Good running everyone!
KK - fantastic you beat all your times - well done.
Another week of little running for me - work very busy as I'm finishing tonight for holly bags so lots to do and the little one was ill on Friday, so we ended up at the out of hours doctors again. Much better now, thankfully, but it put a kaibosh on plans for running on Friday night and yesterday morning.
So, since last Sunday's 5.6 miles, my only run was parkrun on Saturday. Cooler again this week, and drizzling leaving the house, but that had cleared up by the time I got there. Decided to try to not blast the first lap like the last two weeks, but was only 10 seconds slower when I passed the start line. However, the next two laps felt harder that previous weeks, with the last half lap feeling like I was running through treacle. 32:14, so still my 4th fastest time, and 6 weeks ago I'd have been delighted with it. Woke yesterday to a sore throat and RHR up by 4bpm, so probably a touch of the family lurgy.
Probably not much running over the next 2 weeks - a week in Menorca then a few days in London - so probably too hot/too much sangria then lots of sightseeing. The running kit is coming with me, but I'm not too bothered if I don't do much.
