Yowsers Super - freak accidents R Us! I'm so glad it wasn't worse, and to see that every cell remembers!
I have been at the short stuff - a couple of track meets [came 4th in a 5,000m and won a bronze in the 4 x 100m relay - don't dare ask!]...then this Sunday I ran the Concorde 5, and was quite pleased to finish just 38 secs behind Paula Fudge, was actually trying to beat a colleague, could have hurried up a bit I reckon to take on a CWG champ & former world record holder, but had no idea I was that far up!
As it was they gave me the FV55s prize so we ended up in an email exchange. I'm such a groupie.
Upcoming races so far with many more to come I hope =
28 June - maybe the Richmond Park half - I hesitate because the tube isn't going to Richmond that day which makes for a hit & miss combo of multiple trains & buses.
19 July - Newham 10K [the Olympic stadium run, see groupie above!]
6 Sept - Hackney Marshes half or Harlow 10, whichever translates best to a 20
11 Oct - York marathon, unfinished business department.
Feeling so much better since the freak ankle bone chip in gale incident [again a tree was involved] back in May, and my RHR went below 50 for the first time since the New Year surgery on Sunday, so am definitely feeling like I am *back* & with nothing too drastic going on at this moment, just the usual sore knee & achey foot.
Glad to see so many adventures lined up.
