Chubby + Duck well done on the races, the wind would've been worth much more than 26secs!
Duck what's Forfar like? Never done it as it falls in festival time but any course that claims to be flat and fast is always appealing.
Has anyone else been watching the Europeans? I've really enjoyed it especially seeing Jo Pavey, Lynsey Sharp and Eilidh Child do so well. (I might have a crush on Gemili) But I do wish British Athletics would change their selection policy it was a real shame not to field a team for the men's or women's marathon. I might write an angry letter to AW!
Long-run for me today managed to go over on my ankle and injure my calf, don't think it's serious though. Time for a cup of tea and the 5000m, go Mo!
Hi Josh, that's very impressive long-term planning. I like the idea of building a big endurance base and I've been thinking about doing it over the winter. It's not an approach I've tried before so it'll be interesting to see how it goes.
Work is so busy at the moment just fitting in 40 miles a week is a real effort. Last night was 2k x 4 at LT pace with 400m jog recovery, a real slog. Track repeats are really dull! I started to fantasize about being a 100m sprinter but I think I've left it too late...
Well done on the parkrun DT! Glasgow has a totally different feel from Edinburgh it's both gritty and glitzy.
taking inspiration from Lynsey Sharpe I've written on my hand 'Get out..' sadly this is where I'm stalling.. 2 hour run at some point today. Did first hill session for months yesterday 10x1min in the rain, it was actually quite enjoyable.
Hello again - I've been away with work for a month so I've had four weeks where I didn't run over 20 miles… but I did go to Glasgow to watch the marathon which was great fun despite the stupid diversions, security and general chaos Glw 2014 is causing. There's armed police outside my work (the dive team is staying in a hotel next to my office) we have to cross the road as we are not allowed to walk on the pavement or road and are questioned constantly. The Glasgow office is even worse (next to a 2014 venue) everyone is getting searched every time we try to go to work. Don't get me started on the confiscation of water and packed lunches!
DT19 Glasgow airport isn't far from the city centre, there's a bus that will take you to Buchanan bus station which is right next to Queen Street train station.
Anyway I'm back running, I've got a plan and I've got a lot of cooked breakfasts to burn off!
