TT, thanks. The Kenya trip wil be something else I bet. Nice work on the progression run too.
Piscator, I used to run to football training and stuff to try and keep the weight off. Probably the same as 90% of the running population. once I did a 10k and did quite well I was hooked.
I train to HR most of the time now like Muss and was tested by the same chap. (Sometimes just run to feel of a morning when my legs don't want to play ball)
Seem to have spent most of the summer pissing about with no real aims and rarely racing but mileage has always been around 70+.
Increased my long runs and prob done 2/3 20s now so they weren't as much of a shock. Had a couple do easy days after running the Thunder Run in the mixed 8 category over the weekend and we won the thing. Really enjoyable weekend. Won some adidas boost trail shoes which I'm hoping to be able to swap for road ones.
Got a 10 mile race this Sunday so thinking of sandwiching it into a long run. Will prob still give it full beans.
