AWC, at least you know what it is now. Sounds sensible to have a bit of rest. You can now enjoy the summer.
Got out for 8.5 miles tonight. First run in 10 days. Managed to fit in 450 steps in the middle. Will look to build this up to 1000 over the next few weeks.
Also got myself back in the gym (garage) at lunchtime. Was shocked to see how i am struggling with the strength work. Served me right for neglecting it for 6 months.
Tom, the first bit of training will be for a coastal 50k in August. Will focus on hills and steps (the race has over 1000) until then. From the middle of August I'll go back to a more P&D approach for the 9 weeks to Abingdon. I don't think I will need to do a lot of base milage build up.
Some great parkrunning this weekend guys . A special shout to Macca for the PB.
Brixton, Tom, a couple of hardcore training sessions there very impressive.
Still no running here. Had a very boozy wedding yesterday. Woke up slightly worse for wear. Headed down to breakfast to see my mate just coming back into the hotel from a run. If that's the type of commitment to required to get to 2:45 for the marathon then I don't think I'm willing to move up to that level.
Training starts for me on Tuesday.
Brixton, glad I've inspired you and HA77 to do more trail stuff. It's great fun. Just don't do any races that I'm doing. I don't want to be knocked down the leaderboard with you speedsters coming along.
Nice LT run Tom, that's a hardcore session.
I'm at a wedding this weekend do plenty of beer and very little running. The Autumn plan starts on Tuesday.
