Stephen: well done. Very satisfying I bet!
Warren: likewise. It's nice to see you on the forum again. I can tell you're really on a mission this year.
Myself too tho not in the smme class as you guys. I guess we all really want it but need to find that optimum balance of hard training without overcooking it. Lots of time yet eh?
Looking fwd to Banbury 15 now. (My marathon effort is still some time away)
Bramley 20: really sorry guys.missed all of you! Completely caught up in my plan and heavy days itinery: I got up at 6.30 to travel round m25 etc. After race o gad to meet friends at Forrest of Dean. Then late evening continue yo Devon to my Dads arriving at 11pm!
Regret not trying harder to spot everyone. Will hopefully see some of u at Banbury 15 or Essex 20 etc....
Glad you had good runs. Personally pleased as it was the longest distance I'd run all year so far (due to a slow start with virus) it definitely showed in the last 3 miles when all sorts of aches started. I survived but really need more long distance work.
Happy training. Cheers G.
Wilf: hmmmm... it's so frustrating isn't it? .... Sounds like ur trying to push things on when ur not fully recovered. I get it from others when I'm ill or injured. I really hope you are ok for Sunday at Bramley - I'm hoping to be there too. My quandry is whether I also will be fit enough as I picked up a slight cold virus after the Great Bentley 1/2m on last Sunday.
Let's both take plenty of tonic and rest eh!? Hope to see you and the others.
Bike it: Totally agree with your strategy. I cant go for long distance all the time so my weekly mileage rarely gets up over 50 and is often low 40's. So l try to concentrate on the quality with speed stuff as well as a few Lsr's thrown in.
Marty & Lars: have fun at Watford. Its one of my favorites. Somehow the ups and downs seem to cancel out and I usually have a fast run so be optimistic and use the downs to maintain cadence. Im saving myself for the Great Bentley half on the 8th.
Lowrez: love your positivity... its what we all need now.... stick with it
