MG1 a massive weldone to you ! you got the result you deserved and worked for ! a little rest now then VLM training starts !
NP at least you got some swimming done on holiday , I see you have decided to run London after all ! I have given myself no choice , I still cant decide if I have done e the right thing or not !
Fiona sorry to hear the ankle is playing up ! look after it
SM6 ! bugger !! what a shame you dudnt get to race ! to be honest though personally I think you would have done well all the same ! its a well known saying its the night before the night before that counts ! how many oeople get a decent nights sleep before VLM ? I am damn sure I dont ! the training and adreniline would have seen you through I am sure ! still never mind you will never know now ! you are still runing well and I am sure that new PB will happen soon
SC I am with SM6 some 4-5 mile tempo runs will be more useful than 2 short fast sessions .... I run the park run then if i have time , run hard for another 3 miles rather than cool down miles not sure if its the way to do things but I feel it works for
Seeing as Im not running VLM I have decided to look out for a place in the Grizzly ! you may or may not heard of it , its a fairly famous nasty 18-20 off roader along whats known as the Jurrasic Coast , lots of cliff running , shingle / beach etc ! Its one if those local runs that people from all over to take part in and one I feel I should tick off most of my running mates have done it ... not till march and I have to get a place , not easy its full already ! but I have been assured people always drop out and if i want a place I should get it .
7 miles of cliff top running in an hour yesterday awesome views but wet and windy ! invigorating
4-5 easy later today
