Miles & Miles

We’ve still heard nothing back from the Burnsall race organiser but have since found that he’s on his hols until the weekend; a tense wait then to see if we can negotiate an entry or two for next weekend. I’ve been a bit thrown by the prospect of a change in plan (old concrete thinker me), it’ll definitely teach me to be less presumptuous and check out deadlines for entries – I’m normally so good at planning ahead but have always entered this one on the day and just assumed…

Tonight’s run was a bit of a break from the quality and instead a longer one was planned to build up the miles with a few little hills to keep things interesting. A 12 miler from Ilkley along an old favourite the ‘Beamsley bash’ featured tonight. M kept me company and stretched his long legs with a view to preparing for his duties as my marathon training partner. A steady & strong effort will only add to the building endurance and keep me nicely tired for the 5k time trial early this Saturday morning, [double yuck].

Hi,
I've just been looking at the Burnsall 10 entry form and it says on the back, at the end of the line where you sign it, 'Entries by 18th August'. So you still have plenty of time to enter.
Good luck. I may see you there.
Cheers!
