Jools - another PB! Amazing. Birch - good reps. marrows - sorry to hear about the hip. Hope it recovers quickly. Leslie / MsE - nice slow running. OO - good to have a blast. Rest day today. Calf was painful as I was hobbling about yesterday. Not as bad today though.
Fishy - really sorry to hear your news; must have been a terrible shock. Thinking of you and your family. It appears those back to back runs were not a good idea after all. Cut short this morning's run with a possible calf strain. D'oh!
PMJ - just under 16 weeks to go till the Raceway Spring mara, so need to be doing 20+ milers very soon. My plan was to do my MLR the day before my long run, back-to-back, to try and improve endurance. At the moment, just very slow long runs, so should be ok, I hope. After Christmas, if I am doing MP+10% or fast finish long runs, then I'll make the MLR shorter and move it back to earlier in the week. Take care of the niggles, now, after the XC. Leslie - nice parkrun! Birch - these young folk, eh?! Speedy - maybe you're not quite there yet, but the hard work will pay off. OO - good parkrun and early long run. Fishy - 8 miles is good progress. Lorenzo - good racing - not good conditions yesterday; I hear the Norwich HM was a washout too. Congrats to Mrs L! SJ - I don't own a set of weighing scales, so not sure about rule 3 - trying very hard though. KR - podium!!! Well done on a very controlled race. Hopefully that's boosted your confidence. 3 mile recovery run to start my cut-back week d&d.
Wow, quiet on here yesterday! Pleased to hear you were spared the rolling pin, PMJ. 18 miles @ 8:59 m/m to round off a 67 mile week. Cut-back to follow Christmas Lunch with the family today as my brother and his wife are off to Australia soon and then we're going to see Martyn Joseph this evening - haven't seen him for years, but probably my favourite musical artist ever.
