I've done a pretty decent half marathon the week after a 50 mile run, nowadays I still do a HM the week after a 50, but both are slower than they used to be
I did 5 miles at the club on Monday night which nearly killed me in the heat. Last 3 days I've been out at 6.30am and only managed about 40 minutes. Did 40 miles on the bike yesterday as well, which wasn't as bad as running.
Less of the 'nutters' on the 50 mile front - a mere sprint
Off to the Commonwealth Games tomorrow - hoping it cools off a bit.
Minni: does this mean you won't be doing Rotherham?
i am currently lurking, sulking and generally trying to get my life back on an even keel
X-rays revealed nothing so next step will be MRI and consultant, going stir crazy. In the lat 3 weeks I have retired, spent a week in Yorkshire for the TdF, organised the completion of the sale of the family business property in Belfast, completed 5 tax returns and co-ordinated various builders and tradesmen at the new house - at times it feels like project managing the construction of the Taj Mahal
have barely run for 3 weeks and my longest bike ride has been a miserable 72 (albeit hilly) miles. Bizzarely I have managed to lose some weight while not exercising much -wtf???
Left work with £200 vouchers for the bike shop so a new lightweight bike is in my sights - also had a queue of hunky young men wanting to give me a hug at graduation, much to their parents' bemusement. One asked if he could have a hug before he left - to which I responded that at my age I was unlikely to turn own offers like that
