I was hoping to see some good news from Padams, looks like I'm a little late...
Padams - Congrats to you and your wife, you have some great times ahead, I'm sure you'll enjoy them. You should make a good dad seeing as you are so laid back.
I managed to keep running 5 or 6 days a week through until the end of July and had even done 3 x 20 milers, but I had a sore arch/heel (PF ?) and once school broke up the rep cricket ramped right up and I got fed have having limited time and having a sore foot when I could find the time......so I stopped totally for a while. 20 zero's in August - which is enough for two years normally. I was hoping to bag a GFA by popping accross the Solent in Oct, but I will just let my GFA expire now. I have a quiet 6 weeks until all the winter training/squads kick off so have started building some bike and swim fitness again, which I'm happier with as I dont like the overall fitness levels just running gives me. I still have problems with the ear/sinus lightheaded ness at times too, so need some good health more than I need to run.
I though I'd add my congratulations to RB, very pleased for you.
I also note some gutsy displays in the mountains from Dan ans Stu, well toughed out fellas. Hope Dan is ok now.
Not much to report here, usual mix of 6M at lunch and some 5M commutes, although I did cope pretty well with 18M Saturday, so I still hope to regain some GFA credit at Abo. I was supposed to be running my first race since VLM 2015 yesterday at the New Forst 10 as I originally had a free weekend, but that got scrapped when my two were involved in 4 T20 fixtures between them. Usual lack of time is hampering the training, but I ran a lot of miles before VLM and am still running 6 days a week now (although mostly all short runs), havnt been in the lido or on my bike in months.
