anniesophie - Yes, I will have a bit of help with childcare over the holidays with mum here, especially with the three year old... my 14yo will only look after him when he's sleeping! Lol at you making a visit to Specsavers
SK - I never know what to wear when it's really cold. At first I'm glad of extra layers but I get hot quite quickly and then hate having to carry layers. Normally set off with the minimum and freeze for the first km or two!
Iain - Great that your leg is on the mend. As you have no races at the moment it's a good moment to give yourself a bit of a break and recover properly. Are you planning a Spring marathon too?..I can't remember.
Khani - Hope your run went ok and you're up and ready for Portsmouth!
Shades - I have one of those glove scrapers but can never find it when I need it and end up using my nails or a credit card or something. How's the training going?
My running a bit better - HR getting more steady. Still walk/running to keep it down but definitely better. Not so tired towards the end of my runs too. I definitely think it's due to recovering from those two races as I'm not ill or anything. I know I've said this before but I honestly don't know how you hard core Shadies do multiple marathons.. I'm wiped out after just two three weeks apart
