Emmy - the construction works are quite impressive, nice to have something different to see every time I run that way.
Lee - good to have you back on here. Sorry to hear that the achilles is still not right, hope the physio can help you back to fitness, so frustrating.
We had a great time at Chester and can highly recommend it for organisation, course and potential PB race too. Doubt you've had a chance to read back but Iain did a massive PB and finished in 2:58.
Big G - I ran out to Kerswell on the main road today and home on the back road, and on the back road just before the CLS Laundry there's a whole stretch where the right hand hedge has disappeared and the ground bulldozed, only 2 days since I last did the route and the hedge was there then so they are working really fast.
6 miles, that's great news.
Good idea to visit your potential office in Torquay and see if it will suit you.
I got a bit lost this morning as I have to use a subway to cross a large roundabout, they are currently building a flyover and have half the flyover in place, and the subway route has been diverted with fences and a path in between these huge cranes. Was really interesting running around the construction stuff but I got lost and came up the subway on the wrong road and had to go back down and find the right route out.
mamafox - a chocolate milk drink is a great post run/race, fluids, carbs and some protein. Follow it up with say a cheese or tuna sandwich all within that 20 to 30 mins window and then you'll be OK until lunch/dinner
