Evening all, haven't posted for a few days but I've still been getting my runs in, honestly.

Congrats on all long runs today, Hilly I am impressed, and on a Sunday am too. Mike, I've no doubt you'll fly on race day, don't forget you'll have tapered properly (won't you??) by then, and the excitement of the race will add too your training.

Hope I don't break the rules (Mike!) by posting my so called race report here:
What: shambolic attempt at Langdale xmas pud 10K.
Why: got up late, unsucessfully tried to organise 9 people to be ready by 10.15 to leave, ended up going separately with 2 running partners, leaving others slumped in front of telly/getting dressed. Got to the race, registration closed and race oversubscribed so just did the route with a friend who's still getting used to running; we were last!
It was actually a lovely day for running, and the valley is beautiful, and the mulled wine in the pub afterwards very nice too ( a few stragglers from my family turned up for the pub bit!). I was secretly relieved not to have to race hard as I've spent the week with very painful sinuses but have still got my miles in, just at a gentler pace. I know this is bad practice, but can't bear to have more than 3 days off in a week no matter how awful I feel...
Last hard: Tues 3.5 hr run.
Last rest: thurs

Happy last minute shopping all.

17 or 18 miles in two bits - one with the only other club member to turn up - nice to run at a slower pace. That was 11 or 12, and then added a six later after some toast and tea.

Laura - a three and a half hour run Tuesday - I'm impressed!
