No running today - late home from work and wife had made massive serving of fajitas.  I couldn't wait!!

Thanks, alehouse!  

good club session last night, all 11 x 0.28 mile road reps done at 5mm pace which is the fastest I've run for a long time.  Just a nice easy recovery run later.

knew yesterday's lyrics but not today!

Had a cracking race today!  Thanks for the good wishes above

Might as well have called this the 4 seasons 10 miler because we got sunshine, we got rain, we got driving winds and we got horizontal snow over the last mile!  

I started cautiously and felt great with the first mile in 6:42 (my goal today was 67:30).  The 2nd mile had a steep downhill and was 6:04 but I was still holding back - then we got to the foot of a hill - I glanced left and saw the road sign - 16% - oof!  It was a long and hard hill but I gained 3/4 places on it and felt good.  Continued to make my way through the field, getting to the highest point on the course at 6.5 miles and then it was mostly downhill to the finish.  Got caught by a few on way down but dug really deep on the last mile as the wind rose and snow fell and got them back - finishing strongly in 66:05.  Delighted.

Feeling back to my normal self and this Sunday compared to last Sunday is like a new me

Just 78 this month although, more positively, 45 in the last week.  It's been a rubbish winter for me with 74 in December and 78 this month being my two lowest months since 2012.  Hopefully back on course now! (touch wood, fingers crossed etc).

Nothing day due to race tomorrow.  Weather to be truly awful. 

RFJ, good total today!
