As i have 3 days rest, albeit i have a 20km run to do on Monday, I decided to have a bit of a speed run today.

I ran a good pace, but was within myself and could have gone much faster. I would say I could have knocked a couple of minutes off that time.

With the crowd and an actual race I believe i could get 53:30.

An experiment, I feel like Frankenstein now LMAO. can't believe anyone would want to come to the UK lol. Fingers crossed with the results.

Agree Andi, always best to get things checked out. Overall I feel more healthy than I did when I was 20 at present. OK I wouldn't want to play football again like I used to but overall I have a far superior fitness level now - didn't have to do much being a goalkeeper, just bend down now and again hehehe.

Hopefully you are repairing, maybe just an injury that will repair and you can get back to your running, seems like a stress fracture or something?

What I don't know is what events and running you usually do.How did you get into helping me, why did you want to do it and how did you learn how do it and learn how to put the plan together, what experience do you have at it? I would be interested to know because it seriously has worked for me.

Just seen the doctor, went at 11.45am, and he checked my heart and blood pressure.

Heart rate at 57 and blood pressure 140 over 83. No issues with that really, all seems good for someone of 44 years lol.

He said no reason to stop running and running hard, but he will get a heart scan and ECG for comfort. So carry on is the message, he indicated my heart appears strong.

Absolutely no issues or aches and pains from last night, so that is good.

Friday then I will do 60 mins easy and then the 20km on Tuesday hehehe this all sounds overwhelming, reading back I was panicking at 11km runs lol and doing 25km in a week hehehe.

This is a tough week mileage wise, but I am on a mission now !!!

Well i did the run and was very tired at the end of it. HOWEVER my watch has me running all over the place lol. That was not my route.

Either the satelite went AWOL or my watch is broken. Hopefully the satelite went wrong. Have you seen this before?

The run was good, i expect i managed the correct pacing but i just cant tell now. I was pushing it though and could not have gone faster.

Yes I still want to do the M/cr 10km as a PB attempt, assuming I don't get blocked in by 39,999 other runners.

I was going to go to the race control to bump up my start time but cant now as on my stag do grrr.

So will just have to try to get near the front and push on and hope I don't lose much time in the first 2km. If it doesn't work out and will find another event to do though.

The problem I have is that I don't want to enter and event unless I am going for a PB, otherwise where is the competition, if I race I race not trot around otherwise why enter. I guess that is the competitive streak in me.

I guess the good thing is that on the Friday if I have a couple of beers over a 10km distance it shouldn't make that much difference as long as I don't go silly.

Wednesdays run tonight - I might try to configure my watch for it otherwise I will be continually looking down at it.

Frustrated by wind!
