Only had chance to do a quick read back as we've had an entire week without t'internet... Thanks BT!!!
DD - Amazing to have gone from zero to well over 50 miles in the space of 4 weeks. I've been trying to get some endurance base since October and this week will be my first 50+ week since March 2013.
(((O4S))) - Sorry to hear about your ear.
Carrot - Superb and shiny new pb! You must be super confident that the undoubted speed that you have will translate into an even shinier new mara pb. Then again, as we've said and debated many times on this forum, you ladies struggle to convert your half times to the full distance compared to us men!
Nell & Barry - Bloody quick intervals gents.
Minni - Never thought i'd be telling you to go for a no. 2!
Chick - Raccoons!!!!... You may not have been drinking, but you do realise that even if you're running, smoking MARIJUANA is still illegal??
So far this week i've staggered through a 5m steady/3m tempo on Tues (should have been 5 & 5 but couldn't manage it... Again!), 5m recovery Weds and 12m MLR last night with the last two @ (try's not to laugh) 7.26-MP.
All of these have been done on the dreadie as i'm nervous of slipping over and damaging my knees.I can honestly say that i'm really not enjoying this training programme so far! I'm not sure whether it's because i'm doing Brighton rather than VLM, or whether it's because i'm a lot slower than i was?
Minni - Don't ever give up hope. If i can offer one crumb of useful advice, it is to come back S-L-O-W-L-Y. I've lost count of the times that i've had to start all over again due to trying to rush back. Just keep doing what you're doing and keep swimming and strengthening etc...
Barry - Bloody fast 15 sir!
AA - Call yourself a proper runner???
Was plotting pre-Brighton races with a club mate last night who's also doing Brighton and realised that Bramley 20 is the week before Tunbridge Wells half, so unfortunately i won't be doing it.
