Afternoon all. I have been sort of lurking but not posting much as life has been pretty busy. Got my first cross-country of the season under my belt on Saturday (finished 9th, but out-kicked for 8th) and gradually building the miles back up: 46M last week and should be fairly similar this week. Club session on Tuesday, too, so re-introducing quality work.
Will try and read back a bit whilst I eat my lunch!
I am alive and well, just been a bit busy. However, made it down to club session last night for 6 x 0.55M. Great fun to be running around random bits of a field in the dark again! Calves are shot this morning, as I also raced XC on Saturday so it's rather a lot of running in spikes after a very long time not running in spikes.
I did half of my club session last night: 2 x 2 mins, 2 x 4 mins, 1 x 6 mins (second half was the same again in reverse order). I covered just under 3M in the 18 minutes and figured that was enough volume for a first attempt at running fast again, especially as I'm popping up to Leeds for the Abbey Dash on Sunday. Legs didn't feel too awful, but a little bit of tightness just towards the end of the 6 min rep.
Sounds like a fun (?) day out at the Coastal. Rather you than me, though: the thought of even having to contemplate any sort of navigation on tired legs with a frazzled brain fills me with dread! Hope you are both recovering well!
5M easy this morning, at a surprisingly sprightly 7.43m/m. Guess the legs have almost recovered from Chicago, then!
