4x1200m tonight for me, a good few seconds faster than the same session before Chester. Perfect weather, got nice and cool by 8pm.

Also the first time I've covered 5k in a training run in under 20 mins.

Now back to important VLM talk...

Anybody who thinks that they can achieve their best marathon time when the temperature is 25 compared to 15 celsius is deluded.

I ran a then pb of 3:03 in Edinburgh 2009 when it was about 24. Forecast now is for 19/20. Yes it’s harder but not impossible.

There seems to be a lot of peculiar information around about Sundays weather. From what I can see the temps are unlikely to break 19 Deg C and they'll be a cooling breeze. Not perfect, but not exactly "hot".
