TT.. sounds like you're in good nick ticking over, hope the Frankfurt build up continues well.

PP.. I would guess your 'packet of opal fruits' colour scheme was a blur at that pace .  Congrats on the PB & top ten ranking, very impressed.

Dachs.. nice one, that time would win my local Park Run most weeks!

Good session Dr Dave, some great paces in there. 

Bainsp.. you're flying at the moment, good stuff.

Still building my mileage back up post rest, 10.2m after work last night.  Legs feel fresher so glad I took an easy recovery month.

Dachs.. Ha!  Funnily enough I've been stuck on 49 Park Runs for a few weeks now so popped down to York this morning to earn a free t-shirt.  20.33 was nearly half a minute quicker than Wednesday's effort on a breezy morning so I will take that as progress.  BTW you recently said you favoured flat parks etc.  If you're ever up this way give it a try - dead flat & very fast.  We've already had such luminaries as Johnny Brownlee, Laura Weightman & Lucy Hall (Team GB Triathlon) trying for fast times not to mention Lord Didsbury & Al P!

A tip for Abbey Dash - if you have a non running helper give them a shirt/fleece to look after for the finish.  Runners tend to congregate for a chat on the Town Hall steps post race and it can be bliddy cold up here in November!

Bains.. cracking 5k, puts me to shame!

Stet.. good to see you on the thread again & some solid training in the bank.

Apologies for recent radio silence.  During July my legs felt increasingly tired & heavy so I've spent the last 3-4 weeks doing no more that 2-3 runs a week and a bit on the bike.  Back to it at the York 5k last night, a very rusty 20:58 from me which is just about what I was expecting after recent inactivity.  Nice to back racing though and feeling a bit more spring in the legs.  Had a chat with the other TR (middle ground thread), plus PRF & his girlie Hannah.  The latter knocked 30 secs off her 5k PB to clock 17:38 and take 1st lesser spotted prize.

Speedy 10k's from SL & Dachs noted.  Good to see Padams & Dr Dave getting back to it.

Very pleased for Marigold & Marders, well deserved. 

TMap.. nice to see you back, sorry to hear it's been a tough year.

PP.. many congrats on the BMAF silver!  BTW saw Steve Hackett's band doing some early Genesis stuff at a festival last weekend.  How's this for a setlist, storming performance!

Marigold's latest media stop - Radio 5 around 8:30 this morning.

Sorry to hear about your road incident Padams.  I got hit by a car about 6-7 years ago fortunately not at high speed.  I skidded across the road after falling just managing to stop before heading into oncoming traffic.  Luckily it was winter so I had tracksters and  long sleeve top on.  Still lost a fair bit of skin but in summer I would have been a stickier mess I reckon.  All the best for your recovery, sounds like a frustratingly slow process.

I'm just waiting for CRAB to appear and  say 'just a smidgeon the right side of reasonable' or something similar! 

Really pleased for you Marigold, a top morning's work.

Well done on the sub 60 anyway Dr Dave, sorry to hear about the house/home problems.

A very decent bank of mileage DanA, brisk Park Run in the middle too.

Good work on the bike TR.

All these 16 somethings PP, impressive but frustrating in equal measure I would think.  Best of luck in smashing it soon.  Good race yesterday under the circumstances.

Great stuff as usual Lev.

CC2..worth waiting for the proper assessment.  Hope it's nothing much.

Nothing much to report here.  Still nursing a slightly cranky Achilles back to health.  As a result I've cut runs down to 3 a week and filled the other days with as much cycling as possible, seems to be improving anyway.

Dachs.. I missed out a tribute to your bundle of PB's, top man!

Many happy returns Jools, may the new category bring you many prizes.

Good to see you're on the mend Al P, nice racing.

Very solid stuff from TR & JH1, good going fellas.

Cracking mixture of volume & quality there Lev.

Charlie.. speaking from experience.. as you get older the recovery doesn't bounce back like it did 5/10 years ago (not that I'm inferring that you're an old codger!).  You do put some pretty heavy duty training in so I guess it is simply a matter of listening to your body.  Hope everything settles down soonest anyway.

DT19.. you mentioned sunglasses.  I've worn Oakleys for running & cycling for over 10 years now, wouldn't buy anything else.  Lenses are top quality, plus they are so comfortable you tend to forget you've got them on after a mile or so.  I tend to go for the bronze lenses as they are good in both strong sun and cloudy conditions.  They are expensive at RRP but have a look through this lot - I think they must be cancelled orders & the like, I got my last pair from there with about 1/3rd off.  Good luck tonight BTW.


Andrew.. sorry to hear that, you're not having much luck lately.

Alehouse.. all the best with the comeback.

Mr V.. nice 5 miler there.

42.35 for 10k last night, about 3 seconds quicker than a similar flat course 4 weeks ago so I'll take it.  I seem to be better at 5k's than 10k's these days, not sure why - still, happy to be half decent at any distance at my age!
