Rachel I was wondering how you were doing, it looked like a great event.

Very well done.

Got to do some hill training for next year!

Saw myself finish on tele this morning, what a blast.

TV alert!

Channel 4 coverage of the York marathon features Malcs @ 48 mins, look out for another brief glimpse at the line too as they were following Rob Deering, then I pop up at 57 mins, just before the credits roll, and am surrounded by runnery looking blokes, no caterpillars, nobody throwing up.

They kept saying how flat the course was though!

Did ParkRun gently yesterday, at exactly MP, just bike today as tribals were packing up to leave and thought it might be rude to disappear.

Had aggravated my left hip slightly doing the latest remedial exercises, nothing major, it wore off after the first 45 mins on the bike.


Hope everyone is out enjoying today.

I watched Steve Way bimbling round Birmingham earlier, so thoughts turned to the indoors season coming up, all the great meets from Sheffield onwards.

Sheffield is 10 weeks out from VMLM if anyone fancies joining me.

Malcs did you find your vid yet or do you need assistance?

Mine was with the email they sent me of my photos, but If you follow the link on the event thread you can just put your name or race number in.

Malcs that was one rivetting report, what an epic.

I really felt for you as you described the days before.

I had a look at my splits yesterday and they do reflect the elevation despite my not really feeling it at the time.

I had 5 miles 15-17, 20 & 23, where I edged over 9 min milling but a mega fast finish too - when he said 500m to go I only had 2 mins to get a PB and did, so that is up there on a par with my 800m PB at the end of VLM 2013.

My overall pace was 14 secs/mile slower than at London each of the past two years, saved by only running 26.28 at York. So I really need to work on pace,and on lurgy dodging.

Loving the finish line video, and actually my photos look quite runnery.

Chri5B & Catcat you both had storming runs!

I thought the hill at 8.6 was nasty as well, but the rest of teh course totally fine, even the out and backs didn't really drag.

Elevationwise I mean.

Thanks Malcs.

I'll be back.

Awesome you two!

I'd already had a sneaky peek last night & am over the moon for those amazing achievements!

Off to the spa with sis before catching my train if it's running [they say maybe not on the news but Trainline is a yes!]

I have another sister arriving from New York for a week this afternoon, no work til Thursday whoop whoop and the Yorkshire gang are down for the weekend.

Legs not too bad!
