Only four months to go this year but at least spring starts tomorrow and we hopefully get some better weather.
The problem with an ultra in the middle of a month is that tapering and recovery take away good running time, so the distance totals look very average. But I can remember may be 10 years ago, that 300 kms in a months was pretty handy. Now, I think, very slack.
Yesterday and today's running were curtailed by the beginning of the trial of the new bus ticketing system at work. I am caught up with being a test crash dummy to find the weaknesses in the system. It is still a trial, we have found a few technical bits that require adjustment.
Plenty of discussion eating into my free time, so only a couple of shortish outings on very nice days. Should pick up later in the week if the rain holds off. Could be wet weekend.
