I'm very pleased to report I started my USA 2011 training plan today with a steady 5 mile run to Newcastle Race Course and back. Nothing spectacular, but it's a start. The aim is to get 50 miles done this week. It's so important to get things off to a good solid start and signal my intentions. Nothing less than 50 miles will do!
In the meantime, I've got the initial consultation with Coach David and Coach Mark on Wednesday. I've been asked to keep a list of everything I eat and drink. They will no doubt cast a critical eye over it at the meeting. It's only got 4 days worth of information on so far but is already spread over 2 pages! Oops!
