Wow a thread on here with people. Most have been dead on here for ages.
Well if that was my training shambolic as it was I've pretty much done it. Starting with low expectations. At least vienna looks a nice place to admire the scenery!!!!
Someone mentioned sightseeing. Have a wee look at vienna pass. Lots of these cards look crap but this one looks worth buying. I did think about a night at the opera but rapid vienna v red bull salzburg has won for some reason!!!!
Nothing in the post or by e-mail yet Alan don't panic
How do you just go for a 7 mile detour? where the hell did you go?. If you just vanished into the bushes folk must have been thinking you were going for the most discrete pish in running history. I bet the bloke that was right behind you and followed you for seven miles was a bit hacked off. Folk must have thought you ran the negative split to beat all negative splits the way you finished the race lol.
Got a 20 miler in on sunday morning before going to Dens to watch the Dundee derby. After a 4-1 defeat I can honestly say the 20 mile run was the least painful of the two activities!!!!
Right this weekend's run was a struggle. I'm trying to convince myself that that a long run where you are off it from the word go, have a chunder in a hedge after 15 miles and somehow get through it is 'character building!!!!'
Getting out the car after a drive to the football was probably as tough as the run. Good job my mate didn't get seats at the back of the stand!!!!
