I ran the first of 3 5ks on wed eve. Pleasantly surprised with 18.22. Was originally hoping to get into 17.xx territory for the first time in years. But if I can knock ~ 10s off that I'll be happy. 2 more to come on the next 2 Wednesdays.
Keir, that's a good read. Self analysis (and criticism) is a tough old game and even tougher going public with it. I think you already know that you will come back stronger. Stick with it and you will have your reward.
Spen, keep up the good work. Big respect to anyone that can run ultra distance.
Huge mental investment required. Not so sure I have the mental strengh.
I always marvel at those folks that can spend 5-6 hours on their feet!
