For the avoidance of doubt and to allay the fears of those reading my earlier post, The Road To 3:45, that wasn't me doing a Paula Radcliffe impression. This is me.
Training has gone well since the Royal Parks Half on 12th October 2008. That day the temperature was somewhere between 21C and 23C and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Almost every run since has been done in the dark, in the cold and, mostly, in the rain. Winter is here.
There'll be no more running in shorts for a while.
