Hello all. I had to have 9 days off post Stubby with a chesty cough. I kept it at that to avoid changing schedule/goal iaw P&D! I ran Alsager 5 and performed badly as expected (28:55) but good to be running again and got up to 35 miles off 4 days. 165 for Jan was pathetic with time off. Al_P smashing it with over 400, amazing but many others stacking the miles up.
DrD - thanks for wishes and you're looking in great shape also let me add my congrats.
CC82 - yes I struggle to keep up being a non-English/humanities grad so always have a notepad for Sub 3 forum!
StuL - Good luck at Bramley. I considered it but thought it was a long way to go for a training run.
Jools - I would say I am enduranced biased too. Well done on changing your programme around. I didn't realise your run today was so long. It's tough to balance plan with commitments.
TT - Kenya sounds epic, enjoy and learn off Lev if you haven't been before. Looks like he had fun.
My team is out in the Algarve at the moment doing 3 sessions a day (Early AM 1-2 mile wake up run, Easy at 11AM then Session PM). So annoyed to have missed the chance to go but I should really do some work. I also missed a XC event that I would have like to see where I am.
PP/ThR - Damn I missed a middle class grain chat! Quinoa, bulgar etc.. love it.
I'm off racing for a couple now after XC with Marigold (4th) and me (45th) although I know a couple here were there.
Al_P - Impressive Ryde 10 off a big week. You must be worth 5 min less rested.
My 16 today was P&D long run in the end as I nearly settled for and Easy run as I was tired after the XC yesterday. 68 for the week. Hopefully work wil calm down and i'll be able to post a little more.
Good running all I missed.
Can I ask, if i'm not intruding what the plan is post VLM? I know it's the Red lion but which one?! Also what time do you meet and when do people tend to drift off? I have to be in Plymouth on the Monday but am keen to get the last train having given my kit to a mate. Also as my wife will be at home with the 2-4 week old I have a pass!
