Big G - It must be normal to feel low on all these landmark days. But a really lovely way to mark the occasion, I hope it all goes OK. Will you get the test results soon re the tiredness? I guess anaemia is the obvious one, but stress can be a factor too.
Ian - sorry to hear your football days are over and that you can't do the marathon. But good news that you can get back into it soon.
First run since London, just 3 miles. Legs felt OK, although ITB issue still grumbling so need to start doing some regular strength exercises I think.
Big belated Happy Bday to Louey - hope you had a good day.
Morning all. I'm enjoying the training reviews. I agree fully with needing to 'chill out' more, I think I have a tendency to get a bit obsessed with it all. Also interesting to read Madbee's comments re difference between the 55 vs 55-70 plans as the longer one just seems really daunting to me.
Tom, I'd just rest for a day and hopefully the groin issue will go. I know these can sometimes be injuries, but living with 4 males, I also know that they are always straining groins through football or any other kind of exercise and most of the time it only lasts a few hours.
BR - I was joking when I asked Madbee to run 2:58 in 2018 as we always seem to finish within a minute of each other. 9 minutes is a lot to shave off and I'm not getting any younger.
I've been popping one of my behind the toe nail blisters daily (with a pin through the top, McF), very satisfying. Today was my recovery run as legs didn't feel ready up till now. ITB still grumbling so need to get back to those exercises.
Is there a tracker for MK this weekend? Much prefer cold and wet to any kind of heat, so really hope it goes well.
