My food diary has been nil by mouth the last couple of days - been struck down with a stomach bug and eating was a bit "dangerous". Not ideal, and of course it's meant no running. This was always a cut back week but it's not quite what I had in mind
I think the Spitfire is the same day as the Cranleigh 21 which I'm doing. They are only a few miles apart - you'd think the organisers would work something out to keep them on different days.
Isabel - 3.30 is bang on 8 min/mile, so one of the easier ones to do the maths
Well my schedule called for a cut-back week this week, which is just as well as I have been struck by a nasty stomach bug that has completely wiped me out for the last 48 hours. No running and hardly any food since Tuesday evening. Feeling a little better today but definitely not going to run until Sunday at least - I need to get back some energy for a start. I know a rest is a good thing but I'd rather it not be accompanied by...well, let's not go there
Apologies then GM - it must have been your ginger twin
I saw they were having problems - they did at the prize giving as well as they completely missed the second placed lady. And I did see in the results an F60 with a 2.14 finish time which would probably be over 100% on the WAVA scoring so I'm sure isn't right. Either that or I want some of what she's on!
Got my tempo run done - 7 miles @ between 7.25 and 6.50 pace. Felt surprisingly OK
Soups - had a good run at Tarpley - a couple of quick miles which probably weren't too ckever but settled into a better pace after that. Aimed for steady effort so took it easy uphill and relaxed downhill. Ended up with 2.34.26 which was about 3 minutes quicker than last year and pleased with the effort as it's not the easiest course.
GM - yes it was you who passed me but must have been someone else with the metronome comment! I remember you looked really quick and of course I didn't know you also missed the start!
Angela - I did like the look of the trophies. I missed the F45 prize by a few minutes unfortunately as that would have looked good on the shelf! Glad your legs are feeling ok. Mine too - although we'll see what a tempo run feels like later...
