Just see how it goes Bus. Things can seem disastrous one minute, then fine the next. I've half a suspicion you'll still turn out on Sunday, I know what you're like!
I've gone on the Wokingham half waiting list. The "relief" I felt that I wasn't missing the local must do half last year when it was called off, quickly turned into "oh no it's in effect sold out" when they said they'd honour entries.
Therefore, i'll sit on the waiting list, just in case I want to do it in...5months time! 60-70 ahead of me apparently.
It's probably a good thing I wasn't up to track stuff in the summer, as if i'd been under my own steam then, i'd have probably done something ridiculous like some track races at Watford.And probably something ludicrous like a double header, that i was still recovering from the first race by the second!
Dachs, don't worry, many many runners are like you. I'd say the main reason people start doing more support work, is because they suddenly need to due to a build of tightnesses/niggles!
You're going great guns though, and long may that continue, but one day you might have to do the extra, not just choose not to.
Lit has a strong core, so i have less worries about her discombobulating then anyone else.
Scott, it's one of those things you'd certainly pass onto a newbie/your younger self...do more core/do more stretching.
Dachs, interesting to hear. I do look forward to that rest day in a hard training week though. It's a reward for that dreadful feeling of waking up at 6am, and setting off warming up at 7am, wondering how you're going to produce fast paces, and then by magic it comes off.
do you think there's a connection between the big week and ill days Dachs? Or just one of those things. Do you only have 1 rest day per fortnight generally?
I was (for some reason) looking through the P&D marathon plans, comparing the differences between the "up to 70"plan, and the "up to 90odd" plan, and noticed the higher plan has no rest days. (unless i missed the odd one)
Is it me, or does having no rest days over 3months or more ask for trouble? Or is it simply necessary to get such colossal miles in?
10 for me this morn. 6.58 job. Little tired near the start but improved. I guess we're back into proper training now the tempo and reps have been re-added. And the Wed medium long after a hard session is a standard test.
