Why - 12.5 hilly miles yesterday so today ought to be a rest day really
A bruised and battered LizzyB wishes everyone racing tomorrow GOOD LUCK (esp at Worksop - top race)
That's not a rest day Lizzy!
At 6 o clock I grasped the nettle, put on a white Tshirt, reflective vest, flashing armband and a headtorch and left with the family verdict on my attire ringing in my ears:
'You look ridiculous.' (husband)
'...a complete twerp.' (teenage daughter)
and did 5 miles at 1/2 m pace along dark country lanes. On the way home a car slowed down behind me - it was my husband, redeeming himself by nipping out to the offie for some wine. Cheers!
Well done Laura
Managed 2.7 miles at about 7:40 per mile on my recovery run.
