Good work Wardi. I am jealous of the weather and curry, though I will force myself down the pub for a couple later.

CD - well raced in less than ideal conditions. I did the Epsom 10 a few years back and loved the use of the  Jockey weighing room for runners to get changed in - it isn't often we find ourself in a room where we would look overweight.

Good 20m TJB - are you racing again soon?

I followed the general trend of slogging around about 14 miles as CWTRJools, CC2 in ankle deep puddles and along muddy trails.

This thread moves so fast - both the runners and the posters. I wanted to say a big well done to DrD for the sub 75 in Gosport - just imagine how fast you would have been without the massive beer belly? The other highlight last Sunday was Dachs 10k time - amazing!

Just gentle running this week. Got a few niggles which I hope clear up ready to build a base in Dec.

Well done Jools on PB and nice running Toro.

It was nice to chat with DrD at start of Gosport - I am blaming my bushy beard costing me a PB

My warm up involved getting wet and cold so almost wish I had sat in car. Coupled with the fact my ankle has been giving me problems all week I questioned why I was there.

I set off hoping for about 83 minutes but somehow the pace felt pretty comfortable and so I ended up going a bit quicker. I managed to finish in 81:30 so happy with result. If I had known I was anywhere near that shape I would have gone a bit harder and tried for a PB. This year I have managed to run my 3 fastest half marathons which after 20 years of running I am pretty pleased with - just got to convert it to a decent marathon next year.

oh and I think I saw you TR but it was near the cone turn round point and I wasn't up for shouting across a random hello.

Been too busy this week to post and have a slightly painful ankle so not much running either.

Good luck to those racing this weekend.Especially to Banksy in Valencia.

I am looking forward to meeting up with DrD again and seeing TR. Sounds like we will all be in orange vests but suspect DrD will have the shortest shorts...

Selbs -  have you christened the x-talon 212s in the mud yet?

CD - well done on the duathlon. I ride a fair bit around the roads near Boxhill and know they aren't that grippy when wet. Weather wise it was a pretty horrid day.

Sounds like Banksy and DanA are both in fine form for upcoming marathon but with pretty different sessions.

Lev - hope thinks aren't a negative as you fear.

Nice run CW with some tasty speedy bits.

I took out my new X-Talon 212s and got them completely caked in  mud. They were great on the muddy hilly trails on Wimbledon Common. So thanks to all who recommended them.

Well toughed out Lev and nice photo with Yuki. So close LR1976 but very well run given the tough course and conditions. Another amazing run by MsPP - I don't know what you are both getting up to but it seems to be working  !!

TR - I am running Gosport as well but suspect it will be more a hard run than a full on race. It will be nice to say hello at the start. Nice training from you over the last couple of days.

I managed a cold, wet 9 miles tonight. Hope to add a speed session this week as well now the cold and post marathon tiredness has gone... oh and the X-Talon 212s arrived so will find some muddy trails at weekend.

Thanks for all the sizing advice guys. Love the tale of taking scales to shop!!

Best heckle I have heard about from a runner was he was passing a pub one afternoon. Standing outside the boozer having a fag was a portly middle aged geezer who shouted "haven't you got anything better to do with your time?"

Thanks for the response on the (trial) trail shoes. Looks like the X-Talon 212 are the ones to go for. Selbs beat me to the next question about size. I normally size 8 in Asics but need 8.5 in Adidas - any ideas on how Inov8 compare?
