P&D prescribed 17M today but I had contemplated rounding it up to 20M. Changed that back to 17M once I discovered how bliddy windy it was out there. I was using a 1.25M loop (to ensure I was never running into a head or cross wind for too long - ha!) and twice on each loop I was brought to a standstill. How I longed for a tall, broad training partner as a windbreak... 17M at a plodtastic 8.37m/m. Felt aerobically easy but my tired legs didn't have the strength to battle the weather today!
I opted for the 17M P&D prescribed rather than the 20M I had planned as it was miserable out there: I used a 1.25M loop and there were 2 points on each loop where I was brought to a standstill by the strength of the wind. On tired legs I didn't see the point of a further 3M of resistance work and came home! 65M for the week. 1 more big week and then taper time. Can't wait to have legs that feel springy instead of sore again!
Sorry to hear there's no improvement for Speedy and that Ryan has had to take a tough decision, too. Disappointment for JH1, too, but I'm sure you and DanA can have a fun day out anyway. Please make sure he gets round this year
14M including 6 x 1M reps for me yesterday morning and legs were pretty shot from the off so the reps were only marathon pace instead of half marathon pace but not too bothered as breathing was the right level for marathon pace, so I know it was just tired legs. 20M to be done shortly. Not the nicest weather for it, sadly...
