Evening All - Happy new year All. Hope everyone has a good evening and a nice brisk run tomorrow. Sorry I've not been about, had stuff going on and family / xmas, plus smartphone is on the fritz - a "dumb" phone if you like, so not able to be so free with the comments. The screen is so frizzled I'm not able to answer it sometimes
Dr D, really sorry to read about al the stuff that's going on. What can one say? it seems like you are handling it in the only way possible, and that's just get on with it as best you can. You have your running if you need to take your mind of it for a few moments. I've stuff going on in the family at the moment and without some peaceful runs in Devon over crimbo I think I'd be back ion the fags or hitting the bottle (more than I already was over crimbo) - anyway hope things work out as best they can and also wish you luck with your targets in the new year.
Stat attack from me: 1884 running miles in 2014 (1591 in 2013)
Marathon 3:02:23 Oct 2014 (3:05:37 Nov 2013)
Half 1:24:44 March 2014 (1:25:20 Sept 2013)
10K 39.33 Sept 2014 (40:49 May 2013)
5 Mile 32:49 July 2014 (33:02 July 2013)
5K nothing to mention apart from a course PB at Hampstead Route B parkrun 20:30 in Aug 2014 (down from 20:58 in May 2013) - might try a proper 5k race next year as suspect I could snuggle safely under 19 mins on the right course (have done so in half marathons this year already). Official PB remains at 19:49 at Hampstead A.
On the whole a good year of small improvements. Not perfect - had very stop start training / niggling pains over the year. I train differently to how I did this time last year. I've learnt a lot of you peeps and the Heathside peeps and am pleased to be making some improvements. Roll on Boston!
