There may be more bling, it turns out I was third in the league over all as well! 

Always nice to surprise yourself Charlie.

With the notable exception of last year I always aim for a PB Lorenzo (you'll always be Lorenzo to me!)

20 today gives me 60 for the week, which doesn't yet feel like marathon training for me. When I get to 70+ it will. Probably. I just feel fat and slow at the mo. My reps on Tuesday were the slowest I've done at that venue in a very, very long time.

Great going there Lorenzo, I know I couldn't run that far at any pace at the moment. 

MsE, you need one of those alter G things at home! But at least you can't twist your ankle on a treadmill once you can run on it again. 

20 miles today at 7.56 pace brings up 60 miles for the week with 14 weeks to go. That somehow doesn't seem like enough time to get fit enough!

You boys are speedy on the long runs already!

More XC racing today for me, the last race of the North Midlands League. I finally got to take home the trophies I would have certainly won last year had my mother not died the day before the last race. I informed dad and both of my elderly cats that I would not stand for any such nonsense this year and duly bagged my V35, over all veteran and senior team trophies. I felt like I had a rubbish race compared to last week, but actually ran around 15 - 20 seconds per mile quicker. Same venue, different course. The presentations finally took place 2 hours and 20 minutes after I crossed the finish line, thus robbing me of my planned weights workout. I had to go and see dad and by the time I finally got home it was definitely time for food and a hot bath!

It's very quiet on here today!

MsE - it was in the gym. I was listening to an audiobook while running. The Revenant. It ended with just 1km or so left to run. Tonight however I ran on my own treadmill. I don't use it very often because it's very noisy and I get very hot, but I only had 4 miles to do (and a new audiobook - The Complete, unabridged, Sherlock Holmes') and I did a yoga dvd afterwards. I reasoned that if I ran outdoors I'd get very cold and would be unlikely to do anything other than head straight for a hot bath. I missed yoga last week due to life being hectic so I was determined to get it in this week.
