    Yes, vegging out also now. Will definitely watch that, thanks.

    Glad it felt better this week. Still too hot though. Mrs Fix tried her first one after a month of with piriformis woes. Alas, still unable to finish, but encouraging. Fix Jnr was hoping to improve on his PB from Hove last week. Not got the legs this time, but I’m really impressed with his consistency and happy it’s a pleasure for him rather than a chore.

    I’m chuffed with my first sub-18. Haven’t had official confirmation yet, but watch says about 30s off previous best. Wondering if I’ve made the 80% club…

    See you there soon. Don’t forget it’s cancelled next week.

    Congrats to @5awyr and @rhb on the PBs.

    Most of my injuries have responded well to quite aggressive manipulation. Search for transverse friction massage. You can literally feel the rogue tissue breaking down while you do it. Helps break through rehab plateaux.

    Glad you enjoyed it. They were short of a barcode scanner, and asked me to do it once I’d finished. Fourth over the line, then on with the hi-viz layer to stand in the sun for 25 minutes trying not to fuck things up with my sweaty hands.

    The tree cover’s helpful round the course, but I’m starting to long for a crisp autumn morning. Freak temperatures fucked up my marathon attempt, and I’m still bitter about that.

    That's a coincidence. I saw forum OG @hippy picking up crack (-pipe adapter) near Euston. Well shady.

    I was in two minds about how to approach parkrun on Saturday, a week or so before a marathon, so when a last minute shout for a tail-walker appeared, I went for it. Mellow at the back once the thundering, panting masses have done their five laps. The next two weeks are volunteering as well (bookending marathon), which will give me a 10:1 run/volunteer ratio. Feels reasonable.

    My son went past a few times on Saturday looking upbeat and bagging a pb in the process. Think he's got his sights set on a couple of fast JM11-14s slightly ahead of him. Hope his motivation persists throughout the summer at least.

    I did my last 'long' run on Sunday, a 15k out-and-back that was supposed to be steady first half and ~MP second half. Kept putting the brakes on during the outward leg. Satisfaction at fitness level was hubris, something I realised as I reached the turn and was then blasted by the northerly wind. Managed to hold the right pace, but not so much effortless floating.
