I may not get a chance to get only before next week, as not sure what wifi coverage will be like on holiday....so just wanted to wish Chick, 2old and DD good luck for Monday. Take in the atmosphere, as you are going to be part of an amazing experience
Epic reports guys - DS2, Mr P and Rachel - I'm exhausted just reading them all! Rachel especially - from a complete non runner to a 4.30 marathoner in just over a year is just brilliant
All getting exciting now for Chick and your Boston adventure. Just make sure you execute a la Malcs and not a la Freemers!
I'm feeling very philisophical about Sunday now. I can't change it and it's better that I had my sensible head on. I just need to get my act together and get my foot sorted properly rather than just trying to manage it myself.
KFC - go do some training!! You sound like you really enjoyed yourself on Sunday
AA - great report...such a shame your stomach issues slowed you but well toughed out to get under the 3.30. I remember that feeling from the Town Moor, I think I was 7 seconds inside with an almighty sprint to make it.
Simon - ah, the Masons Arms...know that very well! We've had dinner there in the evening a few times and you get great views from the upstairs restaurant as the sun goes down - stunning views across the valley. Yes, no doubt will be very busy over easter but will try and go there at some point.
Nell - I'm actually feeling a lot more positive today. There is no point dwelling on it as I can't go back and change what happened. To be honest I was surprised that when I did stop the decision to do so was so easy - a few years ago I know I would have hobbled through it, and hated every minute of the second half. I would have felt so much worse if I'd done that. In the scheme of things I will take the positives from my training, in that I know I am capabable of a good shot at 3.15 and just need to believe that I can do it uninjured!
I think the fact that I'm off on holiday in 2 days helps - I can just enjoy the break and then come back to get the foot fixed.
