Haven't checked in since Thursday last week so afraid I can't comment on everyone! But TR, that is a very tidy run in those conditions and indicates well under sub-3 shape I reckon.
Some very good long runs but lots of you as well (SJ, Jools CW etc.), which must have been tough in the weekend's weather (the wind).
Just the 3 races for Jooligan in the weekend as well!
WTGY - that does seem to break up the long run to make it seem quite manageable. Once you've done the 4M out-and-back, you'd be thinking "just 3M out, run back and then nearly done" (as the last two legs are so short).
On Friday I got a fairly bad cold (from mini-Padams no doubt). Usually I carry on training when I have a cold, but I also had a slight headache that got a lot worse when I bent down, and my legs were aching just walking around on Saturday. So I took the whole weekend off running and only got 15M done for the week.
6.5M off-road yesterday lunchtime felt fine though so I think I'm clear to get back into it. Have entered a local HM 2 weeks on Sunday, so that doesn't leave me much time to get in shape, but hopefully I can get some miles in this week and next (although both weekends we have lots of social stuff going on) and then have an easy week before the race.
I could do more on the road I suppose, but there aren’t many
footpaths on the narrow back roads where I live plus at least with parks I know where
the toilets are!
OO - unlucky with the toe. At least it's not a bad time for a break (pun not intended) following your recent marathon successes.
9M last night inc. some efforts on the track (4x(1200, 200 jog, 400)). Felt de-lurgified so I can get going with the proper training, although I won't be able to do anything today due to work and then family stuff.
