After illness last week, my knee has decided it wants attention now.
Literally. Picked up some sort of stomach bug or food poisoning on Monday and couldn’t shake it until Friday.
Big challenge this week by racing on one evening then an ultra the next morning.
Getting back from holiday feeling sluggish and bloated meant an easy return to it.
Had grand plans of running a lot while away on holiday and keeping some stable mileage going. Didn’t happen.
A nice varied week with a Friday night trail race followed by parkrun then a 23 mile long run was a good mix up.
After the long day out on the Billy Bland relay, it’s been a nice easy week capped by my third first place at a parkrun this year.
I’ve been interested in attempting a solo Bob Graham Round almost from the minute I first heard about it. A good place to get a taste of it is the Billy Bland Challenge Relay.
The main highlight of the week is Saturday’s Billy Bland Relay leg so I’ll write that up on its own later.
With a week to go until the Billy Bland relay it’s not a good time to feel a bit strained but I had always planned an easy week in the lead up.
