Summer Running

I’ve got three races to go until I’m off to the Chicago Marathon in October. The Bristol Half Marathon, Robin Hood Marathon and the Great North Run will all be very important performance indicators ahead of my race in the USA which follows.

I’ve just been down in Poole training with Liz Yelling and put in 90 miles last week – the most I have ever done in one week – so I’m really looking forward to seeing where I am in terms of race pace. I won’t be looking to set personal bests in the three races, but to see where I am versus the all important qualifying time of 2 hours 35 minutes for the World Championships in January.
