It was a beautiful sunny day as I set out on a long steady run over the big sand dune paths and through the pinewoods. 3/4 way into the run I noticed I could no longer feel my tongue it had become some what dehydrated, the sensation felt kind of scary.
Anyway I finished with 2 hours 11 mins and the first thing I did as got home was to drink a cool pint of water, aaah a pint of beer would have been nicer BUT....
Barry's put me through a tough week, what with 3 hard sessions plus a speed session. Next week sees me Race the Final Haigh Hall 4 mile hill race of the summer, this is also a club Grand Prix race Grand Prix Table[ I'm still leading the club G.P. by default, which is a bit embarrassing As I'm in charge of the G.P. this year].
After that there will be some more hard training before my major target THE HARROCK HILL RACE later in the month.
