wardi - I missed wardi!! Sorry chap! Hope you had a cracking holiday climbing mountains and drinking Keo. Nice start to the campaign too (you doing Barcelona? I've forgotten!)
Anyway my stuff. I was in Glasgow at the weekend (arrived Thu eve, back Sun). Staying with the SPO's friend, but I did meet up with Running Bhoy on Friday and stopped at his new pad Fri night. Sadly he's got a bit of an injury to his knee at the mo so isn't running (maybe 6 weeks out by looks?), but he came along to Victoria Park for the parkrun on Sat morn. Pretty quick course this - pretty flat with one small incline per lap (it's a 3 lap course). I had a good run, finishing 4th in 17'42 which is the quickest I've done a 5k for about 2 years I think. So I was happy with that. The 3rd lap sounded like ES's 10k too - lots of weaving, jumping onto grass verges to lap people etc but I don't think it really cost me any time.
I then rounded that off with another 13 miles back to the SPO's friend's place, and then did just shy of 20 on Sunday! I ended up doing about 73 miles last week including a speed session and full-on parkrun, so I'll be taking it a bit easier this week! I felt completely fine TBH, but do feel tired today and my legs are a bit achey. So I'll prob take the little un swimming later and have that as my 'training'!
Still struggling to fit any races in due to work, but have bagged a number for a quickish 10k near me in 3 weeks time. It starts at 9:30, so I can do that and still get to work for 11 (at a push) so I'll do that. Not ran a 10k since March 2013, so will be interesting to see how it goes!
