And It's Kick Off

I've just nicely started colouring in the squares on my training spreadsheet; week 1 of 2011 was kicked off yesterday with an easy-steady 10 miles under dull grey skies. Mr Runningbear was my trusty companion and shared my fatigue following the efforts of Tricky's magical mystery run on Sunday. The 'undulations' over 20 miles nearly did me in.
I'm hoping the last 24 hours are recovery enough to face this first intervals session of the New Year. The 1k intervals; half flat, half uphill should get the legs and lungs burning with a return of sub zero temperatures. I always get nervous on tough days, not sure why... I'm probably just anticipating that sicky, lung bursting feeling that follows running at near enough full throttle. I've got butterflies in my tummy at the thought. Wish me luck.

Blimey Sarah, it sounds as if you've really hit the ground running again after your enforced rest. Don't overdo it!
Here's wishing you and Marc all the very best for 2011 and good luck in all your races.

Good luck RB. It's natural to get nervous and if your not nervous before a race or hard session there's something wrong. The experiences of last year hopefully taught you about your physical limits. This time you should be able to stop just short. Barring bad luck 2011 could be your year.

All the best.

By the way - is that Rombalds Moor?
