Managed to shave my pb down to 23.27 for 5K at Parkrun yesterday. Was a real struggle though, one of those horrible runs where you feel it from the off.

Nice one Paul.

Cheers, I do hate those runs where you feel rubbish from the off. Any tips on how to avoid that? Or is it just something that happens sometimes.

I reckon it is just something that happens....did something in particular put you off? If you hit a PB at an organised race you're pretty focused though. If there are more than a few people running where I run I freak out....

Well it was pretty clustered at the beginning and a woman stopped right in front of me! I know what you mean I get that nervous feeling the seconds before a race starts!

I certainly do, it's hard not to let the adrenaline take over and you end up going off too fast etc etc. I've done that a few times on Triathlons and the way I counteract it is by visualising my start and what I want to feel like. It's probably all cod psychology bollocks but it seems to work for me.

Ran 11km on last two runs and my knee seems to be holding up well. Think I'll stick with this distance for the time being.

Once it cools off I'll see about adding a bit more distance. Yesterday it was 26C and 86% humidity when we finished at around 0900.

I finished 301st in the very well organised Outlaw Ironman in Nottingham yesterday.  I had the 39th best marathon split in 3hrs 32mins. Feeling my age today but I will target the Mablethorpe Marathon next hoping for a time between 2hrs 50/55 mins.

I might do this next year, it's pan flat isn't it?  PB for the Ironman distance has to be on the cards and it's cheaper to get to & enter than Ironman Florida.

The bike course is pretty fast. Undulating with only one short sharp 12% hill. I'd thoroughly recommended it as very accessible and good value for money. It cost less than 300 quid and I ate about 50 quid worth of Jaffa cakes.

Ran 11km last Wednesday, 11km Saturday and scheduled to run 11km on Tuesday.

Hoping to draw a line under last year's knee problems ....so far so good.

No knee problems here but starting to get the first real pain from shin splints.  Had a few 100+ mile months and this month won't be any different but at least I start to taper to Ironman Cascais toward the end of the month so hopefully a bit of repair and healing can take place.

Missed an Ironman 70.3 World Championship slot because I didn't go to the Sunday evening award ceremony after Ironman Cascais thinking that the top 2 finishers would take their places, they didn't, it rolled down and I wasn't there to claim my place in South Africa next September. Lesson learned, if you finish anywhere in the top 20 in your age group, turn up, my mate Andy is at the Worlds this weekend, he qualified with a 17th place in his age group.

Slightly miffed but had a great race after a difficult swim in choppy windy conditions and my shins held out until the last 4km when I was fighting back the tears of pain.
