I managed a mile this morning to check what damage was done on Sunday. I've a wee tweak in a hammy, my quads are stiff and one toe is well bruised.
I'm still pumped from Sunday. The results are out - 25% dnf'd and the winner's time of 3:30 underlines what a tough event it was. It should help point me in the right direction for Windermere (some of Sunday's course shared the Windy course).
I did my long run. It was a bit tougher and longer than I needed but it didn't kill me so it must have made me stronger.
An off road marathon seemed like it would fit the bill - run 20 miles and jog/walk the last 6 would fit the bill. That didn't quite happen - - the first 13.5 went OKish the next 13.25 was brutal - mostly un-runnable track with slippy slidey bog and knee deep puddles. I was hoping to get to 20 miles in 4 hours but that proved impossible.
That's another week done. I wouldn't have run this morning but Jantastic forced me out but it was a struggle. So I'm on a strict weight loss regime - it seems that 2 extra days a week of sitting at a desk is not good for the waistline. I just need a little adjustment.
