Peter M : 4 stone in a year AND running an HM?! Excellent achievement s both, you should be very proud. Are you going to treat yourself to something as a reward? Apart from the 6 pack of course...
BM: Another 20 miles is excellent, it's so going to be worth it come the 6th. Do you have a target time or did that go when you got injured?
I'm off work today so took the opportunity for a leisurely 5.5m in the fog. It's the longest I've done since Bath two weeks ago and I was starting to get twitchy about getting back out there. Glad I did, it felt great and I'm set up for the weekend.
Great results from everyone today, congratulations all! I realise some of you are disappointed to miss your goals, but from my 2:08 P.O.V., you're all winners!
I have to say that I was very glad indeed to have had my race in the cold drizzle last weekend, I bailed after 2 miles today as the sunshine was too much for me. My left foot has been playing up since my HM so I'm going to cross-train for a week or so, let everything settle down a bit, do plenty of stretching. Won't hurt to take it steady for a while, even though I'm desperate to maintain my fitness.
