Summer Time

School’s nearly out for Summer so I will have time to run at last. From being essentially an age-graded  National level marathon runner at the end of the 50/50 marathon challenge [and still in sub 3:20 marathon shape as late as last October] a full 9 months of day to day workload has meant I have become less than a jogger in 2017, so far.

This weekend’s Spitfire Scramble event highlighted how much work I now need to do to get back my running legs! I mean 6 miles x4 in around 50 minutes each time over the 24 hours has left me with legs as tired as after a marathon.

Amazing how much your fitness can fall if you stop exercising regularly!
