Where in the world have I been...
Well to be honest with everyone I haven't been anywhere. It's been a busy last 3 months both at work on the home front and it's only been in the last few weeks that I have been able to run properly again.
I had promised myself at the end of last year that I wouldn't leave my calendar blank but until pay day comes I won't be able to flesh out the rest of the year especially as the running fund has pretty much run dry due to other priorities :)
So for now it's time for a bit of local racing with the Brentwood 1/2 marathon tomorrow. I have done this race 3 times previously (2009, 2010 and 2012). I have improved from a 2:00:09 to 1:34:09 last year so is there a chance of going faster than this..well the jury is still out on that.
With the weather taking a turn for the worse the past couple of days it's going to be both very windy and potentially icy on the roads therefore going faster than sub 1:34 is something that will be assessed in the morning.
It's really great to be running in a race environment again as it's been far too long.
