Almost there now ... one more training run, two more sessions of strength work, two of stretching and no more cycling.
And plenty of rest.
Glad to be able to report that last weeks selection stresses have been resolved and it's fair to say that good old fashioned common prevailed. I would like to think that all sides have learned a few lessons for the future though which can only be a good thing.
The weather has been excellent in Yorkshire for the past few days ... warm and dry with sunny spells. I'm not sure it's going to last until Friday though but I don't expect it to rain as much as it did last year ... PLEASE.
Apparently there are a few other races this weekend, so ... all the best to all the runners but especially: Richie Cunningham, Adrian Stott and Paul Tranter in the West Highland Way Race; Jez Bragg in the Western States Endurance Run (Western states 100); and Racheal Bamford in the UKA Olympic Trials (1500m).
Hope we all have a good one.
