Overdone it?

I am assuming those figures assume that as a parent you fully fund university exploits as well?

All I know is that at the moment I pay close to £1000  month on childcare alone. This year, as my eldest has started school, my summer holiday flights are £300 more expensive as we have to go in half term.

We also had the stage of 'Daddy, i dont like you', when he was about 3. I initially got slightly upset by it but now i just brush it off with a 'oh well thats bad news isn't' type comment.

No snow down here. Easy 6 miles yesterday, planning a 12-13 miler tonight then rest tomorrow. We are off to a hotel tomorrow for a spa type day with dinner and overnight stay. Dropping kids off at 10.30am then i have 26 hours to myself!

No sno drams down here fortunately.

I am looking set for a 40 plus week this week. Ive already done my 2 x training sessions (spin and pump) and am on 23 with 13 planned for tonight. I then have  rest day tomorrow with a plannd mara pace session sunday, probably 8 with 4 at mp.

Andrew- Glad to hear you went with the club, should do you a lot of good.

Dr Dan- Good l;uck sunday. Do you ahve a target time?

I've been recovering last few days. Saturday left my legs quite tired. Did a couple of slow short runs sunday- Tuesday then did a hill session today. Just 3 x 8 minutes up and down one hill. Was fairly blustery.

Planning a long run Friday night and Mara pace run Sunday which will then complete my 4th successive week of 40 miles with x2 quality sessions. One more week then will have a cut back week.

I have my injection on Friday 13th and its recommended you rest for a few days after it to help it work. I'm off up to Edinburgh the following morning for the rugby so had always planned downtime that weekend and into new week. 

Sounds like a pretty tough session, CB. How many miles you hitting per week? I'm starting to build Lt runs from Feb.

Lou- Nasty little cut there. Hopefully its not positioned in such a place that means it stops you running for fear of opening it back up.

I'm with Bob on this early morning business. All my local running buddies go out at 8am on a sunday morning for their long run and can't really understand why I think it's too early.

I have a scar across my abdomen from having my appendix removed. Obviously not as interesting as some of the above, but a scar all the same!

Having a pretty easy week running so far as still felt saturday in my legs. Going to do a hill session lunchtime, just 3 x 8 min again, up and down.

Thanks. Its a shame I didn't know you at the time to enable me to savour the victory!!

Muddy and I are 1-1. I think i'll leave it at that.

I have a victory against Muddy to my name as well....i'll enjoy that one! Just quickly looked on RB and I raced Lou and mcf in the 2012 and 2013 Kenilworth halfs.

I definately would agree with something being in that. I was arsing about and getting sucked into mud and crossing over so taking in more mud.

I've raced Lou, lit, marrows, muddy, Charlie and Tommy. I may have historically raced MCF as well if we've done the leamington, two castles, long marston or Stratford 10k or Kenilworth half at same time.

Just looking at Tommy's 10k pb, hopefully its wildly out of sync with his ability as that would have a knock effect on my view of my current place. Any 10k plans in pipeline, Tommy?

Marrows, just as well I'm not superstitious!

Tommy- reading your report then glancing back over mine reminded me of one of those films where they follow a particular event through several different peoples perspectives who were accidentally closely connected.

Oddly, my race plan was to reduce effort on the inclines so I could take advantage of the downhill and flats. Ties in nicely with what you say. 

On a side note, this race was a handicap counting race for runbritain. This year its just slotted itself into the miscellaneous bottom section of my profile. 

Yes, as Bob says I had 6.9 miles at 7.26mm so you would have been about 7.22. 

Bob, great boost today. Looks like you're in 10k pb shape before you even start on the proper stuff.

I've one more week of easy and hills/xc then will start some LT stuff. Had my appointment through for Friday 13th for big needle in groin. 

Mace, enjoyed your report.

Happy birthday, Marrows. Whenever it may have been!

Finally, good long running the rest of you.

Yes amazing level. Was looking at results last time I did this race two years ago and Notts were nowhere. 

I'm hoping to get myself back to sub 90 by then. I tend to find half as my strongest distance historically so have a pb that's probably someway ahead of me for now.
