Think it was fair to say that after achieving my sub 1:30 half marathon in April, my motivation and training had flat lined, I wanted to push on to 1:25, but it just wasn't coming. I'd picked up and put down many training books over the years and dismissed them all. Then Eric started tweeting about his new book, and i was intrigued. Took the bold step of ordering it on line having not even flicked through it in a book shop, so glad I did I was hooked from the first page :-)

So far, I've:

  • Introduced the slant board training
  • Bought a new GPS with HRM
  • Done my HR zone and speed zone runs
  • Done the sugar (and booze) detox - and boy do I feel better for that
  • Run a sub 6 minute mile (knocked some 15s off my mile PB)
  • Started run drill training
  • Lost 3lbs
  • Run thinking about form
  • Run with much less effort and struggle

And more importantly found my running MOJO again - sub 1:25 here I come :-)

Thank You Eric :-)
