I've not been running for about a month now. I'm cycle commuting instead having not done so for a few years for various reasons...covid lockdown, furlough, redundancy, working away etc.

I've managed to build up to 120 miles a week over the past month. The cycling muscles are slowly returning and I've been loving it in this great weather and getting a good buzz from it.

Too knackered to run as a consequence though...so the next plan is to add a couple of runs a week too, but only when the weather cools down a bit!

Wythenshawe Parkrun in 25:12 this morning. It was warm, but beautiful weather. My next Parkrun will be my 50th, and I will aim for a PB, which at the moment is 24:04. Not sure if it is achievable, but I'll give it my best shot. Strategy will be to start near the front so I don't get slowed down by anyone. Also I'll go for a fast first km to give myself a target for the rest of the run.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Not sure if anyone is following but the Western state 100 miler is currently around the half way stage.

Some of the leaders have been running sections of the race posting 7:10 - 7:20 miles. Absolutely incredible over the distance and with it being incredibly hot also.
