Sounds nice Matt, I love running in the hills and mountain, be it Switzerland or Cumbria, makes you glad to be alive eh???? sorry Bus, no pun intended! Had that pins and needles in the head thing after the Portland 10 one year, warm race after a few pints the night before, idiot child!
Andrew, loowing forward to cc then, not many of us say that!, SG, thanks again for the test updates, fingers crossed.
So Saturday did the Herne Hill open 10,000m. Usually do it and thought might go well with the extra long run mileage. Got there and instead of the 16 degrees an cloud it was sunny and warm. So tried to keep to 79's and just get under 33. Did 32.45 in a good group with PP last year, but knew it might be harder with the weather. Knew within 3 laps it wasn't going to be fun, but kept to the pace in front and then 2nd up to halfway in 16 26. Into the 2nd half and got overtaken by a Kent guy and we ran most of it together. Finding the going tough into the last 5 laps, got dropped and focused on just getting round! Running in that knackered rather upright manner, I finished in 33.14..not too bad I suppose considering the weather.
Long run yesterday of 18 miles, so my last 5 longest runs have got to a total of 100 for Berlin. Had a bloody stitch for the last 5 miles too, probably due to the 10000m. Might do a 5 miler later.
