I'm into my second week of doing sweet Fanny Adams due to the old ankle and much to my own surprise I am thoroughly enjoying myself, no agitation or bad moods from me so clearly I was ready for a short break from it all. It's responding really well and I am using my time by sorting out my running calendar for next year, my dance card is filling up nicely, I'm going long rather than fast.
I'm enjoying reading all your posts on here and living vicariously through all your activities so for my sake please keep running and flogging yourself out there in the cold and wet, I really do appreciate it.
I'd say that the many unnamed people who had access to the same information, shared the same moral doubts and did nothing are more cowardly. I'd also say a country or state is no different from an individual and if caugt out should be brave enough to either stand up and defend its actions or take the consequences on the chin.
As for Lance Armstrong I think the man is so egotistical and deluded that bravery/cowardice doesn't even enter the equation.
Well said Carl an even more so as your weekend didn't go as planned for yourself, I've been a bit quiet on here when my training started to go the shape of the pear and I knew Sunday for mehad the capacity to go hideously wrong so I was quietly trying to get prepared and not do too much whinging.
When I found myself watching an unchanging screen waiting for Ricky's tracker to update from 20 miles to finishing time it did make me think how we've all come so far together. I'm not entirely claiming all the credit for Ricky's barnstorming finish, obviously he did some of the work but I was certainly willing him home.
Ricky- Congratulations, superb run and report. I hope you are feeling ok and finally got some shuteye. Another PB in the bag, we knew you had it in you. So you'll be off to te sub 3:30 thread then eh?
Hey Carl glad to hear that your little one is okay, you made the entirely right decision. I would of done the same and you know bothh you and your daughter would of been highly agitated if you had of left.
Next year if there is a gap between Dublin and Stort30 I'm definitely wanting to do both, if not there is a tough choice to make.
