25-30 years ago was a different age Phil. That was the days 31mins for 10k would only get you 475th out of 500 in the Cock N Biscuits village 10k.
This is closer to the reality than you would imagine.
72 miles does sound a lot. But if one notes that at this time of year I'm effectively a full time runner, it doesn't really count. Knock 40 miles off would make it civilised within a normal working week.
Still, it's taken close to 40 years to get to this position so I'm not too hung up about it. I still have to master the mud and dogs.
