Friday 21st April

We took our running kit to New York but, honestly, the prospect of running 12 blocks or so to get to Central Park at the end of a day's sightseeing that usually involved 6-7 walking was just so awful we decided not to bother. A week's rest with about 6 hours walking (and queuing - Statue of Libery takes a whole day. You have to queue to join the queue for the ferry and don't ask how long the ferry queue was) but what a place.

Last Week
Mileage: 13.1 Feet: 5200

Next Week
Somewhere in the Lakes on Saturday and something long locally on Sunday and a couple of mornings during the week to start to increase the miles. No alcohol from now on - does abstinence matter? Apart from dehydration that can be fairly easily overcome it inhibits glycogen production which impacts badly on recovery. Do you have to stop drinking to complete a BGR? Almost certainly not but (if you are a mere mortal) you have to do everything you can to increase your chances of getting round. You can only wish for good weather but for everything else there are choices and opportunities to make things just a little bit easier. Enough philospophy - need to sort some kit for this morning's run in the Lakes.
