Wouldn't it be nice to go part-time to run more? I might have to start running at midnight the way my work patterns are looking over the next month...
Sorry I haven't had time to read back yet but a quick race update. Did the Skye HM and it was a really tough hilly race, I knew it was going to be a struggle as I haven't been doing much distance. In fact the day of the race (warm up 2-3miles) was the longest run I've done since last year! My time was pretty slow 1.32+ but fast enough to get in the prizes and I actually felt fine afterwards so I probably could've pushed it a bit.
But the real story of the race was my OH he went sub 1.15 for the first time, which is mental considering the course. He's been following the McMillan 4-5days a week HM plan from 'You, only faster'
I also met one of those 'fast in 80s' club runner blokes, the secret of his success? Running over a 100 miles a week in winter and around 100 during race season. I might have a bit of work to do...
The parkrun local to me has had a few issues with children bursting into tears and stopping along the course and the parent being too far ahead to notice, which has meant that other runners have had to take care of the child.
The plumbing in the building I work in is really bad so we often have to deal with shit. It's led to much speculation with people (in the other department, of course) being suspected of staging dirty protests.
Duck that's still a really decent time especially after a recent race. I was at the track at the Aberdeen sports village the other day, what an amazing facility it really puts Edinburgh to shame. Are you trained by either Joyce or Ken?
Mr V I found the Vo2 work a real relief from long runs in the P+D plan, I can't say if it helped my performance but it did stop me getting really bored.
Been doing unstructured easy running for the last few weeks while I get over whatever was making me feel rubbish. Unfortunately this coincided with what should've been my build up to a rather hilly HM on Skye so I'm going into the race quite unprepared, it's going to hurt.
