Hi all, great to see you all in here still and that there's some October plans afoot for some of us... I'm not ruling out a sub-3:30 attempt if everything went to plan but also not pinning my hopes on it yet...

Nelly, I hope that some bike miles will help with general fitness, recovery and resilience- ideally I plan to substitute some of the 'general' (junk?) miles with cross training including bike rides..

FF I hope you're off the bench before too long, what have you done?

I got PF in early February and pulled my groin a few weeks ago. Each is improving but not cleared up. I have not run since 7th February so will need to restart when the time comes.

Increased bike miles as part of my commute were a factor in my PB :-)

Hope the improvement continues, FF. Do you think one caused the other? Sometimes through compensating for one issue we end up creating something else... did I hear you're cycling instead? I'm sure that will help a lot with maintaining your general fitness and of course wellbeing.

It's possible Clare, I stopped cycling because it caused issues for the groin strain.
