Back from Liverpool bay
2old: very impressive half, Blackpool is not very inspiring and thats beng polite.
Wash; welcome, your times show that sub 3-30 is on
Chick: spring is here in Wiltshire, nice long run.
04S: positive new re knee, you would hate the Maldives most islands are too small to run around.
AA: see above! Great place though. i've been married more an 25 years just not to the same person!
Nell; your moderate pace is impressive.
Barry; good steady training.
Was offshore Blackpool for 10 days, did damn all and gave ankle a rest. Got back Tuesday night, ran 5 on weds, nothing hurt. cycled 35 miles with 1000M of climbing Thurs, ran 5 on friday and ankle hurt a bit. Cycled 40 on Sat, and today was Larmer Tree 20 an offroad spectacular which was 21 miles with very nearly 3,000 feet of ascent, nearly quit at 5 miles, came even closer at 10 miles, the cider at 15 helped, the cramp at 17 was agony (have never had cramp running before) but got going again to lurch home in 3-50 ish. Living proof that 20 very hard offroad miles is faintly stupid when you have hardly run for three weeks and probably overcooked it over the previous 4 days, but cider cures all ills.
