Hi everyone, hope you're all keeping well. My parkrun times are slowly coming down so fingers crossed I can go sub-40 at the Salford 10K a week on Sunday.

Interested about your approach to the autumn marathon Puffy and Minni. When you say minimal mileage how much is that per week? I am not going for the full marathon but doing the Chester Metric marathon which I think works out at 16 miles ish. I'll cheer you on at the start line Mr P. I can remember you cheering me on near the finish line last year.

For the York marathon Reiki they may do the 10 mile race like the metric at Chester. The marathon runners go off first and then an hour later the metric runners are set off. The metric is an out and back of the final eight miles of the marathon. What does the course for the 10 miles look like? It seemed to work ok at Chester last year. Hopefully they won't set you all off together.

I really don't know how you all do these 24 hour races. I just feel exhausted reading about them. A few of my friends are making the leap to triathlon at the moment with some going for the Ironman in Bolton next year. I can't believe they are paying ??420 to put themselves through it!

Another week and another slow parkrun. Did the Bolton course this week and finished 22nd in my second worse time ever. I am not too worried though as my speed seems to always drop off every summer......

Next nightmare is the rumour that a friend is having their wedding the day before the London marathon, urgh! It's not set in stone yet but I am hoping she decides that the weather is better in June. I've kind of got it in my head that am doing London now and have half planned the training, might just have to switch to Manchester though it isn't as good.

Great running at TR24 Malcs and Angela. I don't know how you do it. It sounds like torture to me, though a pie and beer van both sound tempting.

Hope everyone else is having a better time at running than me.

I haven't been on here for ages....... Hope everyone is well. I have had a look back and read about some injuries.... eek! Reiki you always seem to have trouble, hope the ribs are less sore soon. Well done on the GFA place. Just sorted mine now too. We all meeting at the bench again?

Malcs your speed is amazing. The asics 26.2 has done wonders for your running. Hope you have a good time at the TR24 this weekend....

My running has been a bit rubbish lately. Did my slowest 10K in years last Sunday. Guess I've eaten too much and trained too little. So I've just entered a few more races to try and get my running mojo back. Going to target the Salford 10K in September to see how much I can improve. I'll let you know how I get on!

Bigeater I got about the same on my Garmin but as the booklet said it is officially measured so it'll be fine. Not sure what the margin of error is on a garmin.

Sorry cross post! Animal I only really know the trails for the top part near Rawtenstall. I imagine most of it is quite flat as it follows the train line or the river. I am trying to look at the map to get a better idea but the one on the website looks awful. The only major hilly bits I can think of would be the tunnels. Not sure what they are going to do there. Now it is lighter in the evenings I might do a run along the course and see....

I don't think the qualifying times are as harsh as you think Animal. I also think they lower it for people between 35-39 too....

I am very tempted by London next year too. They moved the GFA time back from 3:00 to 3:05 for senior men last year so I am hoping they keep it there. If they move it back to 3:00 I'll hate those 26 seconds even more!!!

Recovery going well managed a nice 3 miler this evening and now looking for my next challenge. Have finally signed up for Race the Train and also have an open water swim lined up against some of my colleagues from work - am a little competitive so I had better win! Though I know one of them has resorted to swimming lessons to improve his technique!

There is a link on the website for times and positions and stuff, Mr P. Good luck for London next week. I expect to see pictures of everyone meeting up at the park bench!

These are my results from the net Gun Time: 03:00:49 Net Time: 03:00:25. Was just the last mile - dragged myself along at 7:50 pace! Worth bearing in mind for next time! How did you get on Mr P?
