Back on Track & when Nikki met Paula

Depending on who you ask,¬†the¬†answer to the question “How long should you rest up after a marathon” will vary, as with most things in life my motto is “If it feels right¬† – Just Do It.” So with Tuesday night being Fareham Crusaders main training night I decided to stretch my legs and get back into the groove. Cycling to work & back had certainly helped and apart from the dark clouds over head, I was¬†looking forward to running.

After a busy weekend for the running club, Fareham Triathlon, Netley 10K, Bognor 10K and our marathon there was much to chat about. The group I chose ran around the Summer time trial, a largely off road route which by now had glorious evening sunshine.

Running and chatting with¬†different club members is at the heart of a good club. We label ourselves as “All inclusive” and long may it last. I moved around the group and ran the later stages with my friend Nikki Smith who will be writing an article in our local newspaper, on the build up¬†to, The Great South run. This also included the launch with none other than¬†the current ladies marathon world record holder. She’s a great girl and I’m sure Paula is very nice too ūüôā

I definitely made the right decision to run quite soon after my marathon and for “The day Nikki met Paula” just follow the link to her great Blog….. “Happy Running”
