Tim's and Steve's favorite British expression. Definition from Wikipedia as follows...

Adjective form from "ready for the knacker's yard" or "fit to be knackered", meaning "worn-out livestock, fit to be slaughtered and rendered".

That's how I felt this morning! Luckily Aaron was around to give me some company and we had a nice early morning run on the trails (8 miles at 7:45 pace). I'm hoping another little shakeout run tomorrow morning will have my legs back in some sort of shape for tomorrow evening's planned workout- especially as it is supposed to be 95 degrees and I'll be doing the bulk of it solo!

Interestingly my legs felt pretty decent for Sunday's 16.5 miler which I clicked off solo at 4.30 am at around a 6:50 pace. I'm looking forward to this next 'marathon specific' phase of my training. The mileage is going to rise and the length of the workouts increase. Bring it on!

  1. Apparently the great 70's British marathoner Ron Hill was "knackered!" all the time as I just read in "Lore of Running"...enjoy your Budic trip!
