AF - good luck for your half marathons this month. There must be a lot of races going on in your area, to be able to do 3 in one month?
Franny - well done on your early 14 miles. Lisbon half should be great.
MC - well done on your run too. Hope the new job goes well.
6 miles for me yesterday. Still over 30C. Hope it starts cooling down a bit soon as the kids come back to school on Monday and the classrooms get sooooo hot.
I'm still considering the Istanbul marathon instead of the 15K. Training is going well but when kids come back to school everything gets so busy. Just hope I can keep the training going at this level. My own kids will be going to 3 different swimming training sessions too. My little son starts at my school and they have their own swimming squad as it's a private school so he will be training with them. Middle son is still at the local council squad, (where they all started) and daughter is with her national squad so it will be crazy trying to get them all there. We will see ....... Plus, on some of my runs, and there is no pattern; they could be long or short, fast or slow I still get a side stitch. I think I'm just prone to them as I've tried all the methods to get rid of them and don't eat just before running...... Don't want to run 5 hours + with a stitch
Anyway, another hot day here and swimming tonight.
Have a good day folks! xx
