HS 14 miles is a pretty decent training session your training seems to be going well for the New Forest 10 miler next month. Glad to hear your t shirt is now spotless. I must admit I’ve never heard of Diane Leather, was that her only claim to fame or did she go on to have a successful running career? Thinking about it, you never hear about female runners of that era. Was that because women runners were not recognised by the athletics establishment at that time? How things have changed (fortunately).
Red: well, no more RED for you now May is over. What is your next challenge? Hope your ankle has settled down now.
WtnMel - it is irritating isn’t it when you have a day where nothing seems to get done, but the presumably both the workman’s visit and your computer job were necessary so at least you’ve got them both out of the way at the same time. Hope your run goes well tomorrow. Although I don’t particularly like road running I agree with you about the smell of hot tarmac. It reminds me of when I was about 4yrs old and the council was re-laying the tarmac on our street. It was a lovely summers day and I sat on the pavement to watch them. I can still remember the heat from the sun and the smell of the tarmac. Happy days.
I didn’t do the trail race yesterday after all. I slept badly through the night and felt shattered when I got up so after a lot of “yes I will” and “no I won’t” conversations with myself I decided it would be a bad idea to run when I knew I hadn’t the energy or enthusiasm for it. (Sensible hat see). Instead I went for a 6 mile run today which was fine, although very slow. I’m really struggling with pace at the moment, I must start doing some speed work again.
