Good to see you getting back in the groove TT. Bad luck on the nose break but that's what you get for mixing sports
Good luck on Sunday Jools, is it a flat out attempt or a planned MP section?
Jimbob.. no not running London though I am attending in a supporting role complete with smoking jacket. Should be at the Red Lion post race for a natter.
Woke up with a sore throat & sniffles today so binned the planned long run and did a steady 10.5 miles instead. First bug I've had in about 3 years but better to have it now than in 3/4 weeks I suppose.
Jools, yes I'm getting weary of this weather too, most of my runs this week have been wind buffeted and/or wet. Good effort seeing it through.
Dan A.. good regular mileage there, I reckon that together with your history of VLM performances you're a banker for sub 3:30
Jimbob.. good to get the last long run over & done with, nearly cotton wool time.
Ryan.. careful with that shin, I have recent experience of shin problems which I tried to run through. I ended up with full blown shin splints last autumn which took me 2 1/2 weeks to sort out. Best advice I can offer is - if you flex your foot up & down and you can still feel it then don't run on it. Hopefully you've caught it early enough so the physio can give you a comeback time. Fingers crossed for you.
MLR of 13.8m for me today on yet another windy day. 62 miles for this week which is my highest this year, 5 weeks to go now. I was thinking of running Barcelona in an orange hi-viz t-shirt and matching cap which would give Mrs Wardi a better chance of seeing me, plus I should get lots of encouragement from the Dutch contingent!
Charlie.. around 9:40 pace which is a reasonable shuffle I suppose, I sped up for the last few miles once I left them. He does stop for a light lunch most days, not ideal for runners but with his dietary requirements I guess he needs the fuel. Nice week BTW, enjoy the beers tomorrow!
