Charlie - Had I been a queueing fan then I think I would have preferred the vomit spectacle to a signature.
Lit - Tues 14th? I'll check my diary.
So I decided against MK10k this evening due to travelling distance, then decided against substitute tempo due to heat, then on passing hill rep hill I decided against hill reps, I can't remember why, so my intended pb smashing effort turned into a sweaty 9mile plod round the fields.
There is a possibility of a reasonable effort at our clubs 5 miler on Tues. I'm on car parking duty, but if I can combine parking cars with a warm-up there is a chance I could race.
Bob - The tempo stuff was fairly comfortable and I figure 4 days recovery would be enough. Thirteen off road miles in the heat of Saturday afternoon was much more of a test. I had to for a bit of walk on cresting a hill at around 12 miles.
Biggest challenge tomorrow will be the heat though. Or rather, it will be motivating myself to give it full beans in the heat. We'll see. I think that my current fitness is much better than recent race times suggest and this could be another half arsed effort. Anyway, that's enough motivational psychologising for today.
Reminds me of local fun run I did last summer. Saw a tape and dipped with arms spread to celebrate my 25th placing. Then realised it was just a bit off excess hazard tape blowing across the finish funnel and the actual finish line was about 5m further on.
