Thanks for the kind words JB. In fact, over the last week the injury seems to have improved...so I've decided to go for it. A PB might be out of the question but the chance of doing Boston might not come up again. As you suggested, I'm going to get some physio.
Booked my flights at the weekend so here goes....
9 miles at 8.40 pace yesterday.
It's very quiet round here isn't it?
GOOD FOR YOU MAN!
Seriously, take a sensible approach, less is more / better to be undertrained than over-trained and all that malarkey. It's over 4 months until the race so there is plenty of time to put something together. As you say, it may not be a PB attempt but that doesn't matter. You've earned the right to run it. Finishing it can be the challenge and the bling at the end will be your prize. Yey for booking the flight and committing!
Yes it is quiet, I check in to see if there are any more posts and try to keep it moving and showing on the first page of events so the Boston hopefuls drop in. Hopefully the lurkers will de-cloak and share the banter. C'mon BQ'ers, share the love.
I had Cross Country at the weekend - Met league at Perivale, totally horrendous conditions. I struggled in the sludge and hurt myself so will definitely skip the next fixture. It's forced me to take a couple of extra days off, and it's not worth risking it. I've worked hard already for my Boston training and don't want it to all go Pete Tong. Managed 45 miles in training last week and hopeful that I can reach a similar number this week.
