Nice going FP. Good to start getting the sessions under the belt!

I've been struggling a little with mojo since Xmas. Combination of no major events, very busy in work, house extension underway and two young children is making any sort of consitency very difficult! The difference this time (compared to similar periods of mojo loss) i think is my maturity. In that i mean i'm not letting it stress me out or get frustrated by it. I'm getting out when i can, i know that i currently need to lean on others more than normal i.e. booking runs with friends to ensure i get out as i found myself binning solo runs. Normally i'm happy to do 90% of my training solo.

Then, seeing a few of my friends running the Arc of Attrition on Friday/Saturday got all my competitive juices firing again!! I was (surprisingly) massively gutted to not be with them again this year, and whilst i loved dot watchign the whole thing it did really make me jealous!

So i am going to focus on quality for the next few weeks. It's going to be a while until things settle down at home and in work, so i know i can't get out 5/6 times a week. So concentrate on at least 3 runs, ensuring that one is a solid hill session. I'll try to get hills in at every opportunity, as my legs are lacking in their old strength uphill!!

We'll see how it goes! Feb already!!!!!

Glad I'm not the only one suffering from mojo loss!

Got a marathon in 8 weeks and I'm woefully under-trained due to shin splints and flu, though at least ill and injured at the same time prevents running too early and aggravating the shins! Silver linings and all that.

I'm hopeful of an interesting year though - a 24 hour event in Pembrey in May, a tilt at the Cotswold Way in September and then a 24 hour track race in November. The May 24 hour is more a night test than a full effort, so I'll have an easy Saturday, run through the night and then do what I fancy after dawn.

I still need to check what the UTMB points are going to be set at for 2020. I'll be 40, so I'm torn between Cham and having a go at Comrades.

Good luck for the marathon mate. I've had a bit of a quad issue which has been annoying. I have the Bramley 20 miler this Sunday. Hoping for a sub 3 but we'll see.

Ginger Bongo, I'm sure things will come good for you, it's just that time of year.

Do any of you guys watch the 'Film my Run' channel?

My 50 is in 4 weeks, I'm generally looking forward to it, despite only reaching 20 miles so far. I always knew it was going to be hard work but I've been enjoying getting out on the hills for some running including a night run with a few people from the club on Monday.

I've been struggling to motivate myself to do much cycling though and the weather hasn't helped.
