Ha, I did mine a few days ago but had estimated my liability to within £100 so it wasn't too upsetting!
Nice mini session.
Just been out for my weekly tempo with 1m wu and cd then 8m alternating between mara pace and hmp. Splits came out 6.46, 6.13, 6.44, 6.04, 6.42, 6.05, 6.36 and 6.05. Average pace was 6.25 and average HR was a meagre 157, which is about my lowest for that pace and distance.
I've definitely had another hike in fitness this last 2 weeks. Every session and even just easy run I do is feeling easier and coming in faster.
Mine is pretty straightforward as I am PAYE. I just have to pay back child benefit which we keep forgetting to cancel and tax on a couple of medical schemes as my tax code doesn't cover it. I just set aside £150 a month and then a bit here and there to top it up such as the months we don't pay council tax.
Nope, no back ups of any kind until Autumn. It will be what it will be, all I can do is keep plugging away and building the fitness. It won't be wasted!
I used to suffer terribly with insomnia, Muss. A bout would go on for nights. Thing is then, it would lead to a sense of doom about bedtime and a downward spiral. I am much better these days though, no real issues over and above anyone in my age group.
I think the vaccination target is one thing they will hit and surpass quickly as they know it's the fastest way out. However, I think we'll be waiting a while for the leisure industry etc to open up. They have to learn from last August, where it was everything at once. Kids need to be back in school for a month or so, then they need to perhaps re tier the country accordingly.
I was reading the plan to have offered every adult a vaccine by mid September. Once that is done, fundamentally if we cannot operate as normal then, i'm struggling to see a scenario where we can!
