    Fantastic scenes. Great battling from both of you.
    Was a good battle. Ninja went off quickly and had a 20 metre lead for the first 1.5 miles. It was parity between 1.5-2.5 as I sat on the shoulder. Went past with around half a mile to go and dared not look back. Had one glance into the home straight but I must have pulled ahead.

    Sets up Wednesday nicely, as always won’t be too much in it.

      The Emil Zatopek book works well for that extra mental boost. Enjoy the semi final boys!

      Too quickly for me, 3:30 dead for the first KM according to Strava. I shouldn't have gone off that quickly, I will be wary of doing that on wednesday night. My primary tactic is to sit in with the big fella and let him do the pacing, I'm not in a position to strike a PB at the moment - so I may not be in a position to challenge @big nuts but we'll see. If I'm to be beaten, you're going to have to earn it.

      @The Complete Badger - are you in for the Phoenix followed by the Brunswick?!

      3:30 is really quick considering you run the biggest hill in the first K.

      It was too much in the circumstances. The cycle, the heat, the hill and the 4 further KMs to tackle all worked against me.

      I mentioned I'd done a 2 hour cardio session the day before - I'd done 30 minutes on a Wattbike, 45 minutes on an eliptical machine and then an hour on the treadmill (steady pace with a couple of sprints but no more). I wasn't planning on attacking a parkrun the following morning because I've not been in a position to fully train but I felt like I wanted to give it my all and see where I was.

      On tuesday I am going to sit down with my friend Rob to come up with a marathon training plan for Bournemouth. I'm not happy with my marathon PB so I'm going to be really thinking about what I've done wrong previously and how to overcome it and post a time I'm proud of. I think I'm proud of my other PBs, but not the marathon.

      Not exactly running I know, but successfully completed the Three Peaks Challenge this weekend. Don’t get near to the fabled 24 hours, just under 29, but I don’t think you can achieve this unless you have a support crew to minimise breaks between the peaks or you are a full on Fell Runner.
      It was pretty tough - comparable to a hard marathon in terms of physical effort I’d say and I’m pretty shattered now but mainly through lack of sleep.
      What we did get was incredible luck with the weather - sunny, not too hot as we were walking early morning or evenings and utterly amazing clear views at the tops of Ben Nevis, Scan Fell Pike and Snowdon.

      Got to say I think I am a doubt for Phoenix now, don’t suppose there’ll be any thing decent on the telly on Wednesday instrad.

      @Herr Tubthumper has had his unbekannt recognised by the table administrator. 19:03 and 76.8%. No movement up the table but he snatches my Age Grade silver position by 0.01%. I'll be chasing that down after my birthday in October but expect he'll improve his 5K when the marathon is out the way

      I use the marathon training plans from Runners World (.co.uk, not the US website). I can’t recommend them enough. They have lots of options for time and number of days per week you can commit etc; something for everyone. As you’re looking at a PB around the 3 hour mark, I presume, you’ll be looking at 6 or 7 day plans though. They have been around for years and are tried and tested when it comes to the balance of speed, endurance, recovery and rest. The recovery and rest elements should not be overlooked; I’ve been a bit stupid in the past and when I have missed a day I have doubled up instead of just forgetting about it and moving on; the plans actually recommend dropping a week day endurance run but keeping speed work if you can’t fit all the weeks training in. Every time I’ve stuck to the plan, and met all the daily targets etc, I’ve come in on time or quicker. The marathon plans are 16 weeks and you need to ensure you have the specified entry level of fitness before starting.

      And good luck.

      I have used one of those previously and it was very good - I will be consulting with their plans and then working out with my mate what we reckon. He's a guy with all sorts of running experience, including winning Hove Park parkrun in 16:02 (once, only once!). He knows a lot about training and conditioning and his training plan got me my 18:23 parkrun PB. One of the key things I need to consider is behaviour on the day - and preventing the usual early blow out. We'll see what happens and I'm sure there will be the occasional post!

      It will be interesting to see what you guys come up with.

      And those ParkRun times are insanely good.
