Keep Calm and Carry On

Things are looking OK at the moment when it comes to my training and general fitness improvement since the beginning of the year.

I have been able to get in some good quality Long Runs with a 30 miler in freezing conditions with the promise of a 45 mile trail run in 8 days time. I am averaging 10km a day (Note averaging) even with a small gap caused by icy conditions. I am however a little worried with my feet as they are a little sore at the moment which is obviously caused by running in my VFF Monkey Feet so concerned that I may be doing more harm than good

Tonight I smiled when I realised (again) that some of my numerous ultra buddies are just as bad as me with measuring distances, planning and having personal goals. I worked out that as of 15th February 2013 there will be only 100 days to go before the start of the race and published this fact of the GUCR community page to which the replies went:

Allan Rumbles : "46 days to Wales Jezza!!!!"

Christian Hottas: "and just 79 days to Hannover..."

Jerry Smallwood: "and 8 days to St Peters Way"

Each with personal goals but so so supportive, I find it quite warming that we are such a disparate group of peoples but so similar in outlook when it comes to our chosen sport. Don't Panic.
