Woohoo, hip feels a lot better, was sore in the last race (25 May) but recovered well and hardly felt it after a 40 min run yesterday. So I think I'll start running again more regularly (though lightly). Next race is a week on Wed, should fit in a couple more easy jogs before then. Depending on the dates, I'm tempted to think of Manchester next spring as a warm-up race for the 3 peaks, otherwise there is no marathon in sight for me...

10k pb yesterday!!! 35.22. Also meant I finished in 3rd (first ever podium place) and won £10 and a bottle of wine. First time I've run sub 36 in 2 years and beat my previous pb by 5 seconds. Was a tough race. Went with the leaders for the first mile but was way too quick and then I was stuck in no mans land about 20 yeards behind 3rd until 9k when I pushed hard and ended up having a 150m straight sprint to beat him by 1 second.

Training going well, did a steady 12 today at sub 7 pace and felt very comfortable and easy even after racing yesterday. Low mileage week so feeling fresh.

Great stuff Roberto. I want to get my half, 10K and 5K times down now, once I've got current cycle of longer races out of the way. :-) G
