Twas the seventh day before Stroud and all around was quiet but for the gentle crescendo building to a veritable cacophony of expectation ... what the hell?
It was an easy hour run today followed by an hour on the exercise bike at fairly hard interval level. The legs are well rested and the tightening calf problem seem to have disappeared with the easing down through last week. I still have a slight ache in my left hamstring, which has been there since June. It doesn't seem to get any worse so I just ignore it.
Finally, a quick mention to Phil and Helen who ran the Cardiff Marathon today, conditions were not perfect, a bit too much wind ... stop it, I'm talking weather here ... but they both managed to achieve their goals. So well done.
