you learn a lot on this thread. Back in winter I went on a 15 mile tempo run with the speedster that is TD and he taught me the shoe lace tuck into each other technique to stop them flapping around. I do it all the time now

Morning All

I had a great run at Abingdon on Sunday. Ran a pb in 3:02:23. Couldn't have done any better on the day. Preparation was not perfect, but the conditions were good and I showed up in as good a shape as I could have been and executed well.

No more road races until the spring ..... and the Big One!

btw I managed to update my Boston entry with the new time, it might move me up a starting wave. As I'm flying home in the evening, I'd like to start as high up as possible.  If anyone does a marathon PB between now and then, Its worth letting them know.

Awesome running jimbob congratulations, what is the target for Boston?

Freddy1 - I plump for high 5 Isogel 60ml, smooth tasting

Bye

Agent P - the target for Boston will be 3-fold. 1) Run a PB  2) Run (& finish) with a big smile on my face  3) and get a humungous Double bacon, cheese and chilli burger with extra Mayo, spicy relish and pickles, and Chilli fries on the side, as my post race meal (and cold beers)   - take note Dannir

Weedy please put me, you, and a shit load of crazy pals down for the Amsterdam Marathon on October 18th. We'd better have a thread at some point instead of hijacking this old place - in the spirit of making other Dammers feel welcome to join in the banter. Lets wait till we all signed up and i'll start the ball rolling in a couple of weeks.
