Training has been pretty good this week.  New sneakers are making me fast LOL!  Last weeks tight hamstring has settled down after dedicating time every day to stretching & foam rolling.  Saw the physio for a follow up on my biceps tendinitis & he was really happy with the progress.  I'm allowed to do anything & everything so long as I take it easy to start with & listen to my body!  Not much else to report really.  I've completed pretty much 25% of Marathon training this week.  All good!!!
