Spring races are well and truly here. good luck this weekend those doing halves. Wardi have a great time in Barca ... I have a couple of pals over there and will be stalking, please let me know your bib and i'll stalk you too if you like.
Selbs, sorry to hear you are having troubles on the home front. Hope everything goes smoothly. It doesn't matter if you don't target the 2.40 in London this time .... you can continue to improve your marathon PB for many years. It's the short sharp stuff that goes first. I'm sure you have a few more tasty PBs to beat that stunning sub2.45 you got last year. Like you say have a few more weeks with a bit of focus, use some of that muscle memory ... you'll still go sub3 easy at London if you can put a bit more long stuff in the bank.
I'm currently back in training for a few more weeks .... recovered myself from Tokyo as best I could and trying to maintain what I have for Paris on April 3rd. 33 miles so far this week at varying paces/distances
