Blimey no wonder I struggled today... Just went into my Fetch... last training was the Cancer Care 5k 6th April when I started to get ill... then wasn't 100% and also very busy with FLM/Mudchute preparations... Then got really ill after Mudchute...
That's 3 whole weeks with no training whatsoever...
Right i'm off to conquer the Holton Road Hill

I expect it's more the illness rather than the lack of training Nam. You've still been swimming and stuff so your fitness wouldnt have gone really downhill
No I mean I did NOTHING since 7th of April til yesterday... Nada... not even a swim!!
Oh well... we've established now that chest infection, antibiotics, period and 3 weeks no training does not make for a good race... LOL
Dont listen PJ - she is just being cruel! (she was cruel tonight too....I am going back to my "boycott until the words "speed" and "work" are not to be heard.....I was sooo slow I was miles behind by the time everyone got to the field!)Maybe once I can walk again I should run up the hill outside my house
Im up for it Possibly doing the FE 1m before then, so will have some idea how slowly I can do 1mile. GOPS yesterday reckons fastest mile was 10.09 at mile 5, but that was downhill Hope by then could do sub-10 anyway, I guess. Maybe. Shouldnt make claims like that. Could all go wrong. Very very very wrong!!Should be doing the 2m, after that not sure as the 3m is right before exams, so will depend how I am doing whether I do or not
your making this hill sound like the everest to me! is it really that bad??
