Also I've got quite a lot of PBs to work on next year, the clock is ticking, so anything like your little adventure will have to wait.

That's my main argument against too.

Skinny - They're beauties!! Btw, I don't think I've ever met a golfer who worried about being self indulgent before.  Sounds like a lovely run though.  I'm currently considering this little adventure up your way.  Care to join me?

Nova - I don't think skiing will impact your running too much, unless you break a leg or something.  Perhaps we should have a sweepstake on how far McF actually runs on the day she gets back

Will you continue the 'three hard sessions plus cross training' approach for your marathon DT?

7.5 miles running back from the aforementioned park run. WEARING A JACKET because I was too mesh to take it off before I set off.

The cenurion is flat , but with some sharp corners and I think you have to hurdle a traffic barrier on each lap. The course is quite narrow so you need to get to the front if you're feeling ambitious.

Nice race though. Here's garmin trace I think I did it as part of a long run or something before you go sniggering at the time.


Lit - delving into middle distance,  or just pot hunting?

6x500m at ~5k pace sounds a bit soft Lit.

Microsoft spellchecker sorts out all my grammatical errors, including how many spaces come after a fullstop (I prefer two).  If spellchecker says it's right then it's right.

I ran 4.5 miles earlier today, it was quite muddy.

She obviously also has arms like Mr tickle to be able to hold the medal that way.

Well done Lou - I have thought about bumbling a marathon or a long fell race off non optimal training just for fun but worry it would still be pretty hard on the legs - sounds like you combined the two experiences.

Do you think you will need a long time to recover? 


Skinny - I was hobbling a bit Monday & Tuesday, but my legs feel ok today.

I was intending to have a bit of time off after Broadway, but my niggles all seem to have cleared up and I'm feeling quite keen to get back at it.  It'll just be base building/marathon prep with some xc race though.  No strenuous training.

Perhaps a little jog tonight.

Great stuff Muddy - 5:32 is about my mile pb.

It was windy here last night. We had a power cut. Woo!
