I'm OK about pulling out...but with only about 45 miles clocked in March (against the 140 odd last March), i think my training diary was trying to tell me something!!
At least now i'm healthy, still fairly fit, and still enjoying my running.....which i might not be if i attempted MK as underprepared as this. So the St John's crews can rest easy that i won't be troubling them!!
I've decided against the race, mostly in part of life getting in the way of training, and i haven't been able to do anywhere near the mileage needed for a good run - and the calender eventually closed in on me.
I didn't want to just 'get round', or end up in a world of pain, as the plan was to try and get a PB (beat last years VLM time) - I'm not sponsored or anything this year, so not really letting anyone down. They'll be another one another time!
I'm just running for fun now that i'm not training, and it's quite a nice feeling....although have to curb the cakes a bit now!!
