CC2 - well done on the clutch of gold medals!

TT - great you are now in the new house, it most be nice feeling after all the work.

I saw Elvis today... well I saw Dan at parkrun and sadly he wasn't in costume. Not much to report here. Had a cold over new year but been running this week plodding out the miles. With a long run tomorrow should make 55ish for the week.

Wardi - glad your place is ok. All sounds traumatic - at least pub was dry and warm.

PP - serious combo of drinks there esp the Newcastle Brown so well done for getting out after that!

TR - have you got any races lined up before VLM? I am planning on Bramley 20 and Fleet half.

Jools - yep your 2:49 was special!!

Total miles for me this year was 2173 which was a record as I didn't cycle much. Only PB was in 50 mile race though that was my first and initially last ultra,,, but I am weakening and considering another 50 mile or 100k race in 2016.

Belated Season greetings to all and especially hoping the flood waters recede for those effected.

Not posted for while but have been reading from time to time, noted Ryan's impressive time in Pisa - I hope you managed to celebrate hard afterwards.

With just over 16 weeks until London I have been ticking over and running about 55 miles per week - which has surprised me as I seem to have spent as much time in the pub as running. The plan is for that to change in January.

All the best Jools.  I hope you have a storming run.

CW  - I hope you had fun in Snowdon marathon. I saw the course record was broken so hope the conditions were favourable to at least enjoy the views.

Congratulations CJeff - excellent pacing and it points to you being able to go quicker next time.

I have just got back from Abingdon. It was nice to see Dan before and even more briefly after as he raced to get ready for the rugby. In previous years Abo has been a sub 3 fest for the thread . This year it may have just been Dan and myself out and both of us were using it as training run rather than race. I managed to drag my untrained aching body round in 3:12 so happy with that. Time to rest, drink beer and then prepare for London.


Abingdon Marathon 2015

Just popping in to wish all the runners good luck for Sunday. I will be there for my 8th time at Abingdon - which is testament for it being a great event. Always have fond memories of the Stadium finish as it the place I did my first sub 3 (albeit with 8 seconds to spare). I think I have set a PB at Abingdon four times, so I think it is a good course - just don't get carried away in the first half!

No target for me this time so just a chance to use it as a training run and enjoy the day.

Wardi - Well done on grinding out a training run marathon. I know what you mean about them being harder work even as a training run.

DanA - Madness, My mate managed to get round UTMB this year in 43 hours, he is a broken man now though after three 100 miles races in 4 months. Hopefully see you in Abingdon though I will be finishing long after you have showered and ordered your first beer.

PP - massive congrats on the national vest.

Nice  long run with a good half Selbs.

CW  - I will be interested to hear your reflections on Snowdonia. I have seen footage of the race and it does look good. 

ES - you are coming into some fine form ready for NYC. Now you have got the sub 3 sorted I expected you will be making some big holes in your PB but suspect NY might be a tough course.

Not much to report from me. After the 50 mile race in July and I didn't run much for various reasons (eg food poisoning, niggles and drinking too much!). Got to a couple of weeks ago and realised I had entries for Bournemouth and Abingdon marathons. Decided with only 2 runs over 10 miles in the last 2 months, these would be training runs. So last week managed 3:21 for Bournemouth. Expecting something similar next Sunday in Abingdon. Any other thredders doing Abo?
