Thanks for posting all this, I knew only some of it; now I know the whole story & it's really inspiring and I can see why your recovery to become British Champion means so much to you.

Glad my chat helped: "No more daily coca-cola, bag of crisps, cake, flapjack, bag of sweets and maybe another coca-cola to keep me going at work. I’m not going to get as thin as Phil though".

- the first bit - ha ha! With that amount of snacking each day, any extra weight is clearly explained 100%; and second bit: definitely try NOT to get this thin, it's not a good look.....! (... it's not bad for a decent 10km road time tho ;) )

At our age, though, pacing is essential - resting is doubly important or recovery doesn't happen properly. Gone are the days of back to back hard sessions / hard weeks. Just ask Chas....!

But it is a big deal. In fact, it's f**king brilliant.
(I'd like to have been at the prize-giving but my dad isn't having a great year so we're not hanging around as much.)

Like! the fact that AP chat has been helpful, but more importantly, LIKE the fact that you're back where you should be - elbowing us fatter, lazier bastards out of the way down the run-in ! ;-) Keep it up, steady as you go!
