Been lurking and not had much time to post as kids off school and trying to fit in work and runs. Track session tonight just about finished me off. 1x1000m, 2x800m, 2x400m and then a couple of 400m on the grass to warm down. Had to stop off at the garage on the way home to buy lots of chocolate to recover and unfortunately those 'duo' sized bars were cheaper than the usual sizes...
Keith - I'd avoid any 'bimbles' until you have seen the physio! Hope you recover soon.
Well done Scott - not raced with deer before but there was a Doberman dog in my race in Regents Park at the w/end who wouldn't stop chasing one of the male runners. The poor guy (who was probably going for around 35 mins) had to stop in the end to stop the dog from chasing him! (NB - I was running too slowly to see this myself but heard afterwards).
LFR and Shazmo - sorry to hear about your PFs. And there I was beginning to think there was a distinct lack of injuries around. What are Stassburg socks?
Chicksta - you manage to pack in some impressive millage without doubles then. Must bode well for your marathon. The up to 55 plan is the biggest millage I've ever done - not sure my body would cope with more!
Did a 5 mile tempoish run last night and then 8 miles easyish tonight. Finding it harder to fit in with the kids off now.
I've been reading all the posts but keep forgetting to update. Having 3 kids off school now is not helping and it's harder fitting in runs too!
Malcs - a big well done on the speedy PB. I might forget to tell you if I ever run Lullingstone as I wouldn't be able to keep up! All that track work you did must have really helped you speed wise.
Looks like lots of us will be running London next year.
I did another Summer League 10k at the weekend, this time in regents park. Not a PB (40:56 - getting further away from that sub 40!) but for some reason no speedy ladies showed up so I was first female.
I'd really recommend this too. It's accurately measured and is a good fast course for PBs. It seems to cater well for elites and speedy runners as well as beginners and slower runners. It is crowded but the pen system means that I've never felt that I can't run at the speed I want to. In fact I think the fact that it's busy has always helped me to keep my pace. The crowd support is great. You get a nice medal and a cotton T-shirt too. They changed the course this year and I don't think it's quite as scenic as before, but I've still entered for 2016.
