out with the friendly club tonight
there is a chap, P, who is a vet of some considerable years who has decided he will look afterme - which is really nice, he is happy to plod round with me, chat adn encourage
so we repeated our run from 3 weeks ago, but I did not stop for stretching and only walked to cross roads and up the steep bridge over the island - much better than a week ago and about a minute quicker for 3.2 miles :>)
I really must make the effort to get there every week - it is so good to run with someone who keeps you going
in response to pixie's plans, I have nothing so structured
I have Hal Higdon's beginner schedule to work on - but trying to make my long runs build up a bit more than he does - he only goes to 10 miles the week before the race, I would like to get a bit closer to 13.
So I am trying to run 4 times a week - plus if possible, a session at the gym for core strength, plus my core stuff I can do at home or in a hotel room - asssuming there is enough floor to lie down on!
And eat properly too - that has been a real struggle recently.
