Good day all. Another glorious day for a run, especially as yesterday I was hobbling around the house with burning pains down the back of one leg. I figured it was the sciatic nerve grumbling again, and lots of stretches and a good session on the (zero-impact) rowing machine seem to have sorted it out. All felt good this morning other than a slight twinge in the sciatic and bum area. So I can put my hamstring paranoia away for another day .
7.08 miles done incl a smidge over 6 miles at a fair but still aerobic pace, to the hrm. Newbury 10K on Sunday so didn't want to overdo it, especially after yesterday's episode.
They're only apologising and promising to reform because they can't do anything else, they were caught red-handed. They initially tried to bluster their way out with talk of prejudice, Russophobia etc etc, the usual crap when Russia is called out for illegal or immoral behaviour.
From the reports I've seen, they're even now obstructing the WADA investigation.
Russian sport is about as straight as a bottle of crisps. Chuck 'em out and let clean athletes have a go. A loud NO from me.
As regards pace, I've installed a thingy from the Connect IQ site that shows average pace for the past 60 seconds. I might adjust it to 30 seconds. The idea was to provide something usable between instant pace and lap pace. I'm also eyeing up a thingy that calculates your finish time during a race.
Is it just me or has the 920xt gone up in price? All I can see currently is £300 or so, I got mine several months ago for £250.
