What the hells happened to the training regime. You start off the new year with all the good intentions in the world and then bang, up in smoke it goes. Yes I was going to waltz round the Barcelona half in 1:50 ish, but then reality. Not enough running, too much supping and eating and the result is the silly Buddha to your right. OK, the sharp eyed amongst you are probably saying "that's not Bob, far too thin" (cheeky monkeys). However, its now time to plan for the year ahead, what with holidays and races coming up. Cutting down on food and upping the fitness.
Anyway, enough of this self pity, Barcelona was brilliant, with a record number of members being there. Although I struggled with the run and got in at 2hrs 04minutes, I really enjoyed the weekend. You HAVE got to see that cathedral to believe it. I have and I still don't believe. In fact there were a few of us doing Victor Meldrews that day.
Supporters, as always were brilliant, although I do hear that one didn't actually get out of bed until we'd finished. Answers on a postcard please.
We are looking ahead to some great events this year, what with MRC being 30 years of age. Let us know if you have any ideas.
