Your own version of Beat the Train Rich? Even more fun with your mates on the train - is it you that has one of your goals for this year to Beat the Train?
DT - sorry I was a bit busy this weekend to find time to amuse you whilst you recuperate from your nasal improvements.
When Mace suggested getting a PA in I thought he meant for sexual gratification but from your reply it seems that you are more interested in Profit Accumulation and Matched Betting.
Don't feel sorry for Mace - he ate all the pies - if you were 14 and a half stone you would struggle to run inside 8 minute miles too!
I got up at 4:45 this morning and was disappointed to set out at 5:01 rather than the targeted 4:59 but 2:57 later and I had run 22 miles. For today that must put me in quite a select bunch of people who have run 22 miles before 8 am.
However other than walk up Arthur's Seat I hadn't done much for last 3 days so started fairly fresh.
My body is sulking a bit now though despite me trying to appease it with a cooked breakfast including some Stornoway black pudding. I think it will throw a hissy fit when I remind it about pilates tonight.
After a quick flick through the new bits I noticed his comment that although marathon paced running has mental benefits, the physiological benefits are no greater than normal easy running . I'll ask him about that at his coaching workshop next week if I get chance.
Having said that I probably didn't have time to run it at easy pace anyhow.
Actually I find it hard to believe that taking only that run in isolation v an easy 14 that my legs are not in better shape now - I can feel them improving every time I get up out of my seat!
