What: 8k off road,44 minuts
Why: slightly faster than intended at 5:30 per k. Don't tell Dibs! In my defence I intended to run 5:45ks, and did for the first half and into the sleet. The second half was easier with the wind behind. Got back to the car and the sun came out.
Dentist was a bit of a pain: a hit to the pocket and a bit of a struggle with breathing.Temporary crown fitted and the new crown should be fitted on March 1st.
Unfortunately x-rays revealed a few other problems which need investigating.
Alehouse: "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in". Rarely do I let people pass me! Probably because I set off nice and steady and run fairly even paced races. Thanks for the line, BR! Aiming for 80% WAVA over 5 or 10k. And if I don't get it I won't shed too many tears: just glad to be running. Would like to run 366 days this year (although nose op may force a re-think!) and at least 2016k,and preferably rather more. Top 100 in my age group rankings would be nice, and i hope to make a difference to the athletes that I advise. And to celebrate the successes on here, of course. Would love to join Hilly in the sub 20 club! Sale Sizzlers anyone? Should be on your list, OL!
AOH D33, Cape Wrath Challenge week, Dirty 30, Dales Trail 30, Snowdonia Mara and a few halves and parkruns. Would be nice to better my half PB (1:55:19 )
1000 miles in 2016
2016 k in 2016
BR - "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in" (BR told me to put that) He likes to be competitive.
Chicksta: Hamburg (17 April) and Prague (8 May) marathons - as close to 3:30 as possible and hopefully a consistent performance in both races
Emzap get back to a sub 25 min 5 km. Run 1678 km (I think that was Pammie's 20.16 miles a week)
Hilly - get back into marathon shape for April 3rd and do the best I can. Get back under 20 mins for 5k, back under 70 mins for 10 miles and enjoy new races.
