Hi Shadies, sorry I've been AWOL for ages, have tried to catch up every few days or so and kept meaning to post, but the longer you leave it, the more you have to update and catch up with.
I'm glad you had a good weekend in Tenby, Shades, it's one of my favourite places (only been once, last year). Must have been great to see everyone swimming in the sea.
Good to see that Steve and Iain are racking up the miles. I don't know how you manage it in this heat. And also that Ian is still getting a PB in every race, very jealous! But annoying that MF is still injured. Are you now waiting to see anyone or just resting for a bit more to speed up the recovery? Must be so frustrating not running now you have the long hols, I really feel for you.
Molly - Florence must be a beautiful place to run a marathon and hopefully the fact that you haven't run one for a couple of years will help with motivation levels.
Big G - good luck with that sub 20. The only thing I'd recommend trying (apart from the obvious like track work and finding a speedy course) is a strong coffee. I think for some it can help energy levels for short distances.
KK - what tour are you doing?
Not much to report here. I did a 'marathon week' a couple of weeks ago which involved a marathon over 5 days with different terrains (sand, road, hills, woods, road) which went well except I got lost on the road run and ended up doing an extra mile! Done a few parkruns but not managed to beat last year's PB. And did a 5 mile league race yesterday which went OK (no PB, but 1st lady). Still tired a lot but still not booked a blood test!
