Slow Ponds

As per last week’s post, we moved to Fritham for Tuesday’s run. I was pretty tired having cycled in to work as well as racing in the afternoon. I was therefore particularly despondent to see Neil doing multiple laps of each of the six ponds! I still can’t decide whether to run the Clarendon Way Marathon at the weekend – whether it will just tire me out further or will prove good training. It would help if I believed that I might actually manage to run round at less than top speed, but then I start to think, why not just go for a training run rather than enter a race?

    if I am ever fast enough to do multiple laps of Eyesworth pond then you
    could feel despondent. Otherwise I think that if I had been racing at lunchtime I would have been slower than you. Plus I am off to sicily to eat pizza and drink wine for 5 days so I should be considerablely slower on my return.

      Ah – glad to hear you are intending to put in some negative training! Have a good time and don’t forget to bring back a good bottle for us to have at the overnight camp (I think pizza might be pushing it though!).
