Like the varied use of the Bubkaesque terminology, much more than 'podiummed' and suchlike.

Very much a golden year Jools, many congrats.  I guess you should be sub 30 for 5m on current form.  Agree about the 5k/500m/Park Run - AW list all those separately for world/UK year bests so what's good for the goose etc.  BTW York & Hull are the flattest Park Runs up north if you're ever visiting - come to York if you like a historical city, Hull if you prefer the seaside.

12m today with 7 x 1k @ slightly quicker than 5k pace in the middle (500m recoveries).  That lot blew a few cobwebs away but pleased to get it done.

Bad luck Charlie, don't be trying any self surgery on the quads now!

TR.. nice thinking - you can only beat who doesn't turn up!

Belated congrats on the win Dr Dave

Many happy returns TJB, cripes is it still raining down thereDecent MLR in the bank on a wet day.

Cold but dry and calm up here, managed a 4.2m + 7.8m double today with gloves on.

Good work getting out in the rain Charlie, TR, Jools, CC2, & nice racing CD

Solid 20m there Jimbob, when's your next marathon?

Good to see you making progress SJ.

Heavy rain overnight Fri/Sat which thankfully cleared for the Park Run but quite a bit of mud & standing water on the course.  Made it a mini-double with 4.2m later.

By the look of it I ought to apologise for reporting a bright sunny day here in North Yorks.  Lovely clear views & no wind so lots of cyclists out & about.  Took advantage to log a 15.3m run around the country lanes which gives me 58m for the week. 

Beer & curry later to redress the calorie imbalance.

TR.. good to see you getting more daily consistency in.  BTW I did manage one of the sessions from your marathon training session list - a standard MLR @ 12.5m today.

Also cured a badly blurred console on the treadie today.  Figured out it was probably water/sweat ingress so have opened up the control panel & turned the heating on in that room!  Much clearer already.

Good to see the Berlin hopefuls getting in ok.

Banksy.. VLM has a lot of tall buildings plus a tunnel or two which tend to muck up the accuracy - GPS units usually measure it long.  Some folks have taken to turning off the auto lap on their Garmin at VLM and using it like stop watch to avoid confusion.

By contrast the York marathon is mostly estates, countryside & main roads once you have done the loop around York at the start (no building in York is allowed to be taller than York Minster so no chance of any skyscrapers!).  Hence a more accurate reading.

Good miles (or indeed k's!) Alehouse.  Quite enjoyed my 8m after work in shorts & t-shirt.

Lev.. some well earned endorphins in the water!  Bet that NY cheesecake was good though. 

PP.. hope that bug shifts for you soonest.

KD.. sorry to hear about the DQ.

ES.. after your injury/operation woes that's a very respectable comeback, nice one.

Banksy.. good effort and worth trying lower long runs but I don't know many who have succeeded with it.  Any video clips of your final few yards?? 

LS21.. a nifty 5k there, good miles too.  BTW you do remember correctly; the smoking jacket is indeed Barcelona bound come March!

To that end 4.2m + 8.3m today.  Nice run tonight in t-shirt & shorts, all the other runners I saw seemed to be dressed for the arctic!

Great stuff at Gosport Tick Tock & TR!

Jools.. congrats on the fine sub 38 breakthrough at Leeds, great racing on a recent cakes & beer prep!

Toro.. well done indeed on an unexpected 35+, even if you were puffing like a steam train at the end!

Delighted to see some of you have to travel up North to get a PB! 

Got back off hols last Sunday to realise this was week 1 of my March Marathon schedule.  11m midweek & 15.5m today which included a 5m club xc in the middle.  58m for the week which is an encouraging start.

PP.. I've paid up for the Barca marathon in mid March so my spring marathon will be done & dusted by VLM time.  However... a few club mates are running VLM and I'm always up for a jolly down in the big smoke so hopefully see you there.
