Wow i can't believe the last time i updated the blog. Since the relays I have done the Vitruvian although severe backache and tingling toes forced me to stop during the run. It shameful being seen walking in the race when your going in the right direction but walking back is worse!! the looks you get and the 'come on mate, keep going' comments don't really help. You want to tell everyone the reason you stopped is because you risk serious injury carrying on. Pay attention you young 'uns! Not finishing is starting become more frequent...well twice this year in two middle distance events. Not great!
But .... as I mentioned in a previous blog, you have to take away a positive. Well the positive is its now the end of the season and on reflection I have achieved so much on so little and its time to recuperate and build for next year. WOO HOO.
A quick summary of achievements - PB for half marathon (1:15) , 2nd in Ironman South Africa, 2:46 marathon in London, a course pb for a club 10TT , and a National Gold at the Club Relays with BRAT. Pretty damn good considering.
So my Infectious Diseases exam is in a few weeks then the training starts. Heres looking to a fantastic 2010!!!!
