I used a colander to view the eclipse earlier.

I think I strained my eyes


Been lurking and following all the great efforts of late. Will be starting out the Champs for the first time this year and occuping my usual spot outside the Lion Rouge asap after.


I expect a target time list to start soon ?

Massive congrats PP !!!
I ran exactly to plan for my 2:40 target. Halfway at 1:19:56. Cruised through 30 and 35k staying on the pace until 37/38k when a massive stitch hit me out of the blue. Could hardly freaking breathe and was forced to walk and jog home. Finished 2:48. So close yet so far.

I have actually driven myself around most of the course, using google maps.

Looks good and so much wider than London !

I'm typing on a solid wood desk here, so I hope that should allow me to mention the WEATHER.

Looking about as perfect as one could wish for.

Chance of rain 0%

Wind:SSW at 6 mph

Temp somewhere around 10degrees at 9am - 17degrees my midday.

Laminated up the paceband,so its 2:40 or bust for me.

Just passed the 2,000 miles mark year to date, nice confidence booster there if ever I needed it !

Bit concern about the cup / drink situation tbh, I just cannot drink from cups.

Toro, you should be good for 2:45. I have a similar 10k and broke 2:45 at London.


Tapering now. I hate taper.

PP, I think I have the same throat issues as you, I currently sound like Vito Corleone when speaking.

Dece mileage last week 84 miles with some speedwork and hills chucked in for good measure.

10 weeks to Berlin, i'm going all out for the 2:40 as I have my champs spot so I can risk this one a bit.

Anyone have an tips on the starting gates there? Have been suffering mightmares of being stuck in the middle of the masses behind a donkey....

The DOMS have cleared and currently ensuring I consume enough 'whatever I want' food at the moment, until I pick up the training for Berlin (Although my attempt to not run at all last week cumilated in 23 miles).

Plan now is to just tick over for a few weeks, then hit an 18 week Pfitz schedule and target 2:40.

Looking forward to a bit of warm weather training this time around !
