interesting reading. I must admit if I have had a week off and then do a long run on the weekend, I have always felt better for it. Is it possible that aches and pains are a sign that your body/mind is saying 'stop I need a break' ?? Must admit what you say has made me feel bettter and not so paranoid if I miss a few runs. Flipping heck though a 60 mile week !! and 6.18 pace......think you deserve a break follwing Hal Higdon half marathon training plan, but slightly confused that the Sunday before the half I am supposed to do 12 miles...thought I would have done less that week. Anyway so far I am doing ok.
Siony eeeeeeek only 2weeks to your half. Cardiff half is at beginning of October so still a way to go for me. Had a bad running week this week what with the tail end of huricane wotsit last Sunday although did manage 6 miles hard work nearly got absolutely soaked by a really monsoon like shower...... but someone was looking out for me and gave me a bus shelter to hide in !
well into week 2 of Cardiff half marathon training only 10 more weeks to go !!! flipping heck its been hot here though so resemble a tomato every time I come back from my run. Kiwi I have entered Swansea 10k ,,,,you should do that ..... its brilliant. So will slot that one in my training plan. Have yet to convince Mr Pippity that he would really like to drive me to Cardiff 10k.
I am doing Swansea 10k I love it. Debating whether to do Cardiff 10k Mr pippity isnt that keen as it always is a bit chaotic with parking etc. Good to here from you.
Waves to any one else around.
