There has been some fantastic training and racing going on, and a definite feeling of marathon campaigns starting to be built up.
Not much to report here. I've still been faffing around and not doing much. I tweaked my calf almost two weeks ago on track, so between that, being significantly over (race) weight and not having any long runs, or training of note, under my belt, I dropped down to the half marathon option at Waterford on Saturday instead of defending my title.
The 10 weeks since I got the all clear to start back have seen me average just under 60mpw, with little to no quality, so I figured it was time to get down to business with Berlin a mere 14 weeks away and me being 'fat' and unfit.
I've switched to metric from this week (various reasons, but it does avoid me comparing current condition with the same time in previous cycles) and am going to do my long runs on a 3 week rotation of 30km/35km/38km - figured I might as well go Kenyan style seen as I'm out there for August.
Also meant I got to start off with an easier long run today of 30km which didn't feel too bad considering. Onwards and upwards
Other than PP, who else is going to Berlin btw? I seem to remember there being a few of us?
