Good luck to Dan and Wardi in Barcelona! Hope it goes brilliantly
Hope you recover RS and anyone else injured or unwell.
On shoes - the Boston boosts are the best shoe ive worn on the roads. I've got a pair of the first edition Adios boosts too and while I've only worn them a couple of times here pretty much ideal for me. Given I run about 2-3 road races a year thesedays they'll probably do for the next 10 years, lol
Only run a few times since nationals, part allowing calf to settle and then picked up a bug. Not a bad time for me to rest really though, loads of study on and first main races still some weeks away.
Ironically even though I've run very little im down to 11'8 which is getting light for me, purely down to sorting diet out.
Muss - you'll get some good advice from folk on here, stick around.
TT - that looks like a good plan
Bains - sounds like you're managing things the right way....patiently
PP - thought you'd appreciate the colour of these below Picked them up reduced price for shorter fell and more runnable lakes races.
Calf still a bit iffy but nowt serious. Using x trainer later and maybe a jogg tomorrow but saturdays xc fixture probably too soon being realistic. Rather save myself for final fixture in two weeks where I'll be 100%.
PP thats very good positioning from you there, bodes well surely! Jools and CL, good running too, tough old conditions eh.
CC2 - ouch, really rough luck there
Wardi - nice pacing
Bit of a struggle for me at the Nationals( didn't we all I guess in that mud!). Those conditions usually suit me more but I never really got going, felt fairly flat and lacking a bit of power and drive. Still I came in in a fairly respectable 516th place and it was good training with a number on. Hope to find a bit more zip for next weekends league XC fixture. Calf is pretty buggered today too, needs a couple days rest.
Great day out/ event and that mass start is something else! Lol A good showing from my club Heaton too. Local lad Nick Swinburn of Morpete came 3rd, top effort.
Caught up with old Heathside teammates in the pub after and met Jim Bob which was fun. Right old laugh.
