|September ends as brightly as it began|
Cycle commute, about 10 miles round trip
Kent AC training, warm ups, then lampost hill, with downhill sprints
Cycling from work to athletics track for club training is always a challenge. Your body tells you it's tired, but the fatigue is only really in the mind. Your body is perfectly capable of warming up round the track, then working on downhill sprints in the local park. And so is mine. I scorched down that hill and for a few seconds felt like I was flying.
We are a big group now, being coached by our lovely boss, Adrian, After the downhill sprints we were arranged into pair for relay races round the Ladywell Fields circuit. It was an absolute killer, but you ran your hardest so as not to let your relay partner down. Afterwards, the endorphins whiz about the blood stream and we're all half in love with each other. There is no feeling like the post session camaraderie in a running club. We had a couple of beers afterward, by way of saying farewell to a member who's moving to West London.
It has been an eventful training September, and October, the first half at least, has plenty to recommend it, running wise. Caroline gave me my number for the Bournemouth Half on Sunday. My next challenge. 10514.
