Just lost a long post.. how infuriating is that?!
Shades - Look after yourself - I know you love your races but that Boston race (isn't that laps as well?) sounds an awful lot on top of everything you have been through. I cannot believe your boss would want to put those days off as holiday time. Stick to your guns there, I'm sure you will.
MiLhas now left us. She has given my house a "proper" clean (which it needed), rearranged all my cupboards (which was NOT necessary) and fussed around OH (not required either in my book). She has now moved on to OH's twin brother and will be staying with him for a bit before going up to spend some time with her sister in Le Mans. She is having a ball and has vowed never to live with another man ever again(!)
Big G - Well done on that pb.. that is well fast and bodes well for the upcoming half too.
KK - Great park run from you too.
SK - You have some scarily fast people in your area.. and I'm counting you in with that lot too! Hope your son is ok - never heard of cashew nut allergy.
Lily - Sorry to hear of your Achilles worries.
Mowzer - That race sounds, quite frankly, the stuff that nightmares are made of. And then you went and got into a tent afterwards......
Keeping up my running here and still managing my weekely tempo run too My BiL has got into running recently. He is lovely but can be a bit of a know all and has been lecturing me on not doing enough stretching or fuelling properly. He may have a point about stretching but on fuelling I reckon we all do what works best for us. For me that means nothing during training runs and only taking my water belt with some orange juice when running over HM distance. On races I'll drink coke or juice and nibble at dried fruit on offer. I'm happy with that!
