On to the next (few) challenges

When walking home from work a few days ago I came across this story.

Why London Marathon will be Farah’s toughest test http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/26968962

and there was another London Marathon story too about tips for the race which included one from Paula Radcliffe which I’d used myself during the Silverstone Half – counting from 1 to 100 just to keep the mind ticking over.

This week has seen our first proper training week for our next challenges. For me I am mad enough to do a proper 10k race here. I’m not expecting anything beyond a personal best, although I’d like to not finish last too. The legs are definitely suffering a wee bit but maybe from doing something like 30km this week maybe they should be!

It’s all part of the challenge though, and it’s still all good.
