Keep positive, Alex!
MG2: consistent consistency is the key!
What: 11k off road, 1 hr and 40 seconds. Felt fairly comfortable, but back off after 7k.
Why: consistent consistency...and what constitutes a long run for me.
Got to 9.5k and ran across a golf course: as soon as I got on the grass my calf/Achilles were causing discomfort: may be relevant to you, WP! Just iced the calf. Stretch later!
Whilst running was reflecting on yesterday's weather: lightning in the Brecon Beacons and experienced sailors having to be rescued near Lytham during a yacht race. It must have been quite bad here as long stretches of the river bank have had the gravel surface washed or blown away.
WP: will be interested on your sports therapist's views, not least on what I wrote to you!
Off to see mum in Chester shortly.
