I'm sure you are heading in the right direction Dean! Was a bit surprised that you didn't say it was windy last night: I was in Sale, a couple of miles away and the wind seemed almost as bad as ever! What races have you planned in the run up to Lyon? I would be suggesting around three weeks of hard training and then an easier period which might include a couple of tune up races.
SG: meant to say I ran a Sale Sizzler at a similar effort to Hyde Park...so that was 21:30 instead of 22:11, which says something about the weather and the course, so hope that you makes you more comfortable with your time! WAVA was 75.xx
Why: reminiscing! The fastest I have ever done on this course was the same as my 5k track pb. Also trying to find Mr. Trim of days gone by. I may find a modern version of the latter, but never the former.
More this evening when one of my runners is racing an off-road 5k. Forecast is torrential rain and strong gusts of winds, plus heat!
LMH: sounds positive! You have been doing well in recent months in spite of the injuries!
Why: Brucie bonus whilst coaching.
June: 192.18k, 1 fairly hard race, 2 races whilst on pacing duties, 1 parkrun tail runner.
Asthma clinic was interesting! Different nurse who seemed on the ball and into fitness. Felt there was something slightly wrong and has adjusted my meds. I also had an ECG to eliminate any heart issues: fortunately no problems identified. Month's trial on the meds then back again at the end of July. Impressed with the efficiency, not least with the e-prescription which meant that by the time I had my ECG the meds were waiting at the pharmacy next door!
Still 25 here...was 29 earlier! And the forecast for tomorrow has changed somewhat: 31 degrees and a flood warning!
