Have been tough going. Managed and 8 mile run the week before last with a couple of short runs during the week. Then 9 miles yesterday were really tough my legs felt like lead and really didn't want to go anywhere at all. Today they feel like they belong to someone else. We did a hill session with the running club last Tuesday and a three mile run on Thursday. Thursday was finebounced along and the run felt like no effort at all, but Tuesday was hard work as I had a stitch and really couldn't get my breath or my breathing right at all. Must admit I do feel rater tired and a bit lethargic.
I have had few days off and have been doing a lot of clearing out round the house in prepartion for getting some jobs done. Took a load of stuff to the tip, boxed stuff to go in the attic, got stuff to burn and some stuff for various charity shops. Believe me work is easier!!!
Apologies as we didn't make Blackpool yesterday. We had already decided not to run, but we were supposed to take Janice, but she has been ill so decided not to run yesterday rather sensibly as she will be doing London. Better for her to rest and recover than spoil her chances of London.
Today I've cleaned up, made a pea & ham soup, been to the cemetry with my dad and a couple of uncles to put a memorial vase on my grandmas and grandads' grave and pulled the bones of a training plan together for York in October. Back to work tomorrow for a rest.
Off for a catch up.
