Four. months since my last run - still waiting for the results of my echocardiogram and finding out what happens next.

Meanwhile, I can see my estimated VO2 max plummeting whilst my resting heart rate is going up and up!

In other news - this should be a thing...

Happy new year fellow runners. 2023 ended up being quite light on the running side for me, only managing about 1,400km (870 miles). A minor injury and having surgery on my sinuses gave me some foreced breaks. Otherwise, I just kept myself ticking over and took part in some races without any real expectations.

This year I'm straight into a marathon training cycle for Boston in April. So, it's time to take things a bit more seriously again. Thankfully winter hasn't really hit Toronto yet. It's much easier to ease into a training cycle when the weather is more favourable.

Did anyone manage to bag a pair of Nike Alphafly 3's in the Proto drop yesterday?

I didn't even try, but very keen to get my hands on the next release, hopefully in time for Brighton Marathon. There is conflicting info online, some saying Feb, some saying as late as April.

The 3rd iteration has had tons of positive reviews (i've yet to see a bad one) , I actually got on really well with the Alphafly 2's but it seems I'm in a minority. I really want to give the 3's a spin!!!!

They say never meet your heroes but a pleasure to catch up with @Garry Nelson's teacher today at Worthing for the first time in a couple of years and watch him glide around the turn and disappear into the distance!
21:15/73.57% a decent effort after 11 muddy miles on the Downs yesterday.

Bumper day for parkrun 643 at Worthing, 450+ at Hove Park and more than 800 at Hove Prom!!!

In other news, I have a place for London🫤
