Well done Paul.  Like the Daffs and Pippi said that's a sub 5 on an 'ordinary' day

Hi both. 

Good mileage there Paul .  Has the taper madness set in or are you raring to go?

Barbara, any progress on the injury front?  Fingers crossed.

Things a bit manic here of late.  Last weekend went really well, if tiring.  Everyone seemed to have a great time.  Couple of little hiccups but nothing major.  We had to alter the route at the last minute because of works on the sea defences so both races were long - the 10k c6.5 miles and the marathon was c27 miles.  I ran the 10k and day 2's marathon.  Two of my fastest races for ages.  Combination of the feel good vibe coming off everyone and the course really suited me.  The out and back laps meant you kept seeing people all the time which meant lots of high 5's and chat.

Other than that it's been a bit rubbish.  Work is really rubbish at the mo so it's not great.  Potentially a summer of waiting to hear if we have jobs and what those jobs will be.  Redundancy package is pretty dire so it's a tense time.  Now I'm 50 I was rather hoping that my job hunting days were over.  Hey ho.

Not been to that neck of the woods for a long time.  Great place to go and chill out.  Sure you'll have a fab time and come back ready to get cracking on the next step

It's my Bells & Whistles race festival next weekend.  Beginning to panic big time now.  I just want it to all go well and for everyone to enjoy themselves.  I shall be a basket case by next Friday!!!!

Right, off to bed to try and catch up on some sleep!

Brilliant time there Daffs. We've plenty of time to get that extra bit you need to crack that 5 hour target

Where are you off to on hols?  Somewhere fab I hope.

Weekend went ok.  Had an issue with a drunken guy wandering the corridors of the hotel last night for about three hours keeping us all awake.  They got the police out to him in the end but being a bit of an insomniac it completely ruined my chances of a good night's sleep.  Prem Inn may regret their policy of refunds if you don't get a good night's sleep!!

Races went ok.  Yesterday was 4.43.34 and today 4.44.57.  Very windy both days and the addition of a few unpleasant hail showers on the penultimate lap.  Lost a few mins changing into my rain jacket and then I struggled to get going on that lap.  Managed to get some pace back on the last lap but annoyed to be slower today.  Still all miles in the bag

Fabulous stuff. Brilliant run in what sounds like pretty challenging weather! Always good to see the work paying off! !

Just back from MK so will catch up properly when I've had chance to have a bath and unpack

Just popping in - may have intermittent internet access over the weekend.  In Milton Keynes for days 6 and 7 of Week at the Knees (7 day marathon-fest).  Weather interesting at the mo - do hope it's calmer tomorrow.  Am so bored of windy/rainy runs!!!

Hope all goes well for Liverpool.  No going mad - either on the day or between now and the race!!  Try to keep it nice and easy in the first half and then hopefully you'll have a bit of oomph in the bank for the last few miles.

Barbara and Bam, hope you get some relief from the dreaded PF soon. Be interested to hear how you get on with the rock tape Barbara.  I use it for my knee - it's great stuff.

Congrats on the PB Barbara.

I had PF for a while.  Fingers crossed it doesn't hang around long.  I found freezing a bottle of water and then rolling my foot on it helped ease it when it was really sore.

Can you aqua jog in the pool?  Might be worth a try.
