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!

Top effort CD!  Still a good 5k from PP as well on tired legs.

Congrats on completing that long run SL & happy birthday to your training partner!

RS78.. best of luck for next weekend.

Charlie.. nicely done on the 18 miler particularly with all those hills.

ON7.. cracking half & well done on the top 10 finish.

CC2.. I'm with you on the free t-shirt, I currently stand tantalisingly at 49 Park Runs!

Hard day yesterday - supping champagne on a kerbside in Ilkley watching the TDF.  Amazing crowds & atmosphere everywhere.  I cycled up to the end of a quiet narrow country lane which joins the route today and found about 2 miles of parked cars on grass verges & about 2,000 people on the roadside.  There was a gentle descent here and the speed those guys came past was astonishing.  Some cracking photos from both days here..

https://www.facebook.com/LeTourYorkshire.  The Leeds to Harrogate pics down the page are particularly impressive.

I managed to twist my foot in a shallow pothole in the mile race last Thursday which has made my Achilles a bit sore.  Decided to take a few days off as a precaution but as cycling is ok topped up today's journey to 40m.

Nice effort & position on that sort of course Charlie

PP.. storming lunchtime effort, best of luck at the Park Run.

Good miles in the bank Jools & all the best for the league match.

Padams.. fine pacing in the 10k & great work on the bike again.

Selbs.. hope you are properly ( well, nearly properly) mended this time.  All the best for the Frankfurt build up. 

My club's annual 1 mile race tonight.  3m gentle warm up, close & muggy.  Managed 5:42 which is the same time as last year - better to stagnate than deteriorate at my age I reckon.  Spent the next hour coughing with sore lungs which presumably means I put in the requisite amount of effort!

TR.. all the best for Sunday & well done to your young lad.

SL.. getting blathered the night before a 20m run shows a lack of application, damn poor show.

CB.. sorry to hear that.  I had a bad 5k a couple of weeks ago due to over-racing as previously described but the next outing was much better.  Also, don't underestimate how below par health has on running - any stress or bug related stuff can have a detrimental effect.  Better luck next time - the best thing about 5k's is that you can do another one pretty soon after a bad one!

Alehouse.. good to see you racing again.

DT19, AndrewD.. best of luck sorting out your niggles.

Dr.Dan.. good decision on biking to work, hope you made it home.

Good session Mr V!

Club mile race went well, muggy but calm.  5:42 was the same as last year so be it consolidation or stagnation I'm happy to take it!
