how is everyone getting on? Rested after races? Building base mileage? Written (or sorted out) your training plans?
Ive not sorted out my plan yet so I better get my skates on. Been keeping the miles ticking over. Last week was an easier week in terms of intensity, but finished it off with a 20 miler on Saturday. Yesterday did a good 13.1 miles at tempo-ish pace.
i'm assuming everyone has received their Confirmation of Entry cards? Ive got mine, it contains my qualifying time, but I submitted my Abingdon time, which was an improvement, so I'm expecting another card at some point.
have peeps sorted out entry for their spring warm up races?
CW - hopefully just a little strain that is easily fixed by tea and cake I mean rest and ice etc - not really into vaulting myself. Ever since I saw the legend Bobby Pires vault the goalie's legs when scoring a great goal many years ago, he landed seemingly slightly awkwardly. Slow motion showed the movement in his knee was a bit of a wincy moment for the tv viewers. For Bobby however he didn't play again that season despite picking up player of the year, he wouldn't play for a whole year - he knackered his cruciate ligament and had to have major surgery. When he came back from the injury he was a shadow of his former self.
13.1 miles in 1:37 / 148 h.r tempo-ish run around the streets and parks of North London this afternoon to celebrate my day of turning 42. I liked this run because I didn't have any feelings of discount. I didn't like the weather - cold wet and shitty
