Afternoon all
Lyrics: ???
What: Badminton after work
Why: It's what we do once a week now
Last hard: Yesterday: Went for an undulate but m'boy was working and first time out on my own for 6 weeks!
Last Rest: Last Thursday
Getting excited as off to do Rock'n'roll Madrid, but just the 10k,. By time I got the "All clear" to run again I was too late for the half. Bit dodgy though as too easy to get carried away. Will aim to settle for and hold back to somewhere between 45 and 50 depending on training this week. Reckon I can do that without pushing past 85% MHR but I'll strap on the monitor just in case.
Postie(s) Great times and good account. So tempted for next year. Might ballot and then if the big man in the sky tells me otherwise(Should I get in) then I can always pull out but vice versa impossible...AH, you can be my voice of reason!

Everyone out there is mara nuts and welcomes out of town/state/country peeps like nowhere else in the world and there's so much to do there too! Happy to swap notes.
