CW - Great video of what looks like a stunner of a course. Well run as well.

Muss - Sub 17 highly probable on Weds

Matt 3 - Sounds like a great run off the back of some big races.

CC2 - Nice first place.

Been bimbling along with normal marathon training. Did 4x2m (11:40, 11:38, 11:30, 11:26) on Friday which was pleasing. 21m @ 7:00 straight after a night shift today which was tough. Another night shift tonight followed by a nice rest day tomorrow.
My transfer to Exmouth Harriers is now complete and have a nice new blue vest to run in

Sub 2:40 - Am training for 6:03/mile which is around 2:38:45 to give me a bit of wiggle room.
I'm deliberately not doing many races (just one HM in Sept in Bristol) and doing big sessions alone to help prepare for what is likely to be a solo run.
What's the target for Berlin?

Tipptop - That sounds horrible but at least you've learned some lessons!

Muss - Very solid weekend of running there.

CC - Nice medal

10+6 double yesterday with some strides - first proper running since the training marathon on Weds. Feeling generally good but legs are enjoying a deserved day off today.

I know that Philpub and Muss are bound for Berlin this Autumn and I'm doing a little one in Mablethorpe.
What are people entered into this season?

Padams - Very impressive 10/50k efforts close together.

Philpub - Sounds like a high quality 5000m and a perfect opportunity to go sub 16.

Did my 26.2 solo training run today and it went well. Was looking for MP + 45s (6:48) and the first 10 miles were 6:42 avg but felt very relaxed and gently accelerated from there to a 2:53 finish. A couple of mins faster than planned but still felt very much in control at the end. Tired now and looking forward to 4/5 easy days

PP - There will be a full carb load (kind of dress rehearsal), a mini taper and a few days recovery. It's a serious run for me and needs to be treated as such

I've done something similar the last three training cycles and it seems to work well. Also gives me a chance to practice with taking gels as I'm not great at it.

Muss - If you can find an event to do the full 26.2 it makes it much easier with the drink stations etc. You also get the magical 5 secs/mile boost from pinning a number on! Unfortunately, there was nothing nearby that fitted in with my shift pattern so will be doing mine solo this time.

Been lurking for a while and keeping up with some very fast track stuff particularly from Padams and Dachs.

Also PP blasting out some impressive sessions so early.

Nice to see Al_P getting back to it and diving under an hour for 10m.

Delighted to read that CW is hopping and bounding to greatness

Awesome mileage and quality from Muss.

My Mablethorpe training has been bubbling along nicely - quite difficult to compare to previous campaigns due to the heat/humidity but hope I'm on track to sub 2:40
Got a full 26.2 at MP + 45secs planned for next week so hopefully that should give me an idea of where I am.

Hello, Anyone doing this race this year? I'm entered and chasing sub 2:40 after missing out on London due to injury and am already looking forward to this

Hello hello,

Good luck to Jools and TJB for tomorrow.

Have been quietly building up mileage and, fingers crossed, my knee woes appear to be gone. Averaged over 60 miles for the last 3 weeks including a hillyish local 10k in 36:13 which was pleasing. A month or so more of base building and then a 14 week build up to a marathon in Mablethorpe. Tis a small affair but pancake flat so hopefully conditions will be kind and I can get the sub 2:40 that I felt was on the cards at London before injury and illness struck.
