17 @ 8:53 done. British summer time my ass, it was snowing for my first couple of miles! Then raining for most of the rest off the way, and of course it was pretty windy!
Not a great run, just glad to have it done. Was in quite a bit of discomfort for the last hour or so, still don't seem to be completely over the issue from Inverness although I think it was the cold that brought it on today.
Matt - That sounds like a good 20 miles, well done!
MG - A good total for the week for you too
HM - Good work on getting out
Was going to do 8 yesterday to push my weeks total upto 60, but never had time in the end after a late night then off to the football. Probably a good thing to be honest as I'm feeling pretty tired now.
Michael - Good club run, it's amazing how easy it is to get a bit carried away with the pace running in a group. Our group warm ups tend to come out just slower than what I'd (like to) call MP, yet there is plenty of slower runners than me. I've been asked a few times if I'm injured as I tend to just drop way off the back.
Stewart - Good luck with the 20 today, weather looks miserable! Is that the last big one?
NP - Well done on the swim and run, good luck at parkrun
HM - Hope you manage to get out over the weekend.
Tek - Just write it off as a bad day, it is still a good run though!
NN - Sounds like an easy weekend might be a good idea!
MG - Good 12 on Thursday and good luck with the final long run
Rest day yesterday, much needed. Parkrun this morning, hoping to beat my 20:14 course best but we'll see.
A fairly innocuous comment from someone at work a few days back has left me questioning my plans for the next couple of months. Basically I'm now in 2 minds about sacrificing the Fling to power on with marathon training in the hope of getting a time I know I should be capable of at Edinburgh. Though given my marathon history, putting all my eggs in the marathon basket is a bad idea.
