Amazing stats arent they Phil - reminders of what sort of times the 'greats' used to do. Is that the Martin Yelling podcast? Saw him ,lizzie, and the rest of the Bedford gang at the weekend for Alec Stanton's 80th birthday party, great to see Paula there too, nice to meet her at last!!

Nice tri Andrew, sounds 'bracing!' Dachs - I'll have a look at the ridiculous schedule for the summer regards the 3k.

8 x 800 last night on the grass. Warm and breezy, but grass had been cut! started on 2.32,29,29,26,25,27,24,24. Did a 2 lap warm down with no drink so had a wobbly walk up to the bar after for an emergency bitter shandy & crisps. Serious athlete eh  Had dodgy guts on Weds, so that probably didn't help..

Yep sounds nice SS. Although inside the pub is probably a better option currently! Good effort with the 600's

Cracking efforst at Staines Ric.

Great 800 report Dachs - it is a bit of a lottery at the moment with the weather, I did 20 x 30 secs yesterday down the canal, after taking a couple of hail and heavy rain breaks

Been called up for BAL again - 5000m this time at Southampton June 6th...argghh!

Actually, why are there men's and women's trainers? Apart from the stupid colour difference, do women's ones have to be different in any other way?

The whole thing is ridiculous - just like the pink and purple colours for womens trainers. Get endless earache off the missus about that....

..when I allow her to speak, obvs.

Damn me for not posting since Thursday! Too much to take in all at once great stuff from SS- liked the shrieking like a girl, good stuff. Great racing from Phil, Bus, Matt and I must have missed someone. Dean, soooo frustrating getting stuck in traffic, my worst was missing Supergrass at the Blur Ally Pally gig in 94!

So, weather still shite, when will the fan get turned off? So facking annoying, had the Beds track champs yesterday so decided to do the 5000m as it doubled up as the EVAC champs too. Became apparent that it was going to be a time trial with a windy back straight. Decided on 77's to get about 16 mins, which started to slip a bit halfway. So gave myself a kick up the backside and ended up with 15.56. Contented with that, now a bog standard week with the BUPA 10k on Monday.

Some reps in regents pk tomorrow lunchtime, bit of shower dodging by the looks.

Steven Gerrard........LEGEND

Just hyped up too much, thats all.

Ha ha. Yes careful Dachs!!

What a lovely night to do 8 x 800 around the field in a wet Luton..and bloody cold! it was up 2/3 of the field and back down the other side, so the even reps are faster than the odd ones. think they were about 2.31-2.28 for the odds and 2.28 - 2.24 for the evens.

Everyone found it tough and very breathy in the hard to get going..

Iron - got an email with unofficial 15.40! All us LBAC'ers have their time 2/3 secs slower than they got on their watches..hey ho I suppose, but a bit annoying.

Love all those beer gardens in Munich - went there on a stag do 5/6 years ago, luckily over the Euro 2008 semi final weekend, toured them all.

Enjoy the 800 Dachs. I probably won't do one this year though. Young man's game

Cheers Dachs - Fingers crossed I can keep it going, but I'm not always one of those runners who improves through a season. Like with the cross country season, I can start well and tail off a bit, usually a bit up and down!

Track 5,000m on Sunday at the Beds Champs and then the Bupa 10k the following Monday - the 10k PB is 32.38 so I might try and have a pop at that in London.

I'm sure your season will jump into life soon! Still waiting for the results from Tuesday - knew I should have asked at the time!
