Just let me get this straight, two marathons in two days, first one 3:42 and the second one 3:18? I think I need to sit down just to think about that. And, oh yes, this is just practice for some A race later? Handsome.
Dustin, RFJ and other xcountry people, well done.
Missed emzaps post but gather things went well. Hope that means somethings can be filed under history.
Gobi being mysterious now. "It's a secret" is a stated invitation to speculation.
Me? A mixed session. Lousy night last night - went to a film last night with Mr. S., only available tickets v. close to screen, therefore got carsick within 15 min. shan't do that again. Therefore not feeling inspired opted for a lazy run to claim a coffee at a friend's house. She's house prisoner to a disabled husband, needs the disruption of someone to bring mud into the house, roll on the floor with the dog, and extra mouth to fill at breakfast time. Or that's my excuse. I ran faster than usual, well, that's not difficult, but it still didn't feel like a session, so, on coming home, I did the home stairs. 40 ascents, 30 of them two at a time.
And I got an idea for a test of fitness for the SLMM. Each step is 21cm high. There are 15 steps. That makes 3.15 meters per ascent. A set of 40 is therefore 126 meters. Ten sets is about the height gain for each day in the Wansford class of the SLMM.
These days I spend a fair amount of time around the house. If I can do ten sets of forty comfortably in the course of a day by the end of term I'll sign up. Of course, there's a world of difference between going up my stairs, even two at a time, and doing the same on a mountain, but it will give my legs the idea.
Isn't hope a wonderful thing?
go well all
