Thanks :)

Solid would accurately describe the feeling in my legs going up the steep climb from miles 11-12!

Anyway, I'm now thinking that trying a 10-mile race for the first time would be fun. At the weekly mileage I can manage, I reckon I can do a comparatively better 10 than 13.1 (ie faster for my age and gender, more in line with what I can achieve over short distances). We'll see!

Well done OJ - and you have gone just above my Nemesis group ;-) I must do some training...

Now what you need is a 10K in the next two or three weeks, there's a PB there for the taking.

Oh really Dvorak? Sorry! Get training :p

You're right about the 10K. Last raced one of those in 2009. I wish there were actually a 10K I could get to in the next 2 or 3 weeks, but it doesn't look like it....

Hi OJ, see you got to that 10K in the end and a good mile. Well done on getting the HM PB down some more as well.

Got something to say?
