Been a bad few weeks for me with the running, first covid, then four days at a festival, now the Mrs is away until Sunday leaving me with the kids and no chance of a run, I'm like a coiled spring!!
Have the loch Ness mara in October but my fitness is well down from earlier on in the year and training time is getting less and less by the day, tempted to scrub it and do a long training plan for hopefully Boston in April.

Did my longest distance in a while last night (12k) - absolutely needed for both mental and physical reasons.
I always find that elusive runner's high at that distance and I've missed it.
Hopefully can start cracking out more and maybe look at my first half marathon in 18 months (last time I did not before I got my first bout of Covid).

Did the Colshaw Hall (near Knutsford) 10k today, about 400 or so took part.

Been trying to forget pace for a while and just worry about distance, so happy enough to complete it without any worries. Couple of nasty hills, and the one around 7.5k was a bastard!

6 weeks till the Great North Run, so plenty of training still to do!

2.5 miles yesterday at steady/easy pace. Took opportunity tonight after work to resume my HM training plan. Week 9 run 2 of 5 miles. Longest run in almost 4 weeks (nothing over 2.5) and first training plan run in over 4 weeks. Was 23 degrees but says felt like 30. Glad I've done it and didn't talk myself out of it after work

Is it the John L Parker plan you are doing?
