Hi guys, sorry I aint been around for a while, my foot has got much worse . Hoping to get to see a doctor tonight, its a nightmare to get an appointment at my docs, and darent ask for an hour off work - theyd shoot me! Went to see a chiropodist last night about it, read that it was £27.50 per half an hour! Anyways sat in the waiting room for my appointment for best part of 40mins and got mad and walked out! I'll maybe regret it after today but I have no patience.
Hows everyone doing I see theres lots of intervals etc going on!
Rachael- sorry to hear about the foot. Annoying when they charge you so much and then you have to wait for 40min... not acceptable. Hope you get it sorted soon.
Gobi- have been reading your blog. Interesting stuff. How does your coaching online work? Is it just people you know or do you actually have a website etc. And what do you need to do to get silver at the Comrades? Is it to do with the position or how many times you completed it?
8k recovery run for me tonight and a bit of core. Easy 8miles from work on Thursday and into work on Friday and hopefully a parkrun on Saturday morning before the eating and drinking commences. Can't wait to start the schedule now, I think I know it by heart
Mon: 18 weeks (on Monday) until VLM so you could start P&D right NOW!
Rachael: Hope you get it sorted soon.
NP: that's just awesome
Rest day for me...
NP- 15miles on the dreadmill...don't know how you do it. Sounds like you've done a bit of running this year
Hmmm I think it's going to be Copenhagen. There will always be time for London...
Gobi- They're 4 weeks apart (London on 22nd April, Copenhagen on 20th May). Surely there's no way I can recover enough to race both? I don't know if I fancy jogging one of them... not in my nature.
Nice race schedule you have there for the next few months... But I understand that when training for the Comrades, marathons simply become your long runs.
Lots of good running going on. Good to see you using time at work productively NP
15.10m in 1:59.28 (7.55av) for me tonight- lovely evening, if a bit breezy.
Bet you're pleased about that one.
I think I'll chicken out this time and stick to Copenhagen. There will be time for multiple marathons... I think I'd rather get my time down first and get a couple more years of running behind my belt. London is an option for 2013 but then I have also been contemplating Two Oceans in SA which take place in April. Decisions decisions .
8 miles home tonight without my 305 which I left at home- grrr.
5 slow miles this morning, ending with 6 x 100m strides. 80 squats (note to self...do these on rest days).
Still 2 days to think of an Xmas present for the better half...
Good shivers or bad shivers?
