      Woah... looking at those miles I feel like a very inadequate runner! Sorry to hear about the troubles - amazing that you soldiered on and managed to do another 7 miles despite the pain. Hope it hasn't caused any lasting damage. With your running expertise you couldn't be in better hands!:-)

      Almost there. I'll have enjoy it from the comfort of my sofa:-) If I enter the ballot every year for the next 50 I'm sure I'll run it one of these days. Good luck with the rest of your training. You've done the really hard work and now it's all about the finishing touches.

    That is called negative progress. Age is taking its toll. It looks like I am loosing 20 sec per mile every year

      Here's the thing though, you are still putting in miles which is positive progress!

      To be fair, though, you were using this as a marathon training run this year, which you executed perfectly!

      I agree with Kerry - Your runs right now are focused on distance and endurance rather than speed. I lost speed when I was training for the Yorkshire marathon. You'll be able to get it back after London!

      Great half mara Brian! Always great when you seem to be the strongest runner in the field of runners. I just hope you didn't shame them too much:-) A successful half mara training run on your journey to the big one in London! Well done!

    Just a short one today as I am doing a Half M on Sunday. Running it just as a Marathon dummy run rather than a race.

    Someone had the cheek to set a better time than mine in the Plank challenge at the Gym so! see your 7 min 30 sec and raise it to 8 min 1sec. Not that I am in any way a competitive person.

      Im not sure there is any way that you can run 20 miles without it being hard work but your certainly putting my workouts in the shade with that sort of milage. Your doing so well keeping these long distance runs going. Great running Brian!

      Haha. A long run by most people's standard. I remember training for my marathons and being relieved when I had a 'short' run like this. Great run. 👍
