Windy out today isn't it?! 18 miles brings up my first 70 mile week of the year (and last I would imagine). What a battle the last few miles were with leaves blowing straight into my face. I think it traumatised me somewhat.
I don't see the appeal of the Brass Monkey. It's way too early in the build up to be of any meaningful guide to marathon pace and no chance of a PB either.
Midlands XC relays today. Bit of a trek down to Wolverhampton! We had a rubbish team given the quality of girls who run for us. You know it's bad when I'm on the senior A team, and I wasn't even the slowest. Our first leg runner is pretty decent though, and she came home in second place. No pressure then! I was quickly passed by a Nuneaton girl and was hanging on to third place until near the end of the second lap when a Tipton girl came past at great speed (I think she actually ran the leg 2 minutes faster than I did so there was no keeping up with her) so handed over to our slowest runner in 4th. She was overhauled by another two so we ended up 6th, which is decent considering I should have been on the vets team and Tasha would normally be B or C team.
Looking forward to some Abo reports as post long run reading tomorrow night
