Hello, you've changed! The focus is on 10ks, next one is April 6th, last one will probably December, by then I should have the hang of them.. I almost don't want to run 5k ever again after going sub 19 last year, I fear I'll never get a time like that again! I've got some HMs too but I'm ignoring them. How's the build up to Edinburgh?
WJH there's a really fast V50 guy I know vaguely, who looks like he's got a right beer gut yet his times are great. It never ceases to amaze me how many people can run really quite impressive times despite looking heavy. Obv they'd be faster if they lost the lard..but they can still run faster than me!
Gentle 7 miles for me today, it's so windy outside that even walking is an effort.
It's the marathon training you're doing. Despite running more miles than ever doing P&d last year I was slower in all my lead up races. Some people get faster from marathon training but I certainly wasn't one of them, apart from the actual marathon of course.
