Some nice miles last week chick
O4S - well done on getting the bathrooms finished
Pink - hope you can get your runs in this week
2old / Barry - some speedy long runs there
kiwi - sounds like a great race from you
A pretty productive few days running from me - I was visiting family over the weekend so got out for my long run on Friday - 17 miles. Realised when I was about 5 miles in I had fogotten to taken a gel with me - I normally have one on a run of that length. But it didn't seem to make any difference. I might do a few more without them and save them more for races.
Then left early on Saturday to drive down to Surrey and met up with my brother (Cheerful Dave) at the Banstead Woods parkrun. Nothing spectacular - 22.34 - 2nd lady (beaten by a woman being dragged round by her dog!).
After a day of lots of food and drink I got up yesterday and pootled round the route of the Epsom 10, which goes over Epsom Downs and surrounding villages. Really nice run but felt it in my legs by the end - I'm just not used to hills! It made me think about that and I have decided to put a hill session into my weekly schedule from now on.
Speaking of a schedule....my 18 week VLM schedule starts today. Thankfully it is 5 miles easy
