Good stuff CC82 - Any time you are going for in particular? Good 10K from Pete and a trip to Parkrun Mecca for Cortina...

Decent weekend here - knackering 16 x 400 on the grass at Luton sat lunchtime..why does Sat lunchtime always feel the hardest time of the week to train?? Managed to keep about half at 70-72 in the windy ones and got the rest 68-69 (we went round the field doing 3 different sections). Club dinner sat night and hangover Sunday so didn't run. Ran to watch the MK marathon from home yesterday (about 13 miles)..found it hard and really warm.

Amazed to see the stuff some people wear on marathons - saw jackets, leggings, the lot. Unreal

Hmm Scott, you are being very positive and I suppose physically inside it has all healed up. I'm sure the pain will go eventually. Nice steady 10k there.

Bus - Pompey is ok, lived there for a year and know some mates down there, good pub crawl down Albert rd!

Good session SG, continual improvement! My distance stuff is done and dusted. Realised after Cardiff that it was ridiculous battering my legs over a half. 10 miles race max from now on!

Was the Samir stuff on this thread? Or just in Training? I didn't see the whole saga, but it was quite amusing - the plates and everything.

So breezy Luton track last night - 4 sets of (600/400/300/200) - 2 mins between sets and 1 min between reps. Ugh it was a bugger, went round the windy top bend on every rep apart from the 200. Warm up wasn't great, so first 600 was awful. I think they went (1.48/68/51/33), (1.44/67/50/32), (1.43/67/50/32), (1.43/68/49/32). Quite happy with that due to the conditions. Steady commuting run today, got the new Glide Boost on, so much better than the response cushion..

Really need pen pics so I could have shouted at everyone. Knew it would be good running as it was bloody freezing supporting!

First time in the Red Lion at about 2.30pm, quite surprised how easy it was to get served! (important stuff, obvs..)

Enjoyed reading all the reports - it really is a great day out. Only ran it once in 2004, but been supporting and drinking on every one since.

Never happen in any other city - well that's what the Evening standard would like the public to believe.

Great report Reg...sounded good fun too in parts!

I guy I know from MK Redway did 2.32 with both halfs 1.16. It's what you should do in a marathon I feel, as it's not really a race for us mere's spreading an effort out over the distance.

Nice and crisp today - had the leggings on again..surely for the last time this winter? Will do some short stuff, minute efforts or something similar later. Brought the flats to work..

**clobber alert - Start Fitness are doing half price Boost again if anyone interested - just picked up some Glide Boost for £52 down from £104.

Great stuff Dachs, join me in the never again, keeping to shorter stuff gang! Good stuff from AG, Phil, reg and bus. Oh tall Elsa was Sean from my club...did 2.39 and a world record!

Watched at mile 6, then walked under the foot tunnel and walked up to near Canary Wharf. Bloody cold, but pub was warm after! Was in Red Lion about 2.30 for a quick loosener first, then to the LBAC haunt and the HHH haunt. 7 pints and a kebab on the way home. Love marathon day! (Planned day off today!!)

Mine are definitely a blob. If I stop or slow down it just fades away, like in the morning, or it goes with a bit of flapjack if I need a bit after a cross country. I remember doing a XC then going straight into a 30 min warm down, I was a bit all over the place getting my tea and flapjack, just ran out of energy!

Orange/red all the same. I'm not studying you that closely. What does Ken think about the colour coordination tho?

Yeah I've seen them CD. Many a time. Think he keeps them on all the time, or his special powers will wane

Talkback: How to avoid stomach problems on the run

Got rid of dairy before the race first - helped a little bit, but cutting out wheat has really helped. Stomach fine EVEN after cross country...
