I had an excellent run today and it was such a relief. I have had one of those really nasty dips in form which had me worried. It's not that I'm concerned about my next scheduled race. That is the Oslo marathon at the end of September and I'm not going to really start a training schedule for that until the end of June. It's just that I hate the idea that the work that I've put in over the last few months isn't leading to improvement.
I had an excellent race with my brother in Exeter which was probably the most important race for me this year even though it was a half marathon. It was his first, but it was the experience of running it with him and helping him get through it that meant so much.
Anyway, tonight was a 55 minute 10 km so that was not bad and I'm back to feeling good about my form again.
