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 🙂

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”
