Bravo & well toughed out SL & DanA, you both conveyed the pain of these events very well.

Good miles in the bank there PP! .. and you TT.

Well done on that sub 19 5k Jools, pretty good for a warm night.

Excellent miles early doors Muss, wise decision to do it in the relative cool.

Went for a run after work tonight and could hardly breathe!  Felt the pace pick up every time I hit a bit of shade but stifling work otherwise. 

Still struggling with a piriformis problem which I've been battling for 7 months now.  I've done all the stretches, core work, rolling about on a ball etc but it still won't shift.  I can still run but it is often like toothache in the right glute/hammy so I'm a bit fed up with it now.  Finally got hold of my favourite physio (ex England cricket physio) who suggested a cortisone injection into the area via my glute.  Can't get an appointment for 2-3 weeks (busy fellow) but hoping this might be light at the end of the tunnel.  I have enough tramadol to last until then so might as well keep going for now!

Hope that niggle proves to be short lived ES.

Nice cycling speed Padams!

Enjoy the Lakes Bains, good to see the recovery gaining momentum.

Great 5k's PP & Mrs PP, very impressed.

Went out for a steady run with Mrs Wardi after work & got a good wetting in a 10 minute deluge.  Park Run forecast tomorrow however says 17-18 degrees & sunny at 9am!

All the best to DanA & SL for the weekend, hope the conditions are kind.

So sorry Selbs, never an easy time for close family.

Congrats to Jools & CC2 on the weekend win/gongs and to Padams for the Park Run win.

Good cobweb clearance Jools, 5k pace always feels 'on the limit' for me so I would guess 3k makes the lungs burn a bit.  Are you going to murder those beers now?

Strong winds blowing all day up here so found some tree sheltered routes for a 4m+7.2m double.

Top effort in tough conditions CC82, enjoyed reading that.

Nice acquisition Charlie, you will have to let us know how you get on with it.  I'm still using a 310XT without problems - can't say the same about Garmin Express though.  Every couple of months it simply will not upload data from the 310XT even though it can 'see' it.  I have to delete the device from Express then add it in again to get it uploading again.  I just wish their software was less flaky.  Hope the half-mara goes well, sometimes low expectations can work wonders.

11.2m today in the afternoon warmth, nice to be able to wear a vest for a change!

Best of luck with your 10k race ES.  Looks like Saturday is the windy day so Sunday is the best day for racing.

Dachs.. sub 33, great effort in the wind.  You need to come up to the Abbey Dash again, never a windy day up here honestly.  Well run Jools too, still a good time post lurgy.

JAP.. good speed on the track & all the best for Wednesday.

Bains.. from little acorns grow etc.  Hope you can make progress from here.

Bufo.. cripes congrats on the sub 15 5k & the win.  Great speed!

Rest day yesterday which was opportune as the rain/wind last night was torrential and sideways.  Woke up today to note that the blue sky had re-emerged so couldn't resist an early 4m bimble.  7.5m later to complete the double.

Nice Park Runs PP & JAP.

Sorry to hear about the old fella Selbs but hope the trip goes well. 

DanA.. damn good effort there, beats my Barca training run!  Just to be pedantic and unless I'm very much mistaken - the girl that passed you was dressed in a cow hat and cow hide coloured leggings so I'm not sure that 'chicked' is the right expression.  I have managed to resist the temptation to descend into farmyard puns however

Like Millsy I can't understand the messianic fervour that surrounds VLM when there are equally good races elsewhere.

This year I did Barcelona for the first time.  It is half the size of VLM so less congested around a lovely course in a fabulous city.  First point - you enter online and you're in, no ballot or charities.  As an observation my wife was spectating and the nearest she saw to fancy dress was an orange wig.

The start, finish & Expo are all in the same place so as long as your hotel is within 1/2 mile from this area then everything is walking distance.  You can even catch an airport shuttle bus to/from this area.  Compare this to VLM where everything is spread out around the city so lots of travelling involved.  I have done and enjoyed London plenty of times but Barca was such a stress few experience I would rate it a notch up from London TBH.  Franfkurt in the autumn is similarly organised.

Good luck today Jimbob & Jools.  How did the champs go Charlie?

A modest 20:48 at the Park Run for me.  Still, about 50 secs quicker than last week so going in the right direction.  After a long lay off 5k distance it usually takes me about six races to get the required leg speed back!  Second highest turnout ever at York - 476, it was almost congested!

Another 5m easy later then ruined it all with beer & curry.
