On my run this morning I was thinking that, Dachs. All that marathon mileage had to end up somewhere. My gut feeling is that if the London Marathon was now just a week away, you would smash it.

I could do 15:30 no problem. For two and a half miles that is.

12 miles for me today. Same route as a month back. Felt easier, was faster and I didn't feel tired this time. Av pace 7:11. 

Worked out hydration from a base weight of 127.5lb's. Weight on return 127.2lb's.

From diary 1989, 12 miles av 7:30m/ml. Dropped 5lb's in weight, feel ill.

What treatments were on offer when the NHS started?

Well done Dachs. 15:42, crikey that's quick.

I was trying to work out the mile pace and came up with something nearly starting with a '4'. 

Must be a good feeling, sprinting for over three miles.

IC, I'll start out at 10 minute plus pace so as to give my circulation a chance to get going. 

The ironic thing about this hydration business is that even during the heat of the summer, drinking enough is a bit of a chore, easy to forget. 

The most impressive bit of non drinking I've ever witnessed was a runner who just before an evening (summer) track session, declared he'd only drunk one cup of tea since he'd woken up.

I'll tell my cousin 'Rose' that she is now my brother.

The old transmitter was one made from tubular steel and was held up with wires. Didn't like getting coated in ice, so fell down.

Must have been going well yesterday. I ran at an easy effort from the hotel up to the mast. Just over 2 miles with 510 feet of climbing. Just under 9 minute mile pace.

Only 4 miles easy this morning, which makes three easy days back to back.

Easy for me is wu/wd effort. 9 minute mile pace.

Its the days I do the sessions when the boot goes in.

Apart from one warning nip I've never had a problem with dogs.

I once ran through a pack out being walked by their many owners, with an attitude of, 'couldn't care less if they bite me or not'.  Such blatant indifference caused such confusion that instead of biting me, they decided to bite each other.

Sure is Bus. I spent the summer of 1970 playing under and around that. 

Went there to drop off my mothers ashes.

She wanted to go home.

Every set of exams I took ended in failure, 'O' levels (3) 'A' levels (zero of course) never finished a course due to the inevitable failure, BTEC (3 years out of 5) Apprenticeship 3 years out of four and Degree, failed after two years.

Just as well I did.
