Andrews, what a hero! I hope the ducklings don't all get gobbled up by a fox tonight.
I've really enjoyed reading all the marathon reports from Paris and Brighton. Really inspirational but also making me feel even more nervous and apprehensive for london.
I had the session with 3x1600m today and thought it would give me a boost if I did these on a track. So headed to one near me which they are refurbishing (still not open but last week I managed to squeeze through a fence). Glad I drove there as a couple of people tidying it up, waiting for council inspector and said it would be more than their jobs worth to risk letting me run round! So I postponed and returned 2 hours later, but inspector still hadn't arrived. Didn't want to wait any longer so did them in a park instead. Went OK, not great, just glad they are done.
I've started hoarding high carb food for next week - today I bought Jaffa cakes, fruit yoghurt, Lucozade, malt loaf, pasta, jelly babies, bagels... I might lock them up so no one else can eat.
Shades - glad to hear that your back is OK now and that you are running pain free. And Big G too, you've managed to build the miles up quite steadily. Bodes well for the rest of the spring and summer.
MF - will look out for your daughter! Must feel weird to have her visiting the UK as a tourist!
I need to do 8 miles with 3x1600m reps at 5k pace today so headed for my secret/closed track again. How nice that they've done the line markings for me, I thought on my warm up lap. Then saw a worker who said it was closed but I could do a couple of laps but he had the council coming to inspect soon so it would be more than his jobs worth to let me do more! So now in the car listening to Nigel Fararge (luckily I drove here, just in case). Hoping the council inspector will 'pass' the track so I can return in a few hours. Grrrr! But will be nice to have a local free track that I can use soon.
Cheers Superman. Both are easyish to get to for me so will probably opt for Charing Cross. When I did it before I really struggled to sleep at my parents house so would rather have my own bed I think! How are the legs now?
