Running eye - I agree with the others, more flat runs. I do too many hilly long runs but at tleast they are tarmac, I never run off road.
Kevin - put the gadget on elapsed time, or get a stopwatch.
LS21 - I tought about attching my elastic to you, but needed to play it safe pace wise. Nice to see you run strongly.
TT - I like the less focussed build up, make sure you keep to a self imposed limit. I remember Marigold saying in one of his blogs this year that his fitness was down, but its not a bad thing to be unfit early on, I think there's too many folk sdoing too long a build up and burning out by race time. Save the fitness and losing weight until when its needed is the way to go I reckon.
Piman - get yourself a white cap and soak it at the water stations. I run in a cap all year round, and then take it off for extra cooling on VLM day.
60min bike and 2k in the lido today, I am at the going down stairs without holding the rail stage, but I think its foolish to run in the week after a marathon.
