JJ, hope you and Mrs JJ have a nice few days away. I'll try to beat last years Eastleigh 10k time of 46.32, which is an average of 7.30 miling
Exhausted, sounds like you should take a few rest days from running and do easy pace walks. These injuries were caused, I believe, from some careless runner discarding their bin liner and tripping you up.
Columba, thanks. It was hard work, but worth the effort. With the training and mileage that I do, I find that I get stronger in the latter stages of races, and am able to overtake runners ahead of me that are slowing down. This encourages me to dig in and run even harder. Well done for your sterling marshalling stint! Four hours is a heck of a long time to be on your feet. I hope the runners shouted out their thanks to you. I'm marshalling on Sunday, but for nowhere near the time that you expended. Our race is the Exbury 10k, but due to the strip along by the sea being washed away during the floods, has had to be reduced to a 5 miler. Last year, it belted down with rain and the roads were flooded in places. We are hoping for better weather this Sunday.
Tonight is a club session but I don't know yet what we will be doing.
