SJ - Hope that hip stays OK. Hip flexor and ITB stretches may help? KR - mental mileage, considering my July total won't break 40! Nice easy 14 mile Gul. Perfect warm-up for decorating.
Dragged myself out of the office to do some sort of 5 miler at lunchtime. Mojo is real low right now but a few short runs may help. Decided to do 3 miles off, 2 miles on alternately. Splits were, 6.59, 6.20, 7.16, 6.23, 6.58 - 6.48 avg pace.
Happy with that session. I think cycling hard over the Surrey Hills has helped maintain leg strength and CV despite my lowest mileage running month for over 2 years. Will get back to it properly next week.
Thanks for the Berlin advice, guys. Got back late last night and enjoyed every moment of the trip. A fantastic city with some interesting history and a cool vibe. Will defo try and do the marathon there, it's completely FLAT!
Well done PMJ, nice one Centurion!
Cracking pace from the mini Lorenzo, well played.
Badbark, that's knackered me out already!
Haven't run for nearly 2 weeks due to the holiday but have done loads of surfing and walking. Got on the scales this morning and the numbers were OK, only a few pounds over which will go as I slowly get back into running next week.
Main focus now is the Prudential Ride London 100 cycle event next weekend and then the running really starts as base building begins for winter training.
Apologies, not read back. Halfway through 2 weeks off work. Spent last week surfing in Devon and we're off to Berlin in a couple of days. I know some of you have been about a bit, any tips on things to do in Berlin? Booked while in Devon, so very little time for research.
Managed one beach run in Devon and 82 miles today on the bike. will start base building in August.
