Ah, how lovely. This is my first check-in here for ages, and it seems to have been well timed. Fantastic stuff, Slokey. I really enjoyed reading that. So, was that about a 4.5 hour marathon? I assume this is where you're aiming to gain at least 30 minutes in your next attempt? Hopefully the home friction has eased and your "noticeably different" body shape and Mrs Slokey are now very happy together.
Ant - welcome to sunny Southport. Where are you based? If you haven't already done so, then head through the pinewoods towards Formby, or through the sand dunes between Ainsdale and Birkdale. Or on the trails between the Hillside & Birkdale golf courses. All good running routes. Most half marathoners will have run the local half last weekend, so won't be heading to Lytham on Sunday. I mean, what sort of mentally unhinged lunatic would want to run both?
PMJ - Stop pretending you're travelling to secretive and mysterious locations. We all know you're really sitting in your garden shed playing Dungeons & Dragons.
Happy birthday Jools.
5 miles yesterday, 4 today. All being well, I might reach 20 in a week for the first time since, oh, way back when.
