Evening.  What about a nice pulled beef lasagne Tim?

You need a piece of brisket, 1lb will do 2 people, you'll prolly need double that  I guess?

Unroll it, and cut it into inch square sections. Briefly sear off half a dozen pieces at a time preferably in an iron casserole dish and put to one side. Then put all the meat back in the pot and add 50/50 red wine and beef stock to really cover the meat. Any herbs can go in as well, thyme and rosemary are good for this. perhaps half an onion and a carrot too, because after the beef's ready you can reduce the liquid down for gravy at a later date.

Bring to the boil and either simmer for two hours or put it in the oven fan 140 degrees for two hours.

When it's ready - not dropping off itself like bourgignon, you want a bit of texture - remove the chunks of beef and shred them. You're supposed to do it with two forks but I end up tearing it apart with my fingers.

Then you just make a bolognese sauce as usual, a little oil in a p an, cook the beef with a few good squeezes of tomato puree, then I cheat a bit and use a jar of Loyd grossman tomato and basil sauce. A few spoonfuls of the braising liquid can go back in to stop it going too dry and add a bit of beefy flavour too

Then you just layer it up, top off with a bit of white sauce, I don't put cheese in, and sprinkle with nutmeg. 40 minutes at 140 degrees again and it is done



Awesome Puffsta I am loving this. 

And I am loving the new mantra - Remember dont be shit.  

Angela I suspect some Portsmouth runners are already planning their #asics262 application for next year. 


Slowkoala Thanks very much. I am pretty much staggered. It has also been suggested i did not run hard enough last week. Which i strenuously deny.  It was a carefully planned and executed no risk marathon plan. 


So I have a new parkrun PB  




Lost for words!!!

BK Canter Hows the legs doing buddy?  Yes I am doing Bacchus. Not going to be my PB attempt marathon. I am hoping to run it with the brilliant running community and have fun.     Talking of which Angela did you enter in the end? And Sarah?

Christian Thanks buddy, your support, like everyone else's on here has been just brilliant. Charing Cross has always been brilliant for me, I do like to get there early so have been on one of the first trains out.

Malcs Thank you so much for your kind  donation, I really appreciate it. I spent this morning gardening at the hospice, I am very tired now, running a marathon is so much easier than gardening if you are not used to it or in my case, that good at it.

Andrea And thank you so much for your donation, they do such a wonderful job there, it was moving to see it first hand this morning, you kind generosity help so much. And I will see you at the end of London. Much like the end of Paris. Only without the wine.

Puffsta  How is that recipe coming on??? I am sooooo hungry

Tim - I have only lurked on here having voted for you at the very beginning.  I just read your report and cannot tell you how much it pleases me to see you gain so much from the whole process. It makes the Asics program very special indeed and highlights how much benefit you can obtain from it when you have your eyes and mind wide open to the process.  Well done.  I have a feeling sub-3:15 won't be long... 

MsE Thank you for taking the time to come out from lurkers corner and say this, I am so pleased. It really is the best program and one can gain so much from it, but sometimes you get out what you put in. I really hope I can get sub 3.15. I also hope you are on track with your running goals too. Are you running a spring marathon?

Buxton Running Bunny Thanks for your kind words. This process is special and what is brilliant is being part of something which involves so many other people. The forumites, twitter followers, RW readers, that is a lot of motivation and encouragement to channel into positivity but it worked. I can say that I am still on cloud 9, thinking of extending the lease up here. Greg Whyte said "Nothing good ever came easy" and he was  right. When it does come, its all the sweeter though. How are you doing in your taper now, is it going okay?

ktkt Thank you so much for that. I will be enjoying London without worrying about the time although that said, no doubt my internal determination will kick in at some point. Probably the 1st mile.    Good luck to you in London, hope you get your race strategy sorted. I would also advocate having A, B & C goals.

CDUB72 Really great point there on pacing, so true. And interesting that the time on my fridge which I looked at daily was 3hrs 28 mins. Fascinating. Wonder what Dynamo would make of that.

Slowkoala My legs are spot on now, Did a lovely session on the bike earlier with a gentle run after. Parkrun tomorrow and 9 miles on Sunday. All looking good for London. How is everything with you?

Nice one reikirabbit I love those sessions.

I will be back later for more comprehensive post, these last few days have been manic but I saw this and thought I should post it. Very apt about the power of the mind.

Have a good day everyone.

Charing Cross has always been fine for me. As Malcs says, London Bridge can often be packed.

If anyone has any spare coppers, I am going to be running London to raise money for my local hospice. Sadly a dear friend died there last year. I promised him i would run Brighton Mara this year for his charity, but as you know, Paris was the spring marathon. This is the least I can do in his memory.

So we are nearly at this weekends marathon runners. I have my fingers crossed you achieve your goals/dreams. 

And for London, can we post up who is running plus what start they are going from and are we meeting at the bench???

Puffsta I do need your post marathon nutrition guidance please!! 

Martin Nice running buddy, you must be feeling good?  Hopefully you are jumping up and down on Friday. I hope its you and Watford who go up, and that we stay up. But who knows.
