KS - yeah been done that there with the baby wipe bath at Glasto vibe - if someone had unzipped my tent door and looked in at that moment when i was really getting to the heart of the filth they would have "seen stuff that can never be unseen"

Alice is running with Mrs TJB a.k.a Cheryl a.k.a Cherub. I'll take a photo of 'em avec le medals - it's gonna be 27 degrees tomorrow on hampstead Heath so i expect them to take it easy in the heat. Afterwards will be umpteenicecreams'o'clock.

Did a run this morning - 10 mile summer burn and the endorphins are kicking in BIG TIME - feeling like i've munched a whole bag of E's! (which would be a really bad thing to do kids) 

I am feeling compelled to sign up for the Valencia Marathon end of Nov- anyone done it?

Dirty Glasto girl! get smelly in a field and get out ya nut for 5 days (wish I'd been there .....) 

Man of Steel second viewing highly enjoyable cinematic experience although a little heavy on the crash-bang-wallop!

Will try to run in the morning. Would really like to do parkrun on Saturday but will probably wait another week before I go for anything quick. 

Attentions turn to Murray tomorrow and then Alice doing race4life on Saturday. And a big thank you to the lovely donors who have contributed to A's sponsorship. I'll post a photo of her when she finishes.

'allo peeps (and 'allo nutty birds Kaz and Emmy)

am relieved to get through this morning's 9 mile tempo burn into the office. After the longy on Sunday i had a soreness n the lower calf/achilles area and i was Panickin Skywalker about the dreaded tendon. With a couple of days of ice and rest (and an extra day off running-seemed like an age!) i woke this morning feeling like i could give it a go and it went ok. I woundn;t be so naive to think i'm out of the woods yet so will be treading carefully for a while. Keeping the mileage down this week. I wonder if the Shrewsbury hills uncovered my weakness in the achilles area or whether i just went at it a bit to hard the week after shrewsbury causing my ongoing calf niggles to play up.

Anyway it's a reminder to all to pay heed to the body and rest, injuries are grim - mentally they sap the life out of you! What Eggy was saying yesterday about going long and training for marathons while managing niggling injuries is not much fun, and hard to get motivated - i hear ya Egg

Ian - make sure you use the official EHIC application - there are "agents" (scammers) out there that will charge you £25 for getting you the card that you can get for free. Don't pay a penny!

18 miles done, could have been 20 but decided to bail as Achilles started to feel tight. Planning ice rest and quieter week training wise. It was a great session, the 80s synthy soft rock cheese in my headphones really helped. Pacing was on the quick side of slow for me, 7'37 per mile. glorious day warming up nicely in the capital. 

RS, don't forget you had a decent run in Shrewsbury plus what you managed yesterday so you are getting good form back now. Well done, yesterday was quite warm.
