I don't know you, J Swizzle, but I thought you might try out a little run . As I said, I'd have done the same, and wouldn't have missed my parkrun fix. Good work on the 16.5!
This morning's parkrun was my fastest/ 1st sub 19 since my calf went in April, so I'm happy with where the fitness is at. Bit surprised, to be honest - I mainly took on the Abingdon marathon place as I was getting frustrated with lack of pace in short runs. Now that I'm doing long, slow ones, my speed seems to be coming back! Not complaining - just hope it continues.
Can't even think about tapering now - only seems like my marathon training has just started!
