I am missing the whole training for marathon vibe so will need something else to aim at.
I am, apparently, part of a team doing the Adidas TR24 thing in July so I suppose that needs some attention.
Usual club run last night featured about 6 of us hardcore members. I managed to "whizz" around only to return to the car which had a flat battery. Luckily 3 of the guys were still there to give me a push (just what they wanted!)
Will fit in one or two more little trots this year just to reach my target of 1000 miles for the year (no great shakes amongst some circles I know) then FOCUS on 2013 as my year for a potential PB-Fest!
Just bought two new pairs of shoes - one road, one trail. Just wondering whether to christen the trail ones tomorrow. Am doing the first part of a 15 miler with club friends. It's 8 miles xc to the first pub then they're pub crawling back to the start. Think I'll get J or AR to pick me up at whatever's closest to 10 miles. I could managed 15 miles but then wouldn't be able to move for a week...
Am starting marathon training in the worst shape! Right ankle still aching after running, right knee still moaning and left back still twingeing first thing in the morning. What a wreck. Am off to stretch...
BTW that blatent link to Adidas wasn't intentional - just happened (godamn marketeers)
FRC - yes, I think so - race every second or third parkrun. It becomes a moot point shortly anyway as I return to Saturday morning tutoring when the schools go back.
My knee pain has reduced greatly to the point of only having a momentary sensation on Thursday which was in fact with Ikle and Basey's son (I think that's the correct online nomenclature) in Dulwich park. 10k in 50 minutes for me. Friday "today" 8k in 38 minutes, no knee issues whatsoever.
DTF 1000 miles in a year is certainly great shakes in my circle. Just falling short of 500 myself this year as I also did in 2008; those being my highest year totals. Aiming for at least 750 next year.
By the way, the sooner we go metric for everything the better. 100 seconds in a minute, 100 seconds in an hour ... Oh, yes and 100 years in a lifetime as standard
GWS Ikle. Bummer about TRS but you are a brave soldier for getting there in the first place!
Did 10 hilly miles with some club mates today in the rain. And stopped at pubs along the way...
