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..

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.
