Well done at Tronso you crazy midsummer marathon maniacs ... hats off to Mr HIAHS for a juicy PB, as well as me clubmate Jake who, for a while, has been gunning for a c.3 hour marathon / London GFA time and he finally put a good one together on the day and bagged a 3.02 and 15th overall. He got his GFA application in on the last day and got his acceptance so job done. Put him on a fast course like London, Berlin, Amsterdam or Valencia and I reckon you knock another 5 mins off for sure.
I've been taking part in various track races with varying results. Short stuff is not really my bag, but you get a chance to run an even paced hard tempo run on a track 5000. Friday evening I have the 10,000 which is a little more tricky .... a second a lap can make or break your race. I'll just try to run it even and put it down as good training. I had a good 10k at Bupa London recently in 38.24.
List Fairly please put me down for:
Cardiff Half - Oct 2nd 2016
Reading Half - March 19th 2017
London Marathon - April 23rd 2017
Vitality 10,000 - May 29th 2017
