quiet lately . . . good a time as any for a "me" post
but first, good to see VTr pop back, and Gul is quietly stacking up the miles - remind me, what's the Autumn mara you have lined up?
. . well, not much going on here - at least I managed 39 last week, despite the continuing CNBA which saw me amass just 33 miles in the previous fortnight. I need a goal to get me going, I guess, but the main issue is whether I've retired from marathon running. I intended last year's VLM to be the swansong, but something in me won't let go. I certainly wouldn't better the time, but it's so satisfying to plan and execute a campaign. On the other hand, why not finish with a really good memory (which VLM 2015 was), and concentrate on other distances (esp as WAVA for 10K & half mara indicate I'm "better" at those ) ? In the meantime, I have 10K a week from now, so better head out for a run . . . .
