Well done Andrew on your new 10k PB,and considering you've had a virus that's great running.
Nell,I except your challenge!
That's a monster climb Hobie,do you walk in any of that climb?I have a couple of local hill races in the summer but not on that scale.
6.04 - 5

YTD - 454.84 miles
Firstly the good stuff - congrats to you Harmander for your award which I'm sure is richly deserved!
Next the commiserations - sorry to hear that things didn't go to plan Nell. There is always next time and you will have learnt a lot from the experience.
Finally, thank you for the pb congrats. As Nell has pointed out, I do wish I could have found 3 seconds somewhere on the course to get below 43, but I'm generally very happy. Am considering another 10k in a few weeks to have a stab at sub 43.
No running yet this week for me, so still 270 YTD.
Nell, tough not making the GFA, but still a great time, well done...I'm chasing you again now :-)
JD1, Yup....I walk quite a lot...reckon I'm almost as quick walking hard up steep bits as I can run...I've never run all the way in a marathon or Ultra yet but I've only done Snowdonia (3:55) and the rest are trails, so all bonkers hilly ones.
Sorry to hear about your woes Stephen,think I'd put running on the backburner and just concentrate on getting better.
Nell I'm sure you'll PB in a mara sooner than later,especially after your PB in the HM,which will set you up for a decent crack at it.I think that going off too fast in my first mara will be my downfall,will have to be more disciplined time wise. Congrats on passing 400.
10.04 - 8.16

Club run last night, did nearly 8 miles at a decent pace & felt really good for the first time in a while (probably since I gave blood last month, so hopefully all will be well by the time of my Ultra.
Chatting to one of the boys in club last night who did Manchester in 3:14 he wasn't happy as he said he went off too fast and slowed towards the finish...didn't get a lot of sympathy with a finish time like that.
Donnie, well done on the 300 & Harmander, awesome work on being over half way to 1500 already.
397 miles YTD....will pass 400 sometime today
Stephen - hope the further tests give you some answers and a route back to full health and fitness soon!
5 miles for me last night. Legs felt quite achey, but hopefully that has got that out of the way and they will start to feel better from tonight!
I am aiming for a pb attempt in a parkrun next Saturday - my 5k pb has been the same for a long time and really needs to be updated!
Well done Donnie on passing 300 and good luck in the Sheffield HM,hope you have a good one.
Hobie you've given me an idea for trying the Snowdonia marathon next year........thank you!! and well done in passing 400 as well.
Good luck in your PB attempt Andrew,I'm sure you'll do it.
Harmander that's a monster mileage you're racking up,no doubt you'll be over 800 by the end of the weekend.
Muppet is my middle name Nell.I still think I'm 27 and not 47 and go darting off too fast.Hope you feel better soon.
Good luck to anyone else racing this weekend.
As for me I have the Tatton 10k on Sunday.
11.04 - 5.06
YTD - 468.06 miles
Thanks Nell - parkrun isn't until next Saturday though, not tomorrow. But I hope your faith in me is justified.
Annoyingly, the official results from Sunday show my chip time as 43.00, so I was even closer to sub43 than I originally thought!
3.5 miles last night - 278.5 YTD
