Happy to back up yesterday's ride with another 36 miles this morning and pleasantly surprised that sitting on the saddle again wasn't as hard as I thought it would be
What: 7.5k with some stopsWhy: difficult to run and watch the race without stopping! The running that I did, though, was slightly quicker than usual. Quite a quick but decidely unexeciting two lap course around sunny Salford. And it was: nigh on perfect racing conditions.
LMH: keep hearing this particular song on the radio lately.
Mava: hope it was fun.
Catch up...5 miles Wed with m'boy, off road and fun but bit of a struggle. Thursday off as long haul to N Wales and back then today took him out for his hardest training run yet. 9 miles filled with hills....

That's a good result mava and I agree with Alehouse, a little taper will make all the difference.
Surprisingly good thanks Pammie.
Don't go injuring yourself in the garden Dustin - these domestic chores are dangerous!
Run your own race mava - you'll have a much better chance.
Well done Mava!
Why: Nice time with family.
Good running everyone!
Well done Mava - yes agree with LMH for the half all the best
Happy days.... Stayed over in MK last night as was originally meant to be going for a marathon PB..... that all changed a while back as you know injury got in the way (so dammed inconsiderate...)
However, we still went and I dropped to the half, a nice good move, and 3 and 1/2 laps later crossed the line with only a few aches and pains in 1:38:26, (well over a minute slower than PB pace).
Loved it, felt free was in 5th pace at the start (not inc the relay teams) moved up to 4th half way through the 1st lap, and stayed there till 12m once I had closed down 3rd place (that took over a lap to do) then put he burner on a tad to get and maintain the gap to finish in 3rd......
Splits - pretty good not sure where the 7:51 came from as didn't feel tired at 11m, and the 7:14 in the last mile was opening it up a little.... 7:28, 7:29, 7:24, 7:27, 7:27, 7:37, 7:40, 7:32, 7:34, 7:39, 7:51, 7:32, 7:14, .26
Good day now tired and aching......(in a good way)
Well done Mava
Well done Mava, and congrats on the podium place RFJ.
Quiet day here, and nowt wrong with that. No training, but Gobi will be pleased to hear that I got the MGBGT out, gave her a good greasing and topped up all the oil (that had leaked out). A blast in the countryside proved to be what was needed for the soul. Happy days.
Mava and RFJ, very good races today, we'll done to both.
I've been at a family gathering in Tighnabruaich today but managed 6 miles this morning. Slightly worse for wear this evening and very sunburnt. Great day.
