Not been around these parts for a while,just checking in to say im still alive and kicking,cancelled my Nessie plans for this year due to Mrs YC expecting our first baby mid October.
Running wise ive still been going out every week and getting in between 25- 30 miles a week,didnt have any plans for races this year until a young lad i work with wanted to do Dundee half in July,hes never ran much before and im glad too say i give him advice on building up sensibly and on the day i paced him round the half in 1.57 xx,he was over the moon with that and so he should be,as i soon as i crossed the line the old racing buzz came back for me and have been thinking of entering the great scottish half in early October to see how close i can get to my pb (1.49.03).
Mrs Yc is fine with this even though its quite close to her due date so gonna make my mind up this week.
Consistent easy mileage has even put a little bit of pace back in my old legs again so alls good
