I'll be on the cava later today Soup Dragon - it's my son's 21st birthday and we've about 10 people around for dinner!

Happy Easter everyone - some fantastic weather for running out there at the mo xx

Hi Cinders yes I'll enter the ballot but it's been ages since I've been successful! Good luck

Hi booktrunk - not doing too badly thanks. Still relatively small in terms of what you're doing but I don't have any ultras to train for! 3 runs of 3-3.5 miles a week (including parkrun on Saturday) and a longer run on Sunday. Longest run so far has been 5.5 miles and I have a 10k race in 3 weeks so am well on schedule. Skipped this week's long run as I was too tired and ached like fury after spectating at London.

You're doing amazingly well - both of you and I read your posts in awe! Keep up the good work

Well done Kirsty - when I first started I used a very similar programme to train for Race for Life and now have 4 marathons under my belt. Take care to work slowly on it - you don't want to hurt yourself and get discouraged

Welcome Kirsty - have you started out already? Following a programme?

I got out this morning but my legs for some reason felt really tired so 3.4 miles for me. Will run again on Thursday, parkrun on Saturday and a longer run on Sunday - must try and crack that six miles this week!

Well done SL I'd wondered how you did - I was there spectating and it was really too hot! Are you going to enter the ballot for next year?

Hi Nick - most running clubs allow you to go along for a few sessions before you have to join so it's worth considering.

Didn't get round to running yesterday - too much to do around the house but am going to get out there today

Wow Daz - where you been? Are you still running?

VB I did go and spent almost six hours on the embankment - a truly amazing spectacle. So sad to hear about the poor man who died

It was very hot for them out there - I spent almost 6 hours on the embankment cheering them on. Saw one poor lad carried off by St John's Ambulance but hadn't realised that anyone had died - how very sad.
