Electric Sheep ..... May The Force ..... etc ..... i'll have a stalk
Charlie - amazing run
Jules - nice toughing it out when clearly lacking the required energy levels you had pre-virus. You should be proud of that run, and there are positives to take away from the experience.
Bufo - Whoa!
Bainsy .... yes I have a bit of a tight schedule to run Florence with any intent, then a shortened 8-9 week plan for Tokyo, recover from that and then summon a bit of energy for the two in April. I've had a couple of mellow post-Dam weeks of training, will probably go around 30 miles this week for the total and then 40 next week, with at least two sessions of quality in. I can't see any value in doing any 20 milers before Florence which is on 29/11. I'll probably do an 18 two weeks out, and less general miles than a normal plan, with a bit more steady running thrown in. Also, will attend the track at least twice to try to sharpen up a bit. The targets are to maintain what I already have, any improvement on my PBs will be bonus, down to luck / better execution on the day. And all shorter races are no show-ers until Bupa London 10,000 end of May bar a couple of Jan Parkruns.
Happy racing, Parkrunning, XC'ing this weekend everyone. I've just started a course of antibiotics for my throat infection - yuck so no running tomorrow for sure
