Boom - and the Spoons is back! When is your marathon - must be imminent surely?
Barry at least that sounds vaguely positive. However I think that they can't detect stress fractures on x-rays. Mind you you have been out of the game for so long now that it was a stress fracture it is probably healed by now.
Simon - that bike ride is getting closer! Do you have a time target in mind?
Free - lock that CNBA fairy in the cupboard!
I'm feeling a lot more healthy today than I did on Monday. Hopefully I can take advantage of that tonight in the 10K. I doubt that is a PB for me today but will head out at 7 min miles and speed it up if I am feeling strong.
No chance for sub 42 on Thursday! Aiming for that will give me only pain My PB for the 10K is 42:59 and that was done in October last year after a good load of speedwork. I would be totally happy with 43:xx as that is already a minute better than the time I was doing last year in the same race. I am aiming for a 41:xx by the end of the summer - but need to build up to that. I will pace it at 7mm and see what comes out of the mix.
2old - splits were pretty rubbish really. I went out too quick and paid for it. Wanted to go out at 1:30 per lap, but the first three were 1:26, 1:28 and 1:31, and then it went downhill after that I guess its lack of experience at the distance (as in it was my first time ever at a 3000!) But maybe 3 nights of late night boozing over the weekend didn't help either.
Re your aches and discomfort - I guess you'll feel that anyway having been on the bench for so long.
