Good to hear things seem to be improving for you LS21. I'm looking forward to the afters, if not the race. I still haven't run any 20s (in fact, since London, my longest run is 16m, or 17m if you include the race with jogging either side - just one of each, so everything else has topped out at 12m).
Sorry to hear about the cat Wardi.
Looking very good AlanB! Impressive training.
Will be interesting to see how the big mileage goes for you again CW. And good re: Jr, on all counts.
Good to see SL.
Nice fartleking RB.
Anybody heard from Padams?
Not much to report here. My eldest (back in Ireland) didn't quite get the results she wanted (much to her surprise - she's getting them rechecked), so is considering working for a year before going to uni.
Training wise, up and down. As per my comment to LS21 above, I still haven't done a 20m since London and have only been above 12m twice..... If I don't get in at least 3 x 20s in the next few weeks then I won't even consider racing Berlin, and, even if I do it depends on how I'm feeling closer (it all feels rather like hard work at the moment - 45m in the last 4 days has left my legs thrashed).
In general I'm trying to take a 'base' style approach and just focusing on building up training again just to re-establish some basic fitness. Ideally I'll eventually get to a place where I'm doing 10hrs+ on the bike and 70m+ of running. Oh, and I'm getting swimming lessons shortly, so no prizes for guessing where this is going
