Afternoon one and all!

What: nothing!
Why: 10 mile race tomorrow. Not feelig very confident at the moment as I have to admit to having a tight right calf and a little niggle above the knee of the same leg. I will see how it feels tomorrow and hope that it's nothing to be concerned about.
I hope the weather stays like it's been today-cold, no wind and a little bit of sunshine.

Hmmmm...not an entirely successful attempt at a long run...

Attempted to do an approx 9 mile course which used to provide one of my "core" sessions when training for my only marathon 21 years ago. Some 25 mins into the run realised my guts were going to force me to find a loo somewhere before too long. Fortunately just made it to my parents' house (about 35 mins round the course).
Resumed after another 10 mins with gear now v damp with sweat, so took the shortest route home - was into the wind - yech! Also (as it always seems to at this time of year) the drop in temperature ensured I was full of snotty gunge. Glad to get home (53 mins actually running). Not a pleasant outing alas.

Gorgeous but cold. Seems to have gone from shorts & Tshirt to fleeces and coats in a week. Hope you don't have any more family traumas this weekend Road Runner.
Mike - the best laid plans...

What: 6 miles @ 1/2m pace (8 min miling, hurray)
Why: couldn't get out 'til after 6 and it was getting dark so ran fast to avoid spooking myself through the woods. Clocked 48mins for this loop, pleased with that, if I hadn't worn my day watch would never have known!
Crisis on the HRM front - can't find my HRM watch and feel totally lost without it. Last seen days ago being peeled off with various sweaty clothes in the bathroom. Serious house tidy required this weekend obviously.

Last hard: tonight
Last rest: yesterday
