I'm creeping back in here like I feel I should (all those secrets the ladies and I shared on Friday night have made miss this place)

As promised (to myself) I squeezed out my final proper long training run before Abingdon and as expected it nearly killed me. I ran from home up to the Forest (5 miles) did a XC hilly-ish 10miles with the Club, then ran home for a neat round 20.8 miles. The run there was ok, the 10 miles after was fine, although warm and dusty but the run home was a killer. I kind of ran/walked/staggered from 18 onwards but made it back limply. I'd forgotten how tired all this training makes you, and I did wake with a scratchy throat too...

There, that was mildly interesting. Whether I can maintain a 8:25pace for the marathon is another thing...we'll see

Just diving in to say GOOD LUCK to everyone doing London this weekend and WELL DONE to everyone else who have recently been Marathoning in some part of the world!

I'll look forward to the coverage from the safety of my lounge but, like others, secretly wish I was running London on Sunday...

Training for Abingdon starts soon for me and, as ever, with a wildly optimistic target!

Anyone southern based wanting to meet up in mid-May for a social drink or two, I'm in London from the 13th to 24th - we had quite a laugh last year (from what I can remember...)

 

 

New Forest 10

I've just run the course (as New Forest club member we do our "race" the evening before) and just to say be prepared for a hot one folks! I know it's stating the bleedin' obvious but it was really warm out there at 6pm and felt even warmer amongst the trees on the forest tracks. 

So remember your hydration and sun cream...

Just saying...

Enjoy the race, at least we're not flooded out like last year!

Newcastle... is that December 16th or 16 laps of the racecourse?

...just asking that's all.

I've lost my mojo by the way - no speed, no urgency and defo no fast 10k this Sunday... can't seem to get back into it at the moment. Unusually missed a club night tonight too, just didn't fancy it.

Perhaps a few MOJITOS will do the trick!

...and back to earth

I'll be just near the top of Sloane Ave near the Michelin House... happy to meet up anywhere really but if cocktails are required for AH there's always Maxwells at Covent Garden (usually Happy Hour/s in the evening!)

Just back from Google UK HQ today... kinda odd, but that's another story, and then a quick coaches meeting at the club to tackle our summer training schedule. All good fun - a very vibrant New Forest we are!
