I've usually been a Nike stalwart but having more success with Asics at the moment.

Good to see so much productive training in action.  It's a few pages since I last posted but everyone seems to have got faster and is training smarter!

London 2013 was my last running race and have had a few injury issues since then.  I still have a place for London 2016 and seem to have accidently come back to form.  So 272 miles in January and an 18 mile long run banked.  Need to start giving some serious thought to a London 2016 campaign

Inspired by Poacher's Comrades efforts - very impresive off minimal training.  And a great report.  There is an almost hypnotic pull from Comrades - so despite thinking that a marathon is the furthest distance any sensible person should run - I'm begiining to feel the attraction ...

Sorry to hear it all fell apart on the day Gul but a sensible decision to drop out early.  Keep the faith - your day will come.

Trying to get back in shape here.  Best not to mention the weekly mileage other than that I'm ahead of Keir!  A few niggles to contend with (not sure where the hip flexor strain came from ...) and spending far too much time for my sanity on the dreadmill but I'm hoping to toe the VLM line in 2015 ...

SBD, not seen you here for a while, how are things ticking along?

A few calf problems post VLM13 killed the enthusiasm a little and then I let work & life get in the way of any training.  Before I realised it, 6 months had passed and the fitness had slipped a little (OK, dissapeared) ...

I've been inspired by the achievements of all the threadsters in London and the other Spring marathons - everone just keeps getting better!  Commiserations to those, including yourself, for which it didn't quite work out on on the day.

One of my clients died unexpectedly a few weeks back.  This made me realise that you have to find time in life to do the things you enjoy.  And I really would like to run a Sub 3 at London (a potential V50 80% WAVA!) so time to start the training for VLM15 ...


Do you train in km or mile pace?

Definately in Km here - you get more for your money

Yikes-a-Lordy.  22 painful minutes for a bloody 5k.
Looking good for sub 4 at Abingdon then...

We'll be expecting a Sub 3 then TAR

Of course, more importantly than the technical specs, the 310XT is a very nice shade of orange - so goes well with the red shoes

Very nice mile reps DA - I can only dream of doing such a session!

Excellent racing over the weekend.

KR - Great even pacing running and well deserved PB.  So you don't feel you were holding anything back?

Bike-It - Sounds like far too much fun but looking in great shape for Comrades.

Ant - Nicely rescued in tough conditions.  And enough energy at the end to argue with the officials.  Hopefully no problem with the GFA application.

Blisters - Just think what you could achieve if you did some training

I was getting worried the GFA goalposts were going to move and deny me my London 2014 place but looks like I get an extra 5 minutes cushion as well.

Another 5 miles recovery tonight - still chewing over the plan for the Summer but beginning to think some short distance racing might be in order ...

Good luck to the weekend racers - Ant, KR and Bike-It.  Don't be tempted to go off too fast ...

Looking good for Sub 40 Gul.

Welcome to the new folk.

Sounds like you have been having a very tough time MsE - it's easy to forget how lucky we are just to be able to run regularly.

Quite impressed with the official London Photos but not sure I want to part with all that money

Looking good Gul - what's your 10K PB?

I find it difficult to consume more than 60g of porridge ...

Sounds like good weather Ant!

Excellent reports from Lorenzo, Men and Badbark.

Managed a mile 4 recovery run last night.  Quads still a bit mashed but otherwise not too bad.  Don't have a plan for the next few months at the moment so will need to do some thinking over the weekend.
