Dan - sorry to hear about the nightmare with the race. Hope you rise from the ashes and have a great race at your next outing.
DrD - would love to chat and banter a bit at Abo. I expect you'll be competing for gold and trinkets up there, I might hang with you in the fast pen and then watch you disappear up the road like Road Runner when they fire the gun.
I'm not in as good form as I was this time last year. Not enough in the legs. Would love a finish time with 3:0x:xx. We'll have to see. I am feeling a little less lardy than I was 4-6 weeks ago so will hopefully do alright. Just on a 4 day cycle of 46 miles running including an 18 mile, a couple of 10s and a 20:30 Hampstead parkrun on the even tougher Route B. Today's 10 - my legs felt like lead, but i know that's just the fatigue of the 4 days. Maybe trot out a few more miles later and then take tomorrow off.
Glad to see none of you are letting the side down and keeping up that crazy high mileage - I'm proud of my 192 in August, I've only been building since early July, but am up to 50 per week and will up that a little more by the end of the month before I start tapering .....
