GD - if I remember rightly you ventured over to a certain wine bar in SW London from time to time in your youth
GM - that's good running in Spain. The weather here will hit you like a brick when you get home!
Nice double Hilly
Abbers - nothing wrong with backing off a session, better to get the miles in the bag I'd say
KR - well done on the prizes!
Mile intervals for me this morning - 4 of them with 0.25mile recoveries. As usual it was on the TM, progressive pace (first one 9.1mph or 6.35 min/mile, last one 9.4mph or 6.22 min/mile). New running shoes so nice and bouncy
Tomorrow will be a few miles in wind, and then I'm really hoping it quietens down a bit for Sunday when I have 20 planned, followed by Sunday lunch out at a local pub we keep meaning to try. Yum
I'm interested in the tips on running in Canary Wharf. When I start my new job in May I'll be based there so will be looking for routes to try - lunchtime runs mainly so 5-6 miles I would expect. Any tips would be good!
GD - hope you're not getting the lurgy. Take it easy. You too SJ.
On the mixed session I do cheat and do it on the TM so hitting the paces is pretty much taken care of. Plus to my shame there isn't a huge difference between my MP and HMP as I probably have the worst conversion rate going (or the best depending on how you look at it). My HM PB was set off 7.10 pacing, and my marathon PB was 7.24 pacing. In fact when I went through half way in London last year I clocked my second fastest ever HM . On the TM I do tend to run around 6.50-7's and just pretend I can run that for a HM - which I really should be able to do but just have never got it right!
