Fiona, Stewart, AGF - good 10'ing all round, must be something in the air
Tek - sounds like it mate, but the temperature won't have helped having had zero chance to acclimatise to it and training all winter ( and into spring ) in that sub zero, windy, snowy, rainy crap . Training won't be wasted though and will make you stronger. What else would you have done all winter other than lay in, sit in front of the fire, getting fat and un-fit Hope you recover quick
MG - hope the lurgy's gone for the weekend
OH - all the best for Cape Wrath, go and smash it
IJ - welcome you make running marathons sound like shelling peas good luck with the pb's, hopefully if you stick around you'll get some help in doing so. We'll certainly be rooting for you.
Did my Sunday 12 miler this morning as i'm away in Liverpool this weekend to see West Ham take on Everton at Goodison. Moyes last game for them so will be a good one.
A couple mile warm-up before parkrun tomorrow will see me up to 37M for the week , so that will be 7-21-32-37 in the 4 weeks since Brighton.
Tek - well if it is a bug and coupled with the ridiculous temperature, that's shockingly bad luck all round. You've got a great base anyway so a few days off to make sure you're rid of it will do you no harm.
I'm seriously considering an October marathon.
Had a look at Amsterdam but wouldn't go without the family and the cost of flights + accomodation looks UK possibilities are Chester which i've heard good things about and also Abingdon so i've made enquiries and put my name on the standby list for that as it's currently full.
