My first ever GFA acceptance form and magazine arrived yesterday, #27934. I seem to remember reading that I'd be in the green start somewhere. Is that the celebrity start? I may have to have a camera just in case celebrities want their picture taken with me.
Did a 5 miler on Wednesday with 2 miles at 6.30 pace and 3 easy, just talking with my soon to be ex-colleague. Last day in the office today before starting the new job on Monday.
Will do an easy 10 or something like that over the weekend but with leaving drinks today and a surprise party for a friend tonight, October running may not begin until Monday.
Well done PJF, cracking report and result. Well played!
Sorry I haven't posted for a while. September went something like this: Notice of redundancy - wife's b/day - wedding anniversary (had to scale back on both events) - redundancy confirmed - job hunting kicks off - eldest son goes to university - official notice period starts - job hunting highs and lows including one offer being withdrawn and another with sudden recruitment freeze... Friday - job offer Today...job offer accepted. It's also my birthday!
Mental month. I managed to get 77 miles of running in which included a 13.1 thinking session on Saturday while I mulled over my job offer and other options. Got back and was surprised I'd knocked it out at 7.37 pace with just half a bottle of water. That was a balls out PB time years ago!
Still a few things to sort out but hopefully I'll be in a less stressed state from next week.
Time to read back and see what you've all been up to.
Just a quick jump in to see what's happening and get a break from job hunting. Had my first phone interview of the job hunt campaign this morning. It went well but I don't know if I'm through to the next round yet.. It's a job I'd really like too. The waiting is agony! Feeling pessimistic.
On Tuesday I had a tough core and weights session at the gym. Yesterday I followed it up with a track session. Just a short one with intervals of (00s) 2,2,4,2,4,2,2 with 200 recs. Could really feel the gym session in the legs and it was a real struggle. Job done I guess.
Thanks for the best wishes, team. Looks like they want me to work my 3 months notice but I'm not leaving anything to chance. Started job applications today and have a first phone interview on Thursday. Not pinning any hopes as it's for a different sort of role, so I'm prepared for the long haul.
Had rubbish sleep over the weekend and was tired for the 10 miler yesterday morning. Had a sore throat too and would have binned it but a mate was joining me. Took it easy but then I puked my breakfast up after 3 miles, Strangely I felt better after that and we averaged 7.48 pace and I had to get him through the last couple of miles. Funny old game!
