Pug - the Status Quo of running.  Always one more comeback   Welcome back mate.  Racing yourself fit as always?

LMH - I do like to judge a race by the quality/variety/quantity of cake/sandwich/homebaking on offer afterwards.  Nothing has come close to Strathearn Marathon where the organising club enlist the support of the local WI - 'tis a treat indeed to be served at a table almost by waitress service by aged posh grannies wearing twinsets and pearls, and proper doilies with the cakes.  If The Ritz did post-race refreshments.......

Dan - as I said, unfortunate, but the bright side is that you're still alive.  Could have been worse.

Alan - it was a new course, and very tough/hilly/twisty/hot 'n' humid.  TBH, I was pleased to beat GS from BRR, the course suited me more than for him I think.  Worth the £9 entry cos they lay on a rather splendiferous spread afterwards .  Excellent mileage and reps btw - you must have used up some brownie points to get that sort of mileage in though! 

PP  (and MsP) - very nice work, congrats!!!

16M before work today

Sounds delightful SL.


This time last week, I was covered in midges supporting a short-arsed Mohawk somewhere along WHW.  He ran a stormer.  Super-proud of him.  I won't reveal too much, but I did get to rub my hands up inside his shorts.  And he liked it


Slow trail 10k/6M race last night in 42.02, not a fast course, but beat a rival (who dipped under 36 recently) by 30secs or so, despite a school-boy error of having to stop at 2M to ....ahem..... step off the course for 30secs.  Would have been first vet otherwise, d'oh!

Just like Joolska, life is just too busy, so a quick skim back reveals wins, podiums,and the majority of the fred doing ultras - NICE (as a great man once said) on all accounts.

Particularly impressed with LMH for the obvious reasons, and AlanB (70mpw in "just coming back" mode is going some)

Looking forward to this weekend as I crew for the short-legged one with green shorts at WHW.  I'll be running anywhere from 20-30miles on the day along with filling up the pork pie belt at regular intervals.  I doubt he'll stop for a pint at this race.Mind you......

AlanB - that last leg of WHW is (in comparison to say Inversnaid) actually pretty easy.  Maybe you could come on over to the dark side one day?  Drmchapel went really well, with some excellent fun provided by the local stoners walking past the community cops.  Bet its the first time a parkrun has ever had a delayed start to a drugs arrest!!!  Challenging course, so when I say I ran 20.15, and was pleased enough, it tells you just what it was like.


PP - corking run!!!

Wardi - I think I'd be better off trying to protect the locals.

LS21 - bring your sunblock - tis roasting indeed up here!

AlanB - fwiw, parkrunning at VP with the buggy will always be a challenge regardless of how near the start you get - as you clip past on the 3rd lap at 6min/M, folk will just get in your way.  Try Springburn or Strathclyde for wider paths.  New event starting this sat at Drumchapel - definitely NOT one for the buggy.

bains - is it hot down with you too?  The fatigue could have been caused by that?

Fastest 10k in over year last night - 37.10 (chip).  Obviously no ill-effects from the marafun.  Nice even pacing, more to come if I can be bothered to train specifically for 10k.  So probably not

Been a busy last couple of weeks for me, so just read back, some cracking racing across assorted distances, well done everyone.  Also good to see some lovely recoveries happening.


Usual recovery for me after The Fling - no rest days and a 10k about 10 days afterwards (in fact a low-key 1mile time trial 2 days afterwards with a DOMs-inflicted 6.15 my result).


Rather excellent stag weekend away just there involving Windermere Marathon after a 10 hour pub/curry session the day before.  Not the easiest course at the best of times, but LS21's singing and njord's "mobile sewage works" dragged me round in a wonderfully enjoyable 3.34 (inc beer stop at 20mile).  Most fun  I've had in years!  Toot toot!!!!
