Last night I went running with a fellow club runner for the first time in ages. It was so much better, and I realised Solo Snicks = lazy lady. I was slowing down and had settled in to a bit of a patheitc plod. We did our eight mile run in 58, and as I've said elsewhere on the forum I've been nine min miling for the last few weeks, and settling into slowdom. I'm sure this is also due to training for a Marathon, but anyway, I digress. Bottom line, get out there with someone who'll push you a bit.
