Emzap: I'm bored! Been in bed with leg up, bathroom trips apart, since Friday 3pm. Will be going to surgery tomorrow or Tues to get dressing changed and have a good look at infection. Won't tempt fate by commenting!
What: 10 miles
What: Great South Run - first time I've run 10 miles in over year and even though I really started to feel it in my legs around mile 7 it was a good run and I'm determined to keep running a long distance on a Sunday. Will book myself into more 10 mile races to keep up my motivation.
Last hard: Thursday halloween howler 5K
Last rest: Yesterday (I never do anything on a Saturday)
Ale, keep gritting those teeth.
NZC, well battled. I think that you knew early on the way that it was going. In retrospect I think that you probably pulled off a brilliant recovery. 2min up at 10k, 5 min up at 21k, on a hot day that makes 9min down a serious rescue. It could easily have been 30 min down or more.
Tom, I think that you've been rumbled. Glad you enjoyed the (snuffly) marshalling.
Me? Coached swim session. A new chap arrived, clearly a biker, and young with it. He also admitted to having done 12+ months of weights training. He was almost as slow as me, but once he's got a few small techniques and tips embedded, my usual support role will be confirmed.
Much cooking and catering this weekend, the finale being the pumpkin carving. I'll tri and post a picture over on the dark side.
