Good grief, I turn my back for a couple of days and I'm 7 pages behind allready
Some impressive running going on there, enough to motivate me to get off my lazy bum and train a bit harder
I've now started my new contract in Edinburgh, there's an on-site gym that's abssolutely fantastic, it has a pool, in-house physio and even a weekly lunchtime group running session (that moves to twice weekly in April). I joined them this Thursday for a hill training session, I've never trained with a group before, it was a lot of fun and I certainly pushed myself harder than I would training on my own.
I ran the Blymhill 10K yesterday (Shropshire) It was a lovely race but I was slightly disapointed with my time - 1:01:40 the course was flat so I expected closer to 55. Plenty of time left though to speed up and get some more miles in before the GNR.
I'm currently trying to figure out the logistics of running from my hotel to the office every morning, it's about 3.5k, but I could easily strech it out a bit to make it worthwhile. The gym at the office are currently considering renting out permanent lockers which would make things much easier so I'm crossing my fingers that they will get moving asap with this.
Anyway, I'd better log off and go to bed - I need to get up at 4.30
