Round-up - 27th April

I hope the running is going OK - we've had some quiet days, with hardly any miles recorded, and some really busy days. All these Bank Holidays seem to be playing havoc with people's schedules, and some of you are understandably treating yourselves to some post-marathon rest.

The good news this week is that we've passed our next milestone of 833 miles, which has taken us across the French Riviera at Juan-les-Pins / Cap d'Antibes and out over the Mediterranean - and appropriately enough, this occured over Easter weekend.

Why is this appropriate? Well, way back when, when I was a half-decent runner, I used to go to the South of France for some warm-weather training with club-mates, staying just outside Antibes, and most years we went at Easter. And every year, we included a training run which took us from Antibes, to Juan-les-Pins, round Cap d'Antibes, and back to the beach at Antibes for a cooling dip.

We are now 938 miles into our journey, so are somewhere off the west coast of Corsica, approaching Ajaccio. Next dry land - Sardinia.

Good luck to anyone racing this week - BB at Lichfield and Chantelle at Keswick (rather you than me!) and anyone else I may have missed. Enjoy yourselves, and I hope it's not too hot for you.

Well done to Sheri for managing her 20-miler in this weather, and congratulations to Lisa for winning the Wirral Seaside 5k - I'm sure there'll be more wins in the rest of the series.
