Nice riding Padams. The last time I cycled 100 miles I had a big tail wind behind me all the way from Felanitx back to Port De Pollensa. Maybe my lunch would've kept you going that bit longer.
Jools - A marvellous set of PBs including an impressively non-Bubkaesque marathon time hammering. I'm very pleased to have PB'd from 5k - marathon distance this year but you've done most of the ones in between as well.
Whatever virus/lurgy I had definitely feels like it's stopped affecting me day-to-day. The cross country race on Saturday wasn't much fun, but I got round. At that stage my lung capacity definitely still felt restricted and I couldn't do much about a few club mates overtaking me whom I'd normally beat, but I was pleased to be getting back to it and I did actually make the scoring team. Anyway, since then I've been either running or spinning (or both) every day. I have a low-key 10 mile off-road race on Sunday (Pirie 10, Farthing Downs) which I wouldn't be hitting 100% anyway since it's the Kent County Vets' XC six days later and we always target that. So I'll be on for about 55 miles for the week including effectively a hard tempo run, plus 3 spin classes. So hopefully back up and running full-steam next week. :y
