Track, trail and snow.
Track and Travel.
A fantastic trip to see the team from Limassol Marathon which consisted of a lot of eating and a little running! More cross training, less running sadly but feeling good on it. Mr B is getting paster all the time, he's getting faster all the time.
The week started badly with an easy run that felt easy, then got twinge-y and then included and unscheduled meeting between knees and pavement. Hobbled home feeling sad for myself but very glad that the hitch-hiker was is no danger at any point (also had a hospital appointment anyway that afternoon which was a nice extra check). PSOAS / groin still giving me grief so took extra rest days towards the end of the week. Hoping this isn't the beginning of the end, as I'm really craving hard runs and sessions now. Sigh. Still, I can make it to track and I can live vicariously through Mr B, who put in a great showing at the London XC Championships on a drizzley Parliament Hill on Saturday. It was great to be on cheer-duties with Simon and Lorna.
Remembering why I love running with other people - great to get back to an Adidas Runner LDN session, but missed Track due to a busy week. Mr B ran his second XC race in milton keynes and I ended the week having to swap miles for conditioning due to a creaky PSOAS / hip after overdoing it on Friday. oops.. 24/40
More miles than last week and a teeny bit of threshold work, but also a painful heel and feeling zonked on Thursday morning. I honestly thought on Thurs AM that this was it and I wouldn't be able to runcommute anymore but the run home was fab, so onwards, ever onwards towards the finishing line. 22/40
