Cartman - solid run and great report. Sounds like you couldn't have gone any quicker on the day. I also remember finding the downhills very painful at Boston and was actually looking forward to the uphills after a while!
OO - sounds like you had a good race. It doesn't really make me want to do Paris though, with the wave setting off ahead of you and randoms being on the course at various points.
Hope you're all ready for Sunday and looking forward to reaping the rewards for your months of hard work. At least it won't be as warm as last weekend!
Had a really nice long weekend with some training but not a huge amount. 10k pacer on Friday - finished in 39:46, so about perfect for a "sub-40" in my opinion, and the km splits were all 4:00 +/- 5 secs (very gradually downhill out and uphill back which caused most of the variation).
Then 11M on Sunday morning at around 6:50s, and 6.5M easy on Monday morning. Monday afternoon I spent a while sorting my bike out and then did 5M on it just to check it still worked and I didn't need to attach some stabilisers!
Al P - Should have come over to King's Park to run with me and McTaggart! (we managed 16.12 & 16.21) Which beach were you on? The folks beach hut is on Branksome Dene chine. Shame the water was too cold to go in..I'll look out for you Sunday, i'll be at 8-9 before the right hand turn at Wetherspoons Surrey quays.
Good luck everyone else, i'll be at the Red Lion at some point (although I think I only know AL and CW by sight..)
Al_P - I drove down from Hertfordshire to Poole on Saturday morning (left at 7:30am) and traffic was fine, so you probably would have been OK.
SC2 - I ran the stretch from Sandbanks to Branksome Dene Chine on Sunday morning (and around Poole Park), so would have run past your beach hut. Doubt you were there that early in the morning though. My mum lives about 0.5M from Branksome Chine.
Weather's looking good for Sunday so you lot won't have any excuses!
10.5M for me last night inc. the club track session. Our new house is a bit further from the track (just over 2M) which adds a bit of mileage, but the uphill run home wasn't much fun, especially as I hadn't been on the track for a couple of months. My hip was also feeling quite ropey, but not so bad today.
