Angela - 5 marathons in one year? You must be superhuman or mad? I managed 3 in a 52 week period once but that was only due to the timing of the last one being a week earlier than it had the year previous..... Good luck for Sunday

Parkrun time down to 20:16 this morning so that is nearly a minute off since last month and my fastest at Bolton since June. Only 3 weeks tomorrow until Chester and the metric marathon. Looking forward to racing further that a half but glad it is not the full 26.2

Reiki - I always get a bit nervous when the packs arrive as it means it isn't too far off from happening....

Not long until the ballot places for London are sent out.......

Momento - haven't seen that film Malcs is it any good? But saying that I could have sent it and just not remembered! Life is so confusing sometimes...

Anyway completed my 10k in 41:07 I think which was ok. Wasn't expecting a PB as did the parkrun the day before and followed the Angela alcohol carb load plan.... I'll see how I get in Accrington at the end of October. Well done Angela on your 10k and great race report too - you should see the difference in my mile splits.

Feral Bob how many marathons do you do a year? Well done on your latest and it must make up for your Cheddar disappointment?

I didn't run this evening due to using the excuse of the M62 holding me up on the way home. Usual I try to tell myself that if I can run tired I can run in anything but my brain wasn't falling for that one today....

Hope everyone else is keeping up with their plans for the week?

Hey been away a while but good to see some good stuff happening. Seems everyone is readying themselves for their autumn challenges!

Well done Hans on your triathlon. I've yet to make the leap mainly due to bike worries as my bike may as well have a basket on the front. Well done on your time and imagine what you'll be able to do next time! Will you go the full or stay at the half?

Malcs with your times your marathon at York should be easily under 3:15... Your training seems to have gone so well so far are your running times this year have been phenomenal. I think you'll really surprise yourself! Same for anyone else doing York.

Got a surprise race number in the post on Thursday for the Salford 10K. I can't even remember entering it! Good job I've got nothing on tomorrow! Can't believe that I don't remember filling in the form! Worried I might be losing my mind. Anyway shall see how I get on. Not expecting anything special as already have 30+ miles in the legs already this week.

Glad to hear you're on the mend Rachel and back doing the Parkruns. Such a great way to track improvements.

Good luck for your taper Sarah - let the madness commence.

Rubbish to hear of your cold Mr P but hope Mrs P does well tomorrow. Could she be the millionth finisher?

Great to see the return of DS2. How have you been?

Hope everyone has a great weekend of running. Bit wet here but always nice to run in...

Hey! So the summer holidays have really helped my training. Up to 33 miles last week so the Chester Metric should be ok! Feel like a part timer looking at the list above seeing as Mr P and McHilly are doing the full.

Went out on Sunday and decided to run without my iPod. Not sure if this made it more difficult but I struggled to break 8m/m. Was such hard work.... Does music really make such a difference?

Tried a new parkrun on Saturday at Heaton park and I am going to probably alternate between that and Bolton as there both great challenging courses. 16th overall but still having difficult breaking 21 mins at the moment. This weekend I am sure I can break it....

Hope your injury is doing better Reiki. It sounds awful. I hate cramp. Hope you're back to full fitness soon.

Went out with my club tonight. Session was led by a guy who used to be in the army. He loves hills and it nearly killed me. I felt like the dead sheep we ran passed at one point....

Hope everyone is enjoying their running/holidays at the moment?

Blimey that all sounds rather medical Reiki. Hope you're back feeling normal soon!

Fantastic race report Sarah. It can't have been fun running in those conditions and I really like the way you mention all the things you wish you could have been doing instead like relaxing and drinking or jumping in the sea. Sometimes the only way I can get around a run is by thinking about what I'll eat once I finished

Talking of eating, Malcs do you still follow some of the ideas given to you by Ruth in your Asics 26.2 adventure? Only asking as somehow post London I've nearly put on a stone! Quite possibly my habit of putting chocolate milk on my cereal hasn't helped and may also explain the slower times of late!!!

Went to a race entering bonanza last night and have put myself into the following races

Chester metric marathon (26.2km/16.3 miles) on 5th October - maybe see you before or after this one Mr P?
Accrington 10k 26th October
Lancaster half marathon on 2nd November
Manchester marathon on 19th April

Wow. Great race report Malcs. Good running as well. Don't think it is something I could do, running 70km over 24 hours. Well done.

Currently on my school hols so hoping to use it to improve my running. A very steep hill session last night and 6x 1000m in the park this morning. Hoping to regain some form after my personal worst at the Bolton park run two weeks back....

Went to see some of the athletics at the Commonwealth Games on Monday. Was really good. It's great how the mix the disability sport with the others too.

Might enter some races later too. Did fancy Chester Mr P but think it could be too soon. Might do the metric marathon they're offering though.

Just want to wish those who are doing the TR24 this weekend. You are all nutters. Nearly as mad as some of the people I watched doing the Iron Man in Bolton last weekend. I really don't know how they do it. I mean a full marathon after everything else....

I managed to do my open water swim last Saturday. Finished 12th in my wave and 176th overall (out of over 2000) so it wasn't too bad. 26 minutes 45 seconds. Only off the winner by 7 minutes! Next year.....

Well done on your 10K PB Malcs and great run in Northumberland Sarah. It must have been difficult in the heat. I always meant to do that when I lived in the North East.

Are you ok Reiki? An RTC? Hope there wasn't much damage. Am finding it very difficult running at the moment. Forced myself out this evening and did 3x1000m in the park but it was all very slow. Usually manage 6:05 pace but tonight was more like 6:50. Was difficult.

Did the parkrun in Whitley Bay on Saturday but finished 17! Was way off pace. Not sure what happened but my pace really dropped off in the final mile. 

Did finally get down to the outdoor swim in Salford Quays last week and once I'd got over my fear of the the deep water I started to enjoy it. Managed to swim 1500m though my head was playing the Jaws theme all the way round.... 

My mile swim is on the 19th I let you know how it compares to running...

Wow another PB. Well done! You'll soon be beating my times. In fact you were a minute faster than me today... When is your next marathon? You should be able to smash your PB. 3:15 on the cards?

Have got a wetsuit for my swim but not sure if I'll fit in it at the moment as am currently having a chubby phase....

Will try and make it to the Hudds parkrun one day Hans. About to change over to the heaton park run.....
