    Thank you so much for your supportive and encouraging comments from my last blog (it seemed wrong to type "last post"...!) 

    I had a session in the gym yesterday and a 60 min steady run is planned for today, but the physical side was not the problem. However, I'm also pleased to report that mentally, I'm back on track. I tried not to over analyse the Garmin stats (Jim, you know what I mean, here!) I had a long chat with my husband, Jason about my training and I know the goal is Milton Keynes. I still have 6.5 weeks to go, so I'm in a good position to get back on the wagon and sort myself out.

    I received the email from Sussex Sport Photography, with Sundays photos.......I can laugh now, so I'm going to share a couple with you:

    This one was just before the water station before mile 17, where it all went wrong for me. Perhaps maybe, I'm just such a law abiding citizen, that I took heed of the road sign behind me, too literally?

    And this one was the finishing line: I think this emotion caught on camera is somewhere inbetween elation, pain, frustration and sheer bloody relief that it was all over!!

    Ooh, and get me, with my new found skill of attaching clickable links.......

    Thank you again.

I have realised that my Sunday run was a good experience in a brutal way (hard yards etc), and it sounds as if you might be doing the same with yours. Good on you! You're still a decent stretch away from MK, and so there's time aplenty yet. I'd say you're well on track. On a yard indeed.' added 19th Mar 2014
