Lots of catching up. Some great speed work kicking in now too.
Baz/nell/2old - great quality in runs.
Carrot/freemers - so excited do you girls in london this year. The champ start is soooo quiet. Worth it to experience it but you know me and I like a chat and a laugh so green is more relaxing. Same fast start As we are nearer front in green.
Chick - nice shoes! Mine are blue and orange this year
bro - sorry I missed you. Flying run. I should have been in your pen think my run would have been easier with company. You've always loved loads of miles. I'm with you on then strength stuff this year. I've been doing circuits trying to build up body and core and I swear it's helping make me stronger and keep better form. Need to if I'm gonna do the double. And legs for Boston too.
Ive been back to doctors and now got some steroids to take for my chest. Hope I don't grow a moustache! Maybe they'll be illegal and push me round quicker! I've recovered fine from reading. Did 2xtrendy 5s and managed 22 miles in 3:14 on Thursday which felt great. I'm almost on my taper now. Whoop! Just wish I could stop coughing!!
lots of races this weekend - good luck to you all. Almost cotton wool time
O4S - onky you can make that sound like a fun day out!
DD - bet you can't wait to come home for a run on dry land!
nightmare at Reading yesterday : 1:35.11. Beaten by my 19 year old son whose done 4 training runs in Exeter! I was in a pen too high and they set them off at 5 min intervals. I always knew 1:30 was gonna be a push after the last 4 weeks of flu but I ddnt realise I was gonna find it so hard. I set off at the back of my pen and pretty much ran on my own for 4 miles until the following pen starting catching me. Then I got overtaken all the way ti the end. Didn't realise nick was so close as he was in the pen behind me. He did 1:34.48! on a bit of a downer now and need to re focus for boston which is 4 weeks today.
