Good stuff SG - getting there then!!

Bus - I have done the Tring ridgeway run a few times - hilly but only 9 miles I think. very nice race.

God some deep stuff on here. Interesting mind.

SG - 'Precious Runners'  I've got another term for them, but I won't share it with everyone

Been running and in a club for so long now, it's just a way of life - and I agree with Matt, there's always a teeny bit of vanity there - wanting to look slim and feel healthy. Also ego, who doesn't want to try and get one over your rival, or have the best time?

The social side is massive too. Not seen some of the Herne Hillers for a while, so will be good to sit down with a pint (or 2!) after the Surrey league tomorrow at Wimbledon Common.

Yeah - good session, but god was I running to the station like John Wayne this morning. Think  I need to get the missus to finally give me a massage at some point!

Good chucklesome stuff on here tonight..more tales of Berkshire types of whom I have no idea who they are!

So the second wettest Luton session tonight in 8 years, 3 weeks after the wettest ever one. Bastard weather. Anyway, 4 x 2k and I thought id take it 75% like I did a week before Berlin..

So it was 6.40 (that was the really torrential rain), then a 6.25. Had to have a poo stop, so I tagged along for the 2nd 1k of the 3rd rep, then did the last one in 6.18. Felt pretty good, but we were on the paths and my crappy old racers didn't give me much support...hence the quads were singing a bit at the end. Contented with that though.

Ditto. A few niggles are nothing compared to the other stuff you've been battling!

On the right I presume Bussy

Shame about the half AG - onwards and upwards though. I used to call them a 'Professor Pie Head' race...'A partial success' being the mantra (as in at least I finished it )

Love reading all the reports, and in the eating club too...never have I felt so relaxed and happy going to National road relays - knowing that I wasn't running it!

Please though, put the name of the race on the report  . Some impressively scientific pacing methods. It was bad enough trying to work out 19 min 5k's in Berlin!!

ugh! Not nice!

Matt - you should train with us at Luton for a bit to get used to planes screaming over your head when training. Handily we landed from Berlin on Tuesday afternoon at 5.45 so I could see all the cones laid out for the session

As for game shows - I wonder if Roger Mellie ever got to host 'Celebrity Bumhole'? (sorry i'm a Viz / Vic n Bob era man..)

Dachs - it's good to be cautious, but with your Half time there's no reason not to reach well into 'sub 2.35 land'. My PB is 73.45 and sneaked into the 2.30's, so you should be fine..

Saying that, I ought to be sub 73 really..
