Ah, just back from easy 6 and Lorenzo reminds me it is last day of month; so - stats - miles = 211 (inc 20, 20.5, 21) races = 1 (massive PW, just realised it was my first ever 10K result starting with a 4 (45:28), but it was 12 years since last official 10K)
Gerard, I don't have "A" races as such these days, but am aimimg for Mablethorpe in Oct, as a completion there puts me back on track to complete my 26th mara (one for every mile of the distance) at VLM 2015 (would be 13th LM, so a pleasing 50%symmetry) . Having done Manchester in April as my "comeback", I'm trying to carefully manage the beaten up legs to handle the spring-autumn-spring mara cycle, as it is many years since I did 3 back to back, so to speak.
Good midweek 20.5 there, Leslie Onwards & upwards now, Abbers . . . . Impressive work with the cycling, and especially the pullups, TAR hope that's nowt but a minor niggle, Rennur good work locating (and making) the facilities, VTr
12 mile "combo" here - inc 5 x 800m in park, then on road for a 2 mile tempo segment and a couple of 3/4 miles.
Gerard, your situation is exactly the same as I (we (Mrs B & I)) faced 3 years or so ago, so the phrase "I know how you feel" is not a platitude. Although this is a running forum, and, with a couple of honourable exceptions, I've not had the pleasure of meeting forumites in real life, I did find the kind comments I received enormously helpful, so please keep training and posting; certainly no apologies required.
Minni - fantastic effort after your recent travails - a report would be great MsE too - come on, get posting !!
