Hope Florence went well JB.

Good luck with the time management TR.

TT.. I did notice your pile of rubble pictures on FB, the before & after pics should be satisfying come the day.  Didn't know you were a bass player though.

Jools.. nice intervals & the 14 miler.  I don't enjoy the wind chill factor in this weather either! 

PP.. good to see you getting back to it.

First proper long run (circa 20m) of my campaign scheduled for today.  Managed 6m in 50mph gusts and horizontal rain before narrow misses with a variety of flying objects persuaded me to head back indoors and finish on the treadie.  15m on that watching footie and tennis whiled away the miles so a pleasing 21m in the bank.

I got a double room for 4 nights @ £280 for a really nice hotel on the Avenue De Parallel mentioned in my previous post which is walking distance from the start/finish.

I notice they are almost up to 10,000 entries.  Any ditherers please note that the entry price goes up beyond 10,000 so best to act now if you fancy it.

SL.. all the best for the new arrival, and the Dorset Marathon.  Aye, only time my nerve related niggle affects me now is sitting in a car/plane for over an hour but running is blissfully unaffected.  Nice to be training niggle free again though I'm currently being overtaken by milk floats and steamrollers but work is in progress!

Ryan.. impressive mileage you're fitting in, I will look forward to seeing what comes out on race day.

4.2m + 10.3m double today either side of work, thankfully not as cold as the weekend.

Thought I would interrupt the tumbleweed to report a 16.4m MLR this morning.  Started in cold but sunny conditions, ominous clouds towards the end but managed to get home 45 seconds before an icy downpour!

Nice cooking on the turbo Padams!

Splendid reps in the wind PP.

4.1m steady this morning then 7.5m on the treadie this evening with 10 x 400m & 2 x 800m. Certainly blew a few cobwebs away!

DanA.. back in the early 2000's the Dash had an 'area' contest.. North/South/South West etc.  Each area tried to bring their best runners and it gradually became a showdown of the UK's best runners.  Like the Manchester Marathon there is no influx of Africans so it is purely a British bust up.  As it is an 'Age UK' charity run I would guess there isn't any bumper prize money.  I see Martin Rees clocked 34.03 as an M60!

The course isn't particularly pretty (up Kirkstall Road, round a bollard then back down again to finish outside the Town Hall.  Almost flat and therefore fast though. They didn't have a finish banner across the finish line towers this year probably due to the wind so that and the lack of a goody bag got the moaners out in force on social media!

Many happy returns Padams!

Well mudlarked PP, & well raced to Jools, Bains, DanA, Charlie & CD (nice age win!)

TT.. good news about the new house. I'm still not prepared to put any money on you lining up in a spring marathon though

Jools.. Abbey Dash results just in case you hadn't found them..


5m after work tonight though had to re-route as my normal riverbank trail was completely submerged!

Just back off hols.  Those who know me on FB will know we managed the long trudge up Mount Teide on Tenerife, nearly 6m of climbing in all.  In truth some of the climbs we did on the neighbouring Island of Gomera were tougher due to heat & humidity.  Lovely island though with very few flat bits!

Jools.. forecast for Leeds on Sunday is currently light rain & breezy if you're still thinking of coming up.  Should have a tail wind on the way back in theory. I will keep an eye out for you on the Town Hall steps if the weather is ok for loitering post race.

11m today looking at patches of floodwater in the fields - with more rain due tomorrow & Saturday.

All the best in NYC ES, hope you have a stormer.

Hope the relays go well Bains.

Belated well dones to Jools and a wounded Charlie for last weekend's marathon exploits.

TR.. you'll be doing doubles again before long!  I've put the bike away for winter now as it's usually too cold for my hands; having said that this afternoon's run felt like May!

PP.. nice session there, looks like the legs are recovering.  Actually I'm flying off tomorrow to where you have just come back from (Tenerife/La Gomera).  Walking/climbing & beer sort of holiday.  Hope to get up Mt. Teide if the weather is ok.
