PP.. looks like a cracking cycling holiday, nice one.  Fancy a pedal down the Cuillin Ridge?  I was gobsmacked..


LS21.. that must be an old PC you used as an emergency, I'm on a Windows OAP computer system here, it's got it's own castors.  Fantastic report and a belting time fella, hope you settle happily into Lake District life when the time comes.  BTW Marders' hairdo is half way between the very short cut I saw at VLM and the Nickleback roadie style you mention.  With his racing headband it's more 'Fame' era I suppose.  Better than that 'Rhythm is a Dancer' song anyway.

Dr Dave.. good to see you still buzzing.  Relating to the 'rest a bit' messages there is an elite American girl (2:30 standard) who trains hard for the big day.  Interviewed in the P&D book she says.. 'the next day after a marathon some people go out for a 10m run; I'm out for a 10 day party'.  Eat doughnuts & drink beer this week, you've earned it fella.  

Nicely run Stet and congrats on the qualifying time.

Jools.. if I remember you were a bundle of nerves before Frankfurt last year, didn't affect your performance too much as I recall..   

4m + 7m today, not much fun in the wind but good to get it done.  Entering a marathon last week seems to have got me doing doubles again.

Great run for 2nd Al P, & congrats on the PB along with TJB (full on effort duly noted!)

Dr Dave.. nicely done on the PB too, sorry to hear about the marshalling.  When me & a mate were lead cyclists at a local 10k he went off with the leading group & I dropped back to 5th-10th as there was a significant gap.  Seems obvious to me that if you are going to lose a runner it is where the gaps are.  Nice consolation on that big PB & a champs start though! 

Ryan.. well done on a 'close & a cigar' sub 2:45.

Tick Tock.. 2:58 with a cold is very commendable, sterling stuff!

Still a cracking run in the conditions Dan A, all the best for the Florence build up.

Lev.. right on time at Cabbage Patch, good confidence booster!

Charlie.. a well ground out 20m after a heavy night!

Dids.. frustrated by the Yorks Mara coverage.  Typical celebrity-led fare, they spent a disproportionate amount of time interviewing/featuring an enormous rugby player whilst Race Jase didn't get an interview at the end despite being 1st Yorkshireman.  He fared better on local news which may be some consolation!

11.5 today giving me just over 50m for the week, base mileage coming along ok.

Many happy returns RJ, good forward thinking on the marathon entries!

All the best for tomorrows racers/marathoners.

ThR.. Brass Monkey entry opens late Oct/early Nov so TBA at the moment.  Must admit after last year's glitches I thought they would change it to a ballot this year!

Best wishes to the Abo runners, Jimbob, Ryan, Al P, Dan A, Tick Tock, Dr.Dave - hope the wind isn't too severe considering the 0mph winds we had at the York Mara last week! 

RS.. 5 mins is a decent lump to knock off last year's time, nice one! 

Marigold.. nice to see you dropping in, all the best for the ultra champs build up.

For those wishing to celebrity spot Marders or Race Jase, Channel 4 are showing Yorkshire Marathon highlights at 7am on Sunday, set your recorders!

Finally took the plunge & entered the Barcelona marathon in mid-March, means I'll have to crack on with it next month I suppose!  12m today to show willing.

Padams/Dan.. any recommendations for a Barca hotel handy for the start/finish area?  Thanks.

Marders.. I was on that sharp corner in the village but I fear my cries of 'slow down Marders it's supposed to be a training run' were drowned out by the adoring hordes of relay runners and bystanders nearby. Top work on the sub 2:19, though I'm equally impressed by your consumption of a banana at 5:20 pace, must try that on the treadmill sometime!  Nice double today BTW.

Bad luck on the ankle problems DanA & TT, swift recoveries to you both.

SL..really pleased to hear you can crack on, great news indeed.

Nicely done on taking Mr Bilton's scalp PRF.  All the best for Dublin, did that in the mid 90's & had a tour of the Guinness factory.  Don't tell Hannah though.

Nice PB at your age too!  My 69 year old club mate seemed happy enough with 3:18!

Well done indeed on the 5k PB Mr V.

Alehouse.. just wander around with the dog lead pretending that you've lost your dog.  You can then set up a registered charity!

Jase.. no problems fella - you did look 'in the zone' at that point.  Either that or you were peering through the fog to see where Marders was!  Well done on a massive PB at that level.

Great efforts at the GER Charlie & ON7, 31 secs is pipsqueak Charlie, live to fight another day.

Truly getting back to form Selbs, congrats on the sub 1:20, good work on rounding it up to 21m.  Very impressive time from Mrs Pub too.

RS..  nice improvement in position at the Fell race, hope that dislocation hasn't done any lasting damage.

Good work in the XC Jools, nice to see you higher up the leader board.

TR.. thanks for the info on CRAB, pity that & sorry to hear about your niggle.

I quite enjoyed spectating today, I thought as I arrived what ideal conditions they were for marathon running - 7-11 degrees & fog therefore no wind.  Visibility about 60m for the first couple of hours.  Great to see so many runners I know taking good advantage of it - my 69 year old club mate seemed happy enough with his 3:18 and there were PB's all over the place.

Suitably inspired I got out for 12m this afternoon by which time I needed sun glasses on!
