My #asics262 journey to Paris: Sub-3:30 Malcolm

Another PB! Nice one Malcs.

Oh! PR specific eh? That would explain at least one anomaly.

Nice bit of Aqa Jogging for me this morning, then a full day of teaching 11 year olds about the perils of the internet, followed by a junior cadets session with traffic cops.

Have been emitting hooty sneezes all day to progress yesterday's infernal sore throat.

This is the maranoia right?

Fabulous efforts from both of you weekend warriors.

It was hot today, I felt hot and cold as i set off but was soon glad of the no jacket decision. It was fab to be on a run with just a single bottle of water for the 10.

Was supposed to do 2 x easy, 3 @ 8:50, 3 @ 8:40, 1 @ 8:20, 1 x easy, and managed 7/10, none too easy, and the post tib is now enjoying a strip of Chinese plaster whether placebo or not.

Wish I wasn't going away nextx weekend, it's all too hectic, especially as I have tribals arriving from New York the day after the York marathon. Timing.

Sarah hi! I can't believe you were doing 100m sprints the day after not bothering to win your ultra! Fantastic running for the terrain, wow.

I've only ever done London, but the 4 hour pacer has a massive entourage who stick like glue. Don't stop for the loo unless you want mayhem!

My sister & most of her mates are targetting 4 hours, although sis is expecting me to pace her. I shall point her in your direction at the start also in case we get separated for any reason, including if I might not be right on the day.

Speaking of right, I did get what thesystem is calling a PB @ ParkRun this morning, 24:26, although I've done 24:07 at Hackney, and today was over the line a good few seconds before they're giving me.

Still I am happy with that as I didn't floor it at all, good effort yes, but nothing more.

Tendon has flare a little so it has had an epsom bath and been slathered in magnesium oil. Those Chinese plasters will be out next.

Comrades is one of my goals, not sure I'm there yet though.

Malcs I heard the weather shall remain splendid until November, or until October 13th at least!

No reason for you to be jinxed now, just stay away from lurgies. Food sounds fab.

Mr P nice 10K midweek, hope Sands goes well, and Rachel you'll enjoy it, well I likd the last little bit in the park.

I too shall endeavour ParkRun this morning, and have the 10 progression tomorrow.

The tendon was improved on Thursday's easy, seemed fine yesterday [just bike], of course it's suggesting otherwise today but did do load of lunges etc yesterday too at MAT.

i'm away this coming weekend at a conference, not ideal, so will need to plan and cook this weekend.

Rachel whoop whoop - nice one!

I used to work rotating shifts, still do, but only up to lates, no nights.

I had a fab massage yesterday, and am off out for an easy 4 before work.

Tendon is less sore, knee too I think. It looks like I may have been inverting my foot unduly in my efforts to do the AIM exercises.

It's all a bit frustrating as I was looking for solutions to the more global picture, but the immediate priority is of course getting to the start at York.

Hi Sean, good to see you - I'm so sorry about the sudden unexplained loss of your friend, hits you hard.

Malcs thanks for asking - I must say things were feeling generally more mobile earlier in the day [managed both bike and pool], not a hint of DOMs from Saturday's run either, which is always encouraging, but it seems to have stiffened this evening.

I've had a rough day, culminating in two bottles of cherry active somehow leaking into my 2012 rucksack whilst remaining sealed. So when they ask you if you want a bag, maybe they know something we don't.

I have a 10 progression run through MP this weekend, then an easy 7 one week out.

Awesome Rachel! You will.

Sounds good Rachel.

Malcs it's so true about race conditions. It has been so much harder training for an October marathon than for London, when every weekend has several halfs & there are many 20s, so actually the long runs are more impressive, yet.

My tendon is still sore, off to the pool followed by sauna this morning.

Can't wait to hear from Sarah.

Well I did my usual long very slow one 3 weeks+1 day out, 25.24 @ average 10:28, would have been very fun and dead easy were it not for the lack of delight in my eft knee, which in itself faded into insignificance once my right post tib began to protest and rage.

I may have been twisting and turning more than usual given the aftermath of the storm [interestingly there were a couple of mini landslides from the landscaping at the edge of Olympic Park onto the towpath which guys were aready shovelling furiously at 9am]

Or the AIM exercises could have caused what is a whole new injury. Odd if so because I was OK on much faster efforts on Thursday.

Now watching final score with a water bottle on my knee and one on my right ankle to which a Chinese medicinal plaster has already been applied.

All advice welcome.

Taper mania has indeed begun.
