Both getting there early to get in the first wave then helping out afterwards. Well I think that's the plan I'm down for marshal point 9 on the bike route with 2 others.

Ah sun, isn't it lovely!  Rest day today, off for a walk with the family.

I had a crappy long run on Saturday and was really disheartened afterwards. It was fine on the way out, but turning into the wind for the homeward half was bloody awful. I ended up walking a lot of it because it was just as quick as attempting to run. Can't remember the last time I walked during a run. On my feet for 2hrs 10min and managed a pants 10.5 miles. 

However, I've been out for a trot this morning and did a lovely 5 miles in under 50 mins, and enjoyed every stride.

Onwards and upwards.

40 sweaty minutes of Audiofuelling with Chrissie - time for a bath methinks.

Looking back on week 8

For me, last week was my biggest week so far – a total of 17.25hrs training (plus 7.5hrs hiking) with over 11 of those hours on the bike

This included by first 2 rides on my road bike (this year) including a 75miler on Friday (@ an average speed of 17.1mph)

Quit happy with the progress

 

Week 9 will be more of a step back and recover week
