Mr B's last big run (2hrs 30) is pretty wet but rather successful. But then there's a taper-crazy 'duff' run and I officially start #thelongroadback. Oh, and the sun shone.
A lost long run for Mr B, more swimming for me. Almost taper time. I'm getting excited and I'm only cheering!
Snow and icy winds will not thwart Mr B and my heart is warmed by the lovely Harrow AC crew.
PLUS an awesome massage... who knew that looking after a small person made you so tense! Basically I'm doing squats holding a 7lb weight, going up and down stairs a lot and sitting feeding in less than perfect posture-positions, so lots of knots to work out.
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
