Eighteen weeks??? F**k!!! No doubt I'll panic & start asking foriegn travel questions nearer the date. Having never left Blighty before, I'm more than a little nervous... 

My Rome training schedule starts at the end of November. November is going to be a month of mud for me, with a X-Country league race, a X-Country 10K, and a X-Country Half Marathon in the pipeline, as well as a 'flat & fast' 10K near Stratford Upon Avon..

Like Singular Ladies Fun Bag, I've got to keep drinking the honey & lemon. However, at the same time I'll be swallowing Beechams flu capsules in an effort to get rid of the stinking cold that mugged me on Wednesday morning. No wonder I ran a Personal Worst time for a 5K on Tuesday evening. I have a slow run pencilled in for Saturday then I'll be taking my training runs slowly, one day at a time, to enable me to build up my fitness levels again.

Feet up on the sofa & watch another Doctor Who DVD methinks.

Two Half Marathons on consecutive weekends, racking up my 5th & 7th best times respectively, after surviving an exhausting week on very little sleep... I'm happy with that, although I am feeling very run down today.

So today I have taken a day off work & am taking the opportunity to stretch out on the sofa drinking hot honey & lemon whilst watching a box set of Asterix DVDs...

That's what I call recovery.

Cardiff Half Marathon this morning. When I entered the race I was in top form & planning to go sub-80 for the first time, however things have conspired against me since my last marathon and I've not been feeling too good as I've been suffering from more than a few aches, pains, cuts & bruises lately. So, under my revised estimation, as long as I finished under 90 minutes this morning then I would be happy.

For the first time in my life I started a race in the Elite section and when the race began I started to bang out the miles as well as I could until they started to hurt... The first 5 miles were out of the way in under 30 minutes, then I started to slow... 15 minutes to get through the next two miles, before I got a second wind & kicked on again. By the time I'd hit 11 miles I knew I had a problem - big achilles pain on the right ankle & I'd lost the feeling in my left foot... I got to the 13 mile banner - and stopped dead. People were shouting at me to get moving, that the finish was just around the corner, that I was nearly there... But the pain in my feet was killing me... So I bent down, removed my shoes & socks, felt the life suddenly flood back into both feet - and I ran the final 200m in bare feet - Abebe Bikila stylee... Finishing time? 1:26:22 Get-In!!!
