weird..., as I was saying, on incredibly rough boulders and cobbles which has battered my feet. Good excuse not to run now though!
Who's racing this weekend?
I'm doing a 5000m on the track at Oxford tomorrow. I've dropped 12lb's in weight in 6 weeks so at least I won't have that to cart around.
If I get within 3 minutes of the pb of the lady I'm running with on Sunday, I'll be doing well.
Good luck tomorrow Ric, hope it isn't too warm for you.
Dean, great session and will hopefully give you the edge for Christleton.
I'm having a go at my local forest parkrun tomorrow to put the ghost of 5 mile past behind me. I was going to do a 5 mile RR 'Run the Bridge' over Runcorn bridge but I think a parkrun then a long Sunday run will be more beneficial.
Cheers Ss, heat is my friend. All my pb's were set in temperatures touching 26c in the shade, even my HM best.
The fact is that our muscles work better in the heat, but not if you don't give them a good drink. One reason why hydrophobics cannot cope with summer racing.
Good luck ric
i recognised from this weeks training I'm short in conditioning so today I took a session from Daniels of 5*1m target 5.30 pace 1 min rec. I hit 5.28,5.28,5.30,5.30,5.31.
happy enough with that but needs more work as felt hard.
Another good session Deano, and yeah it will feel hard off 1MIN!!! That's a proper grim session!
I did a 40 min continuous tempo today, 20 mins @6:30 (MP) then 20 mins @6:05(HM). I felt really strong throughout which was a welcome change!
5000m in 18:35. Not fast but quite comfortable. Decided that sub six pace would be ok and that objective was achieved. Finished with a relatively fast last 200m.
Only lapped twice by one runner, lapped once by many others. Lapped one myself.
A long time since I could manage 5:30's for miles. Going well Dean.
Ss, encouraging that you're not ill today.
A good outing and nice to duck the sub 6 barrier. I found my only track 5K a very tough challenge mentally, much prefer the roads.
One thing for the disaster of Wednesday is it seems to have blasted the last of the lurgy off my chest and today is the first day I've not coughed or weezed in the slightest. Best of all I can now start singing in the car again! Touch wood I can stay healthy now.
Did a nice little 4.5 just now at dusk down the river. Lovely.
Any other Easter weekend racing going on?
