The evening after my first long run since the half marathon and I feel much better for it. I was not intending to have such a long hiatus after the race but among other things a major health scare proved too much of a braking force on my training. It is some weeks before I have to kick the training into high gear for the marathon attempt so at least I have time to get back into the swing of things.
I watched some of the New York marathon on TV this afternoon while my kids rushed about around me. It was amazing to watch the shear speed of the elite runners, sadly I didn't get to see the mass run. Motivation is flowing freely having watched inspirational runners, had a good run, and most of all having received the good news this week that my worries were not (as I had feared) cancer. More running, more work, and more of many many things now.
