I once did 22.4m on my treadmill though in my defence it was snowing sideways outside and icy underfoot. Two FA Cup ties on the TV one after the other kept me engrossed.

LS21.. typical tight Yorkshireman.  You can buy Gary Glitter's old computer at a bargain price on ebay apparently.  Hard drive optional.

Great effort at Beachy Selbs, good to hear you're still in one piece.

Top pacing that JAP, mile 25 looks like you knew the post race bar was looming!

Best I can offer is an anagram of my town - castrated.

Don't do it Dan A, the gods of London town rarely smile upon you.

Nice reps PP, you didn't do all those 5:2.. reps to wind up the Everton fans did you?

CC2.. we have 3 people on here with post-marathon legs and about 50% of the thread seem to be benched.  Stick around and we call all be grumpy together!

Hello again Dull and thanks for the fellow coffin dodger's compliment.  My last 6-8 weeks before Barca resembled a 5k schedule due to niggles so I was pleased enough with the end result.  I'm entered into the local York marathon in October so hopefully I can put in a proper schedule if the body holds together.  Heartening news about Mrs Dull, long may she run in every respect.  Looks like the binlids are in decent seats of learning too.

PP.. nice interview in AW last week with Chris Greenwood, I presume he is a speedy V40 clubmate of yours. 

Great mileage SL, good to hear of the odd death march to prove you get tired occasionally! 

Dachs.. no crème eggs for you getting Easter race dates wrong!

Good sessions Jools, Padams, LukeS, Banksy, PP, SJ, Charlie.

That's a decent day of training TR, I reckon 'wombly world of training on my jack' could enter the thread phrase book.

Luke.. if you click on the chap in position 51 (JAP) here it will give you his 5k splits..  http://zurichmaratobarcelona.com/resultados/ZMB_resultados-en.html1

DanA.. I was going to suggest that the Barcelona Marathon logistics make for a stress free weekend, unless of course you are running within 23 seconds of your target pace!

Good to see you popping in Marders, best of luck with the hamstring/glute niggles (FWIW mine are much better after 3 weeks of daily stretching).  Also fingers crossed for the podium in Manchester.

Legs feel surprisingly ok today so will go for a steady run with the club shortly.

Epic stuff DanA, just snooped on your race video and the effort is positively oozing out of you near the finish.  T'was a pleasure to share in the post-race celebrations with you & JAP and to meet Mrs DanA too.

We did touch briefly on marathon logistics.  Barca has the start and finish in exactly the same place, and the Expo in the building next door.  Book a hotel within half a mile of this (there are plenty) and Bob's your Uncle.  I strolled up to the start 30 mins before the start with an old shirt to keep warm.  After the race drink & eat what's on offer, collect medal then walk back to hotel for a hose down.  Proceed to bar.  Nice course too so highly recommended.  Contrast with VLM where everything seems to be spread out as far as possible!

Aye, legs feel surprisingly good today.  Wore Charlie's favourite Nike Lunar Racers for the race and feet are fine too, no bloody toenails or blisters.

Funnily enough we were discussing Crab's inevitable ranking of Dan's barrier breaking feat. We await with trembling anticipation.

Nice one Jimbob!

Charlie.. I was half expecting a DNF so pleased to get round. Wine on the menu shortly so I should be slightly more chilled out later.

3.30.57 for me so better than expected after threatening to withdraw 2 weeks ago!

Nice PB KK & congratulations on the sub 4 Apache.
