Not sure Charlie4. I think there is about a 1/5 chance of getting in. Good luck. No racing at the moment PIP. Ran my last marathon in France and just having time off. Will certainly be building up for London next year. Entries for us open in November. Looking at the Cyprus half as a tune up race before, and a local 10k.
Hi PIP. Don't worry. Get yourself right. Now and then you have to forfeit a race or training session for your own well being. It is not the end of the world, and is the nature of the beast sometimes. It has happened to me on the odd occasion. There are plenty more races. You are far better to race or run when you are up to scratch, not run when it is going to be a painful grind because you are not fit enough.
We can keep liaising on here. Even if there are only 2 of us. If you want any advice or help in anyway just jump on the thread. I will always check it even if it is not for a few days.
I am acting as a support coach for one of our runners who is doing his coaching licence and I have been asked to coach one or two other people too. With my book on top of this too things are quite busy. But I will always come back and check the thread !!
France went well. It was the world masters track and field champs. I came in 6th in my age group so was outside of the medals , but all things being considered it went better that I had expected . Nice to meet up with the kiwi team again.
Sorry to hear about your knee. Just be careful. You may have to forfeit a race or two just to get it right. let me know how you get on. Great to hear from you again PIP. Speak soon .
