How is the niggle today, Birch? Hope you are OK, Poacher. I am also treading a fine line between injury and minor niggle with BOTH Achilles talking to me. Inevitable really as the other takes the strain when one is moaning while I continue to work on form. I'm going to get weekly massages to see if I can sort this out because it is so tedious the way it holds me back. Pleased to see you have gone all technical now, Gul. Because you will be able to see what we can all see about your ability to run fast and then take that confidence into your next marathon. Looking good, GD.
Ploddy 9 miles this morning along the towpaths @8:08/mi. Now planning a workout to teach in front of assessors up in London to complete the teaching exercise to music qualification I started in December. Except I have now decided I don't really want to do it....
Great racing Lorenzo! Do you puke at the finish line through?
The only thing that is different for me when training on hills for a flat race is that I have to watch my cadence which can slow down with hills and then translate into slower turnover in a race. I now focus on fast feet when hill running whereas I used to just amble a bit and enjoy the scenery (which, frankly, is the whole point of hill running...)
