Morning All - March is upon us. Nice PB'ing yesterday from Threaders at the Bath Half - not ideal conditions I've heard..
TD - yes its hard to take in the liquids when you are puffing like a steam train. In a half I try to avoid the drinks stations for this reason (unless it's a warm one). In the marathon a mouth full of water here and there is kind of important - but I'm usually taking my fuel from the selection on my loaded gel belt.
22 miles yesterday to boost the week's mileage, added to the decent track session from last Tuesday it's not a bad week. My training has had to go on the back burner due to a double bereavement in 3 days in my wife's family.
Feeling a little creaky today - might try a gentle "recovery" 5 mile run later. This week is top heavy with little planned at the weekend and races starting next week, so need to make it count every day. Got to get through this week (taking one session at a time)
List fairy please put me down for the Olympic Park 10K on July 19th anyone care to join?
