JJ, I'm hoping it was a one off, as I'm feeling ok now, and yesterdays run felt easy and relaxed. I'll decide in the morning whether to run Saturday and Sunday, or just Sunday. I'm definitely benefiting from the rest days.
Exhausted, that conductor was really mean to you, especially considering you had a round trip of 400 miles to sing. You must have been extremely tired when you arrived home, so take care this morning with your run and bad chest. I presume you had to pay for fuel and the London charge your self?
Red, I did take it easy this morning and ran 4 miles at 9.30 pace with no adverse effects. I remember Benny Goodman, the King of Swing! I'm trying to imagine you busking in Southport playing "Stranger on the Shore." I can remember the TV programme which kept the recording in the charts for the best part of a year.
WtnMel, thanks! I thought I was going to collapse at 3 miles as all of a sudden,I was feeling so strange and finding it difficult to breathe. I very nearly gave up when I saw an ambulance by the side of the road, but decided that I would finish one way or the other. How I managed to run the last 3 miles quicker than the first 3 I will never know, but it's amazing what the body can do when you over rule your brain. Keep up the good work with your training, as it is paying dividends.
I had my flu jab this afternoon and my arm is now feeling a bit achy. Whilst I was in the surgery, I booked a Doctor's appointment for a general check up, as I am a bit concerned as to why I felt so bad, and so early in the race. The ironical part is that we were all slowing down at the time, as we were on the pavement, and overtaking was nigh on impossible.
Columba, the wings are "winging their way" to you. My mother told me that she had tried to play the violin as a young girl, and the only tune that she could ever play was "My Little Shamrock." I've no idea how that goes. Will we see you one day on "Songs of Praise?"
JJ, your club's chairman's 10k record in the 50 year age category is very impressive. Few senior club runners can match that standard these days!
I decided not to run yesterday, but did a brisk walk and felt ok. I definitely will run this morning, but probably not very far.
