HR, great 10k pb and congrats on recent progress. Superb! Of course you will be sniffing out the sub35 soon enough and training even harder .....
Jools, it's been a great year for you, I'd take that sub40 and serve it with some leaves and lovely dressing. It's a great run. I have a sub40 10k for the first 10k at the great west run, but it doesn't really count, as it was a half Mara (although it was a chip timed split of the first 10). I'm targeting a proper sub40 (actually a sub39) at the Bupa London10k in May (anyone else doing that-meet up?)- that'll be one of my post marathon training, still got some fitness in my legs, go hell for leather and see if/how much I've improved race.
LordDids, nice sub19 at parkrun, that's another benchmark I will be trying to hit in early 2014. I have a 19.49 from the summer at Hampstead Heath and 21 even from plymvalley Glastonbury style mudfest from October, so looking for a new best at Hampstead around end of January and if I can't sneak under 19 I might slide over to the flats of Regents Park and hopefully nail something good there. I try not to do these parkruns too much as I cannot bear 5k running. It's just gaspy, no let up just run like the clappers and try not to get passed by too many youngsters at the end.
today had a nice 13 mile "Long run" in 1.36. Quite hilly round my way, took the hills slow, but maybe a little quicker coming back down the other side.
Fantastic mileage I'm reading about on here as usual ....... I'm still in marathon recovery mode. Might hit 30 miles next week.
