Still not much running here recently.
Have been keeping tabs on some more excellent performances though, with the Cov 3 all turning in cracking runs the other week, Charlie also pulling out a 5m PB, and Lit putting in a very good showing at the Scots XC before getting back on the prize winning trail last week.
Liking that rep progression, Skinny and I'm sure you'll be flying again soon, Muddy.
'Ello to Madbee (hope you've turned a corner now) and Richard - thanks for the heads up, sounds great, and I am looking at a possible international competition next year, but it would be slightly closer to home - European Vets T&F Champs in Denmark.
I need to turn a corner very soon if I'm going to maintain such lofty ambitions however as I just seem to lurch from one issue to the next at the moment, and am now 3 months without anything like proper training.
As Tommy mentioned, although I got round the Nationals without aggravating the previous injury, I did struggle and initially just thought the soreness (during and after) was down to being hopelessly out of condition. Found I'd got a ligament strain however (likely one of those stray turnips) when I first had a trot out 3 days later, and hobbled home after 2 miles. Was much improved a couple of days later, and had plans for a decent weekend's running before the nasiest bout of lurgy I've had for a couple of years struck me down for another week. Grrr.
Still not right now, but did get out for a progressive 5+ miles last night, felt no aches, pains or strains and really quite enjoyed it despite the lurgy and being heavier than I have been since autumn 2012. Looking to get some decent running in this weekend, and hopefully the comeback FINALLY starts here. Think I'll have to get a parkrun in at some point to prove I'm worth a place alongside Tommy in the final team that we take to Brum for the relays, we've got some rapid improvers at the club.
P.S. Did someone mention cats and cucumbers? Great fun. http://i.imgur.com/4v9ftED.gif
It's lovely weather in Scotland today. But you wouldn't want to trip over a turnip here, because it would be a swede.
I'd have thought it more likely that you of all people would be tripping over a Danish rather than a swede.
