LMH - we arrived in Dec and we'll be in Perth until jan 2018.  I've been away with work since Jun and get back in Nov. Well done on the win.

I managed 60k last week and the one treadmill was free for a full hour yesterday so I plodded to 12k but got the most amazing runner's high after 40 miutes and didn't want to stop.

Hello all, it's been a while. I had a read back a week ago as i'd started running again and felt the bug coming back.  I'm just doing 6-12k on a treadmill at 5m/k pace at the moment but HR is now below 140 ave, weight's flying off and I even did 50k last week (44k on the dreadmill, 6k getting lost). I should hit 50k this week too so not too shabby. Very busy bobbing about the ocean so i'll probably just lurk, sorry, but well done and keep going! I've entered Tokyo semi elite ballot so hopefully i'll be succesful otherwise I may do an ultra in Dec/Jan as there are no marathons until May time over in Oz.

DanA nice report and Padams nice PB on the track.

Yes i've applied too.  Fingers crossed.  It looks like long odds for semi elite entry (2:41) but I think it guarantees an entry just not pen A.

Well done all! Some great times. Really pleased for you.
Great to finally meet some of you if only briefly.


I haven't really absorbed the race yet. Normally I'm planning my next race, trying to calculate new targets. I think I am happy to finally go sub 2:45, earn that Champ start place and feel that I have achieved something.

8 from our team went sub 2:45, quite impressive considering 2 years ago I was 4th in 2:55.

On phone all week but will try to keep up with reading reports.

Marders, Closer to 10s. 2013 I ran off Blue 1 behind champs and my chip/gun difference is 10 sec with sharp elbows once tapes removed. Just checked Po10.

No jog for me. Just rest. Leg feels much better. Hopefully be ready tomorrow.
Had an amazing lunch at Borough Market (WOKIT).
