Well didn't suffer too much doing two races in a morning.
Keswick Parkrun 27:48 with several ups and downs which were telling me my hamstrings are not recovered yet.
Then Isel Cross 5.5 miles with 3 on road then a track for a mile with the later 1/3rd or so up hill more than the slight bit to start with. Then the rest is downhill over fields with a bit on road at the end. 52:14 for that a couple mins of course best but legs were aching and knackered unlike me. Oddly Garmin claims 7:45 pace for the last 0.4 it measured as the average and i wasn't even going flat out or on the steeper downhill bit.
8.7 miles for me yesterday, on an undulating course. Day off today, went to watch Maidstone United play in my old home town. My 12 year old son and I have season tickets.
Early start for a 16 miler tomorrow and then family lunch at my Dad's. Hoping to watch some of the football on Sky too.
I am hoping to run Dartmoor Discovery next year, as I owe it big time.
Iain - hope the knee was Ok for your run
Keith - that's tough, 2 short races, you did well
Moore - have a good long run today, you'll have earned your lunch
Shade - The knee had settled down but i am ever so conscious of it that i am almost finding an excuse not to run and i dont like it. Really struggling with motivation the past few days despite the fact my race is 5 weeks away..would it be wise to try squeeze in a couple of long runs in 15+ milers. or should i just maintain my fitness and shorter runs!!
just calculated the mileage on my shoes...300 miles since feb so time for a new pair..
2 weeks since Brighton marathon and I have still not run! (4 days recovery and 10 days cough/cold) I'm going stir crazy.
