Brer - well done should be an interesting report.
Fish - shame about the race hope your back gets better soon.
Well after a weekend of soul searching and a good long chat with Mr C i've made some hardish but for the best (i think) decsions about my plans for the rest of the year. I've e-mailed TMW to ask to downgrade my entry to the half and also RTT from the 14 miles to the 10K (Mr C will then do that with me). Chester half is still on but SNOD has to be decided on. I didn't really enjoy Manchester that much and the thought of more very long runs is just filling me with dread. We also had a scare with my Dad last week and Mr C's Dad is just starting to recover after a major cancer op and it's just put a few things into perspective mainly about the time i was putting into the long runs and what i was sacrificing to do them. It was all worth it but i don't think it is now.
On the positive side Mr C's running with bionic hips and wonky knee has come on loads and he's managing 8 miles now so we can run and spend time together more if my runs aren't so long. And i'll have more time to use the bike he bought me which didn't come out of the shed last year .
So onwards and upwards off to order some snazzy padded shorts in case it's nice at the weekend and i decide to learn how to ride my bike again could prove more interesting than one of TRex's race reports
