you realise RR, i'll be on your case with motivational drivellings now you've scattered those crumbs in my direction.

This morning I did 6 miles "tired snail recovering from a filthy night on the tequila slammers" pace. HR low, but after the big run on Sunday it felt like I was taking the car out of the garage for the first time after being locked up for months all winter. Sluggish? my legs felt like "shit"

Bois du Boulogne? last year the 4 letter words were in full effect frm this direction. Actually I did my quickest 5k through there as I managed to latch onto a friendly chap for some tired sweary banter and we decided to overtake some of the poor sods who were death marching the woods of death - and there were a plenty, I expect there were a fair few people who DIDN'T PACE IT PROPERLY

Still got another 35 miles planned this week (it is taper honest) - might have to shave another one or two of them off. Got a little 10k home, so see if I can get it into second this time.

..but yes, there are 20 sleeps.

I'll admit the last one doesn't really count as a sleep! Too exciting.

I dozed for about 2 hours the night before last year's Paris ....
