Alan - mtfu, and just bloody win the thing!  You'll still have adequate recovery time as long as you take a few rest days - proper rest, with no running (says he who hasn't had a rest day since November!). 

SL - glad you enjoyed NYC too - did you get my fb pm about the race?

LS21 - glad to hear you'll toe the line - go in with no expectations and just have fun.  Btw - Chester, the week after Berlin.  I wonder who I'll be staying with

Decent session last night - fartlek style 3min hard, 1min jog x 8 reps.  Hard going.  Took this morning off, with a 14/15 commute home planned later.

Which one is it you want to replace?


Running in Erskine

rodeoflip is correct - cross the bridge, and there is a canal path that in one direction you can follow to Loch Lomond, and in the other will take you all the way into Glasgow city centre, or even as far as Edinburgh if you want!  Pretty flat, good conditions underfoot, and you can't get lost (just keep the canal beside you!)

Not entirely sure but think there's a river path running alongside the golf course on the Erskine side - I live right across the river.

LMH - hahaha, guess MP during a race is what it is for all of us!

CW - Alan is but a whippersnapper - when he's our age, it'll be a different story

Alan - I'll try to sneak a look at the list later - FWIW, a steady first half with a progressive MP second half will still put you up there I reckon.  It's the stop/start at the 8!!! road crossings you'll have to watch out for - both getting knocked down (don't!), and obeying the marshal's instructions.

A slow plod this morning, nothing to see, move along please

Alan - personally I think you're playing GCM too safe.  If you're in the lead group at halfway and feeling comfortable, wouldn't you fancy winning it?  I know I would.  5@5.40s is super speedy!

LMH - what about MP at Abingdon?  Don't you fancy burning up the last 5M of the 50k?

Morning all.

Good news on the Uni CW - a good excuse for trips to see Jnr/drink beer.

LS21 - PoW sleeping arrangements!  Good news towards Berlin

LMH - as I said, previously, the 50k with some MP effort would be my choice (having never run a road/track 100k).

Wardi - sorry to hear of your loss.  19 years certainly is a lot of lives.

Mixed w/e for me - volunteered at a parkrun with intention of doing long run afterwards, but heart just wasn't in it, and binned it at 6M.  Punished myself with 20M before work this morning at 7.43s with some "hilliness".  Brings up 104M in 9 days.  Not exactly AlanB area, but I feel better for having got the LSR in.

TT - yeah, have heard of Hickey before, best getting rid of the rotten core.  Could be worse, you could have athletes trashing garage toilets, pretending to be mugged, and having your mammy all over national telly saying they'd been victimised, only for your national OC to dob you in after you'd been hauled off a plane almost on live telly.  What a bunch of fuds!

An excellent session last night (first double in a while too) - almost 11M with 10x500m off 1min recovery, averaging about 1.41 per rep.  Calves are so tight I reckon Keith Moon could play a bloody good solo on them!

TT -  "No country is immune to doping" is that the same way that no country is immune to corruption and selling on of tickets?  good training/weight loss - you'll be back at the top of your game really quick!

LMH - can you check out to see if any gpx files are available and upload to a garmin?  Means navigation not req'd, just follow the course on your wrist?  Alternatively, know the route beforehand means you can plot your own course and import onto the garmin.

Absolutely correct LS21, I should have been faster than that
