Al P.. another cracking marathon & well done on 4th place.  Hope you get to join the sub 2:30 club one day soon.  Nice to hear Dr Dave is still about. 

Piscator.. very nicely judged & safely under 3hrs in the end, nice one.

GBRM.. that must have felt good!  Congrats on cracking the 3hr barrier for the first time. 

LS21.. I guess you deserve two 'reasonables' for those two marathons in 4 weeks.

Jooligan.. I've always thought that one has to be fully healthy & stress free when lining up for a marathon.  You were very unlucky with the timing of the virus so don't be too downbeat.

Dan A.. nicely executed negative split there!  What's the target in Valencia, another 2:44 possibly

Nice work in the XC races Padams & Alan B.

The limit is set by the police so not a lot the club can do about it apart from asking politely.  if I remember rightly it has been gradually lifted from 1000 to 1750 over the last 10 years or so.

All the best at Abo from me too Al P, Piscator, Dan A.

You're not having much luck with race entries lately LMH   Bit of a trek but there is the East Hull 20 up here, usually mid March and very flat.

Managed to get into the Brass Monkey around 6.20am, twiddling my thumbs after that so went for an early run.  Sounds like Charlie, LS21 & Njord are all safely in so a thread day out is brewing.

You must like York PT!  Yes I got in ok after 801 places in the queue.  Course is flat as a pancake apart from one small railway bridge at 1m & 11m.

That is actually a promotion LMH.  The front of red is 'Fast Good For Age' and has it's own assembly area.  I believe it's for runners who have qualified by running sub 3:10 or quicker.  I ran off there a few times in my pomp.  You start in pen 1 and don't have any celebrities to negotiate!

Sorry to hear the knee is still niggling BTW.

Good confidence booster in the rain Dan, hope Abo the pacing is trouble free next week.

Nice to see you in double figure runs again CC2, what's the next big race?

TT.. well battled in the XC, decent position too.  Good to see you back into decent mileage again.

Marathon recovery week has been 0, 0, 5, 5, 4, 0, 5 and the legs feel ok.

Reasonable effort son.  Pity it was the junior Park Run

Charlie.. if you decide to enter the York BM, register with Results Base beforehand to save time on the day.  When you log on you will be told you are in a queue and you are No.67 or whatever (this counts down).   Just wait until it's your turn then it is usually straightforward.  It fills up in 1-2 hours so don't sleep in!

AlanB.. there were mile markers every 5m at Frankfurt which has been the case at all the Euro marathons I have done.  Just remember to practice your John Travolta moves in readiness for the disco finish

RyanS.. kudos for toughing out the XC during your 'rest' week.

Alehouse.. just seen your post sorry.  PRF ran the 10 miler & Hannah ran a tempo stylee 3.12.  A modest 3.36 for me which was a bit down on target, but I always seem to run circa 5 mins quicker in the spring marathons so I'll take it.  Nice event York, actually enjoyed it in perfect conditions.  Looking at Rotterdam in April for the next one.

All the best for Abo Dr Dan, at least I've given you a soft target.

Charlie.. don't know if you noticed amongst the vet results from York but a W55 from Dewsbury ran 2:56.14 which is a national record apparently!  Another 5m steady today BTW which does appear to be easing the stiffness.  Oh, and highlights of the York Marathon on C4 Saturday 06.40am.

Coro.. good to see you popping in & good luck to you & junior at the XC.

SL.. great training there, must be lots of hay in your barn!

Good session TT!

As Marmite has been in the news lately it reminded me of erstwhile poster Marmite Master.  Haven't heard from him for a couple years and his PO10 profile is like the Marie Celeste since early 2014.
