well done kaz - you mad woman - two runs in one day FFS!

I did a little trot home from the station last night and i was out again this morning for a 7.5 miler. Saw a fella running in a Paris green finishers top (i was wearing mine too) so we exchanged cheery greetings as we passed one another! beautiful morning for it in London - i went through 3 parks didn't push it too hard - started of as a recovery run but i settled and then it became a tempo run after about 3 miles.

I'm down from cloud nine about Sunday - still hovering around cloud four but my focus has switched firmly to Berlin (which is actually my warm up marathon for Paris 2014)

Haven't looked at the race plan for a couple of weeks - but i think there are a couple of 20 mile runs on the menu in July (gulp)

Aaron, i can tell you that i have had a lot of encouragement on this thread and have been inspired by a lot of people on this thread. We've all gotten so much from it and we all went to Paris this year and had fantastic experience this year and all produced great performances. Here, you'll not be judged by anyone - times don't really matter, PBs are nice for us and help us improve ourselves on our own personal quests but we are here because we love it. Every time you get off your butt and go and train you are winning – you are doing the work, you’re not sitting around – you are grafting and you are doing your body a favour. The marathon / the medal / the pb is just the icing on the cake – the work and effort you put in is what counts – not the end result.


(unless your Emmy – where the marathon and the medal are the training sessions and the 100 club running vest in 3 years will be the icing on her insane cake)

Not quite sure what all that means TD - you know i'm a bit of a "run forrest run" type, but i'd take that 3.08 and do a naked slow dance with it in my local pub - better get on with the endurance stuff then in time for Berlin - and will you be joining us for some convocaunicating?
