I too was away for a while, 2.5 weeks in the US on holiday, and as my habit is to come here on weekday lunchtimes I have lapsed horribly (and not attempted to read back!).
I did a fair bit of running while away, including 20M round Central Park and 10M barefoot on sand (got some odd blisters on the front of my toes from that). Not huge mileage though as I firstly tapered for and then recovered from a half out in Oregon (2nd place, 78:38 -- which was OK given 1000' vertical, a flight of steps, and a minor marshalling cock-up).
I'm now officially training for the Yorkshire marathon on 9 Oct, so I put in a training marathon yesterday morning (first full-distance run since before I went away), though my legs were rather wooden even before that. I haven't really decided how much to make of this campaign -- I want to make a reasonable effort, but don't expect to hit the same high-mileage weeks as pre-VLM.
