Hi Bill W F, yes I wonder how they got on to.
I hope the training continues to go well for you.
I managed another 3 miles, I have been in for about an hour, and although I only knocked off 16 seconds from my Saturday run. I did my first mile in 15 minutes 33 seconds, so I'm just 33 seconds from my time for the mile, then I will build it up from there.
I know it does not sound a lot, but my last back to back runs was some time ago.
The forecast is rain by midday Monday, so I'm going to try and get out before the rain starts.
I'm going to try and stick to the advice given. I'm not entering any fun runs even PR at the minute. I'm just going to try and run to improve distance and times, and use it to try and stay out of the pub.
The biggest issue is the isolation, I live alone and unless I go to the local shops where I'm liked, I don't talk to anyone.
I'm aware AA meetings, but the ones during the day are quite hard to get to. The other two are at night, about four miles into town, and finish at 10 pm, I miss the 10pm bus, at my last bus is 11.05pm.
On top of that its the start of the sailing season, so I'm off to my boat, start doing repair work on her, afyer the storm surge damage, ow what joy.
I hope everyones ok, and are enjoying the little warmer weather.
