Been a bit of a crazy period at work for those doing their returns, hence my absence.
Nice XC-ing, racing and training going on.
Nowt to report here - sneaky first finisher at the hilly parkrun last week, only 15 secs outside my course PB, which was pleasantly surprising given my lack of any speedwork whatsoever. First 20 of the campaign rounded off a 80mile week. Currently on 55M so far, a decent long run will get me back to 80 again.
Some marvellous racing going on, with the usual wins happening - pats on the back to one and all.
Bog all to report expect I am fat, and getting slower, thanks to the homemade mince pies from the M-I-L (Wardi - I too bought 3 boxes, and still have 3 boxes. Will save them for next year!).
Mileage stats copied from a fb post that some may have seen.
445 different runs 3276 miles 416 hours Average pace 7.52 per mile 3 marathons (a couple of sub 3's, but by far the most fun was at Windermere with Njord and LS21 as part of my stag weekend) 3 ultras (Perth 50k, the Fling, and Clyde Stride) A few 10ks, and 33 parkruns (including my only pb of the year, 17.54)
BTW - I ran every day last year, and am STILL to have a rest day!
Superb reports Dan and Ryan - sounds a lonely course, so well raced!
Nothing really to report here, just banging more commute miles in - 5 doubles last week, a short recovery run pacing at a parkrun (target 22, ended 21.54), and an almost 18 on Sunday to give 85ish for the week. Legs getting used the mileage again.
