AA: I didn't find the Boston hills much of a worry, but then I wasn't very fit and so was running well within myself. But certainly it was no worse than an average run around the North Dorset lanes.
2Old: I'm with Chick, do the reps again today! Not planning on resting anytime soon but as always work may throw a spanner in that idea.
Nell: Thats moving
Pink: I don't miss those 0600 swims, mind you they make you feel smug all day
Last nights tempo run was a bit pathetic, just wasn't up for it and struggled along in 2.5C, horizontal rain and a wind which could cut through steel, it felt a very long way from Dubai. Anyway struggled on and got it done if not as quick as usual.
Today for reasons which I have yet to fathom I decided to run on the trails up over the Salisbury plain to Alfreds Tower on Stourhead estate, so 11 miles of ankle sucking mud and torrential rain mixed with sleet later I staggered back through the door, man that was tough.... would like to say it was character building but the truth is that it was just a bloody stupid idea.
