Ps. Been posting about donating on the Paris forum a lot - I really find it inhibits my running for about a week after, never mind the effect it has on my motivation! So, I don't tend to donate within 4 weeks of a big race - still, the triaining gets the effect instead.. All for the good though.
Ok, had a bad week at work, gave blood, knackered, working this weekend, maybe 10k this afternoon, depending.
This is the issue I will have ongoing with my training.
I am rather worried P&D will just disappear and Berlin for me will be the usual trial, getting home in about 4hr30... Oh well. You know, 4hrs would be massive but I'm not going to fall to pieces if I don't achieve it.
My hats off to all you donors. You don't usually get to see the end result of your donation, but Iain and I do. You are saving lives every day and improving the quality of people on borrowed time immeasurably.
