Big read back..
Sol - gah that's annoying. Recover well.
Ropeladder - glad you're feeling better
Cal - sounds like you are managing your issues well. Never been overtaken on a training run by fancy dress runner.
Cotswold - sorry to hear you have been unwell. Missed sessions is annoying but take the positive of the recovery to your body. Reassess if required. Well done on 20 more banked.
Zippy - hope you can make it. Try and enjoy it if not going for your A target
Colin - staying positive is the hard bit when taking a few days off. Think happy thoughts - like the beers post race
RobertO - wise words there, most of the training is done now. Training benefit won't have an effect three weeks out. Legs heavy is normal at this stage... Screaming out for the taper.
RobertF - oh no! Hope fizz helps.
Heidi - have had a few carp runs but equally some positive ones too... Goes without saying but forget the carp ones. 20 on a treadie - different gravy that!
Shuka - nicely done with another long run banked. Steady on the PB hunting in low key races this close. Cotton wool time.
Northender - nice 20 in lieu of the HM. I missed Wilmslow on Sunday due to cancellation but wasn't that bothered tbh. Nice reps today too.
Took 7 days rest as hamstring and legs in general felt terrible. Wilmslow was cancelled but I wouldn't of run anyway and I can't make the rescheduled date this Sunday so no tune-up race.
Popped out for 10 tonight as hamstring seemed to have settled. Legs feel zapped but hamstring didn't twinge which is something.
As others have alluded to... Legs are trashed but want to get another long run in as it'll have been 2 weeks since last and confidence needs topping up... Need to put the hamstring to the test a little.
