just wanted to say well done on an incredibly courageous effort yesterday. I was going to say "what amazing guts", but it's probably not appropriate under the circumstances. still you know what I mean ;-)
Stickless - truly inspiring stuff. there are no limits ... (I often think of you for inspiration when the going gets tough!)
well done to everyone else racing at Abingdon and elsewhere yesterday. some great results.
just got back from wonderful Amsterdam and a brilliant marathon along the canals and the beautiful Amstel river sparkling in the sunshine and over the cobbles and the tramlines (and through the red light district, or it seemed or maybe it was just the glycogen depletion talking so near the end).
finished in 2:52:07 (13th in my age group)which was more than pleasing, especially after a disastrous training build-up. easily the most enjoyable marathon I've ever run, which is the main thing.
saw this blur moving very fast in the opposite direction at one point which must have been SiT - what an amazing performance!
Speedie - sounds like a great result to me on a tough course, congrats!
hope all you other racers had good outings.
what - 18M with some hills, bringing weekly total to just 65 miles. managed 82 miles last week, but a rest day this week played havoc with the mileage. is it possible to do high mileage weeks and rest as well? doesn't look like it to me. :-(
