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!!!!

Will read back when I can, a fair bit of time needed methinks.

Yesterday's race was going rather well until about 37miles (on course for a big pb, and a potential sub9) until a bit of a tumble along the lochside (very technical section) which caused increasing cramps and spasms for the next 18miles or so. Ran out fluid too, which didn't really help. I wasn't giving up though, so MTFU'd and kept moving forward. The last 3 miles in particular were very unpleasant and pretty certain that I experienced the "ultra shuffle"!! Sub10 with a 9.55 and 30mins faster than 2 years ago. Perfect conditions and an incredibly stacked field with both m & w course records tumbling.
Those of a nervous disposition should look away now....

cakesy - room for improvement if you ask me

Wardi - 4 drop bag points, so plenty of picnic opportunity.  More importantly, there are also 4 pubs on the route


Been browsing, and came across the media whore.  Again.

Just terribly disappointed that NOBODY has reported in with reports of sales of their medal on ebay.  Money for old rope this marafun malarkey


Only because the auction doesn't end till Friday lunchtime.  



Good man, can you beat my £109 from a couple of years back?

Great race reports, delighted that most folk seem have to got what they wanted or expected.

Goth - sorry to hear your news, remember the good times.

DanA - I have HB's ear, should I text him on your behalf?  Only an hour to pack up?  What's your exit slot time?  I remember leaving one year at nearly 11pm, back to the hotel for half a sandwich, an apple, and a bag of crisps, and thinking CNBA for the Sunday.  Had no breaky, but changed my mind upon arrival at Blackheath, and scavenged some jelly babies and jaffas about 8.30am from some thread folk in the pen.  Still managed a 3.01.  And you have a personal masseuse?  MTFU


TT - the thought of that berlin pic is already giving me nightmares!

Dachs - first on the thread to have seen it in person.  He's been parading it all over facebookland.  And yes, very silly.  Very very silly!

Joolska - how much!?!?  how fast !?!? 

ES - since we're having some thread throwbacks - consistent consistency. 

Last night's new parkrun recce (scheduled to start June, offered to run the course to offer advice) turned into a hill reps session - if anyone runs sub18 on that course, they will win/be first finisher.
