Macca, great writeup and great performance
Very sensible AWC. Glad you’re feeling better.
Great reps Steve.
Nice double session HA.
Great report Macca. I definitely relate to your feelings regarding those 19 seconds. While I was overwhelmingly pleased with my result last year, those few seconds did niggle a little. I think it’s perfectly natural, and not ungrateful at all. Ultimately though it’s an entirely arbitrary time barrier, and regardless the performance is a fantastic one you should be very proud of.
Regarding London, I would be cautious about doing too much too soon. I found London straight after Manchester very tough, even when trying to run it relatively “easy” at sub-3 pace (which I had been doing happily in long runs). I do wonder if trying to push on too soon after Manchester is what began the stream of injuries I’ve had since then. With that said, you do have amazing recovery powers (there is no way I could have ran the day after Manchester), and you have an extra week compared to last year.
The Freestyle Libre sounds brilliant SQ.
Good luck again Jools, FBT, and TR. Really pleased to hear your dad has improved TR. Hope you can get some rest and have a good one at Brighton.
I’m ticking along ok, I still have the occasional vague ache at the top of my ITB after a run, but it’s improving each day. The sore throat didn't come to anything thankfully, and my HR was much better yesterday which was pleasing. I’m going to give parkrun a bash tomorrow as my first bit of faster running since Bath. My main goal is to avoid being lapped by SQ as he storms his way to first finisher
