Against my better judgment I seem to have been roped in for running the Manchester 10k. It was early in the morning. I wasn't fully awake.
This now presents me with the issue of using my lower limbs for something other than cycling. Something they haven't experienced for quite some time. In fact the last time I broke into anything more than a light canter was on cross country runs at school (circa 1947). And this was mainly an excuse to have a crafty fag.
I do quite a bit of riding... I commute every day... so i do have a reasonable* level of fitness
So.... give me some pointers please. I'm going to have to do some training I suppose. Or I may die.
*the word 'reasonable' is used figuratively, and only in direct comparison with the morbidly obese and 60 year old arthritics.
