Good luck with the cross training Super. I suffered 2 broken metatarsals last year and spent time swimming and cycling which kept my cardio fitness up so was able to get back to running fairly quickly. I have lost some speed but that could just be old age!!
Met up with first timer Tony for a 15 mile LSR in Richmond Park today. Great chatting to him and hearing about the training day. Time and miles pass so much quicker when you run with someone.
I am training for a 60 mile weekend race in the New Forest on 2nd/3rd May so not aiming for PB's at Brighton and London but will still give it my best shot.
Thanks Sam. Had a really enjoyable chat / run with Tony. I had to keep telling him to slow down for the first 3 miles. Still ran it slightly too fast. Sorry! Think we did fairly well re pace for the rest of run with the undulations of Richmond Park.
I already have a 3:28 marathon in the bag and as well as training for Brighton and London marathons I am gearing up for a 60 mile Ultra weekend 2nd/3rd May so am very happy to do some LSR's with company.
