Well dones to ES & Padams, good racing in warm conditions.

Hope all the problems/interruptions disappear now Jools, is 12 weeks your usual marathon build up?

Park Run + 5m yesterday.  Wish I had LMH's self discipline to get up early, today's 10am start turned out to be a warm & humid 13.2 miles.  Pleased to get it done!

Good efforts in the heat everyone.  My contribution on Tuesday started with a 20m bike ride to a local 10k handicap race at the end of our summer season.  About 200 runners set off in order of speed slow to fast so you try and catch as many as possible.  Bliddy hard work in a sweltering 28 degrees but just about held my own in overtaking/being overtaken.  Took me about 45 mins to stop sweating after the race!

This summer series consists of 6 x 10k races plus the handicap at the end with a pie & peas supper thrown in after the last event - all for a tenner.

TT.. my bike frame is titanium and it does seem a bit kinder to my old bones when going over bumps.

Didn't realise you were a V50 now CD, congrats on the prize.  Hope your tremors are over for the foreseeable.

Great mileage LMH!

RB.. get well soon, gout sounds nasty!

LS21.. nice session there, hope you can sort both those Achilles out soonest.  Pleased you got a proper diagnosis of your liver.  Never heard of Gilbert's syndrome before, I guess that means you will be doing most of your forthcoming runs alone again, naturally. (I'll get me coat). 

Being the oldest coffin dodger on here I took some relief seeing that picture of Padams needing dentures a couple of pages back.  Too many sherbet dips and Haribos when you were younger I'd wager.

Park Run in 20.41 yesterday which was ok in warm & breezy conditions, 5.5m later.

11.5m early today before the temps rose too much.

Good to see the thread come back to life after a sleepy day yesterday.  I thought at the very least Charlie would pop in having run 26 miles in a duffle coat or similar.

Very impressive 3k if you weren't 100% PP, nice one.  Decent 18m today too!

TT.. great to see you can run again, that should gradually get rid of your beefcake status

I ran to work this morning to retrieve my bike which was left there on Friday due to a social function.  13.3m run which was hot & humid, 15m ride back where I was almost grateful for a cooling headwind!

RB.. don't reckon much to your bouncers if both LS21 and Njord managed to gatecrash your wedding (disguised as Scotsmen too!).  No matter, my good wishes for a happy future to you and the bride.

Swift recovery TT, blimey you've been struggling with that for a while!  Avoiding the scales is probably wise

Hope you smoke it Jools and the calf behaves.

AlanB.. I stayed at the Hotel Messe (on Westendstrasse) which is only 5 mins walk from the start area.  From memory the u-bahn is only about 3 stops away from the main sights/eateries (not much in the way of restaurants in the start/finish area).  Prepare yourself for the 200m indoor disco lights/tickertape/dancing girls in crop tops finish - quite a heady experience at the end of a marathon!

Fantastic SL, epic report and great to see an authentic furrowed brow.

Epic Dan, very proud of you given the distance, hills, conditions etc.  Pity you had to bail out with most of the race done but you live to fight another day.  A cool sunny day in Barca seems to suit you best

Well done on the stage win and bubbly Jools!

Charlie.. if you hadn't already checked the results from last year's York Marathon - the 1st V45 from Leeds City did 2:34 then there were a couple on 2:42.  Perhaps a reasonable chance of the race podium for you then!

Jools.. encouraging to see you getting some decent summer results after the VLM disappointment.  Sorry to hear about impending break up with Mr; all part of life's tapestry I suppose but that doesn't make it any easier. 

My best wishes to Dan A & SL. hope you both have stormers.

LS21.. worth getting iron levels checked, breathlessness, leg tiredness & poor race times are symptoms Mrs Wardi had when she was diagnosed a couple of years back.

PP.. good session that; & congrats to MrsP!

Running pretty much every day at present though proper marathon training (for York Mara) starts next month.

Yes pretty flat apart from a couple of railway bridges .  All on closed roads and very well organised, plenty of parking as the HQ + start/finish are on an aerodrome.

Well raced for the win Padams, decent margin of victory too.  I hear rumours of another thread win so a good weekend all in all!

Hope it went well LMH.
