Well, I'm back on track after my bout of diverticultis, though my 10 Mile race in a month's time still seems pretty daunting. I had to take a week off in the end and jogged a pretty staid 4K on Thursday to get back in the swing of things. This weekend we're in Tenby where my 'boy' Matt is competing in another Ironman, so I thought I had better get on board and find a local Park Run. Corby is a really nice friendly run with only about 70 runners. It consist of 3 laps around a National Trust Garden- quite pretty, but a bit damp after torrential overnight rain and quite hilly too. I should have worn my trail shoes as it was all gravel and slippery bridges -obviously the wrong shoes were what slowed me down ;-). Anyway, not too disappointed with my effort even though I only beat a couple of people. I actually recorded my best age-graded score in a Park run at 57.83 and was first in my category (okay, only competitor but who cares ) I need to stick rigidly to a training programme for the next month but I will do 10 miles somehow, even if I walk most of it. In the meantime I have Matt to cheer on tomorrow. The dream is of qualifying for Kona next year. Hawaii would be such a cool plae to celebrate my 70th birthday!
