Blimey - last time I looked, no one was posting! Sorry if I miss anything, but, rather outrageously (!) work has been so busy I've not had time to come on here
Iron - was TUPE'd, now new contract (rock and hard place job). Would have to do 26000 private for fuel card to work - I do about 8, included holidays
Scott - ouch! Hope it heals double quick.
Dachs - I know what you mean about the wind. It's deceptive - just feels like we are running through extra dense air sometimes! Reasonable session nonetheless.
Matt - Lakes at Easter mate, as usual . Did say "relatively" when I moaned about the hols - my Mrs is self-employed and I'm conscious there are plenty who would love to have even my reduced paid holiday allowance!
Pete - go on, do a really hard PR the day before Wokey - it'll make the rest of us look better
7.5M xc this morning - felt bloody awful. Knackered and as muddy as you can get! Run home was OK, but definitely time for a rest....
DS racers for me at Wokingham - must take them with me to Devon next week as haven't worn them for ages! Last Wokey was kinda spoilt by severe blisters over the last 3 miles....bigger issue is to NOT eat too many cream teas, chips and beer next week though!
Lots of coughs and sneezes about currently. Surrounded by lergy ridden people at work and home so don't rate my chances of getting through Wokingham scot free.
30 down to 25 SG, plus flexi taken away, so effectively two weeks less holiday a year . Can't really grumble given what others get, and not much choice in the matter anyway, but a bit of extra cash and a company car by way of compensation (sorta). Iron - I don't give them any time for holidays - how would I get time to go away if I did???
Fingers crossed the ITB holds up Philip. Should do if you've caught it in time and re-evaluating your London target is definitely the sensible thing to do.
Nice racing AG, but cause me some serious anx that you cans top on 59.4M
Philip - good 20. Whera re you in the schedule now? I've kinda lost track!
I don't do much travelling for work, but when I do go to new places it adds a bit of freshness to running. Yes, you have to plan where to go and sometimes struggle to squeeze it in, but it breaks up the same old routines, which can only be a good thing.
Devon next week SG for the first of my multiple holidays this year . There will be less than normal now though, as I am on a new work contract with 5 days fewer leave
Would have been more of the former Ric - trust me, not wanting to mess up for Wokey!
As it happened, the hamstring held up fine today for a 16M rod. Can't say the same about me generally or the adductor thing specifically, which flared up at around 13 miles again. Weird, as its been fine recently. Felt like a long old slog and pace was way down on last week - combination of tired legs, gale force winds and generally being a bit tired. First 60M week for ages though, and 5 weeks averaging 55M per week. Taper time now....
