Club session was 3 x 2.2km last night, which I did in lieu of the P&D session. Our loop is a bit undulating, but I'll take 8.23, 8.20 and 8.21 - consistent if nothing else! Off for 6M easy shortly and then a sports massage.
TT: current band I have in mind is 2.47-2.52, although I'll take a final decision once the weather forecast is a bit clearer. Beeb currently think up to 18 degrees, although hopefully the 7.30am start will deal with the worst of that.
Yes, Chicago is the 9th. Last session last night: supposed to be 3 x 1M but club session of 3 x 2.2 km was close enough, and certainly easier than solo efforts! It's an undulating loop, but I was certainly consistent: 8.23, 8.20 and 8.21 for the 3 loops.
Off for a gentle 6M shortly and then sports massage this afternoon. Will work tomorrow in lieu of achieving little today.
Great news about Boston, GD. It's on my list, although it would have to be a year when my club hasn't got aspirations of a team title at London (or if I'm too slow to have a chance of being 3rd scorer!).
Just about got 5 miles with 6 sets of strides done. Got back home post-rehearsal and realised the schedule said 10 sets. Ah well.
I use a light backpack that holds up to 1 litre. I only take water if I'm running over 15 or 16 miles and it's warm, so it doesn't get used very often. It's convenient to have a few small pockets on the backpack for keys/gels, etc. I don't like holding a drinks bottle in my hand as it means that you're carrying the weight of the water on one side, not distributing it evenly.
Great report,GD - sorry it's taken me a while to read and digest. Great that you mustered that sprint finish to bag the sub 3.10. Hope that you are now close to walking comfortably
Busy week at work so far, and thankful this is the week of P&D which has a 4 miler (done on Monday). Got home from work just before midnight yesterday, so no run, but hoping to squeeze 5-6M in between the end of work and an orchestra rehearsal. Pfft.
