Congratulations Shades, that's another great sign that your training is going well at the moment. You seem to be reaping all the rewards. That's odd about the calf, is it a shin splints kind of pain or different? Could it be something that a sports massage might help with? Good that the pain killers helped though.
Cal - definitely take the PB whatever the Garmin says!!
Lovely pic Big G, thanks for sharing that. You're club looks really friendly and supportive. I hope your friend is OK.
Had a great night at the 'Night of the 10,000 PBs' last night at Parliament Hill track. Decided to go as it was free and only about 40 mins drive away. They had quite a few races on, but we just went for the mens and womens ones which were being used for Rio qualifiers. It was such a great atmosphere with samba dancers, lots of London Pride beer and music pumping out. We watched from lane 3 (after the first 2 laps) so you were really close to the athletes. There was a Welsh crowd next to us who were quite drunk - one of them had a sister in the women's race and they were v excited! They ended up dancing in the middle bit of the track in their onesies! Next to them were Steve Way, Martin Yelling and Tom Williams. Managed to get a picture with Dave Bedford who was there, he gave out the medals at the end, including trophies to some of the London Marathon winners.
