit, or you've just become even more of a beast on the bike. Obviously not running too badly either with that HM time.
DrDave - sounds like a decent 10k considering. You're in need of a nice easy taper, then you'll be ready to go!
CW - solid 10k and well done on the prize.
TR - that sounds like a fairly tough session but might try it one Wednesday evening. I do 2 or 3 x 20 mins occasionally and it is tough to keep pushing hard, but supposedly is one of the best sessions to do.
Some nice training by lots of others too (TJB, Jools, ThR and probably lots of others).
Wasn't out too late on Friday, but had quite a few beers so wasn't feeling top-notch for Saturday's run. Did 2 hours with the usual crowd though - no idea on distance but I doubt it was more than 15M (almost all off-road though).
Really nice ride yesterday - 80M in 4 hours on a slightly flatter route than our usual rides. Only issue was that I clearly didn't wear enough clothing and was really cold for the first 30 mins. Perfect by the end though!
