Carrot - I tend to do long-ish intervals, anything from 800m to mile reps, with very slog jog recoveries. I don't worry too much whether I need 200m recovery or 400m or even longer! My pace on the TM gets up to 15kph, sometimes a little quicker, but I just don't have the legs for 16 or 18! Have fun at the XC champs

7 miles easy today - lovely cold, sunny day for it. My legs felt really heavy though - not quite sure why!
I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes to bed early. My alarm goes off at 5.20 (actually this week I've been getting an earlier train so it's a 4.50 alarm call!)....so if I am to function at all I need to be asleep by 10, often in bed a lot earlier.
Well done on the snow running Tiny
Malcs - hope you're doing well, sounds like you are injured though...hope it clears up soon.
Tempo for me yesterday - nothing too stretching, 5 miles at a progressive pace. And 6 easy this morning.
Some of the interval paces you lot are doing really puts me to shame. But I was listening to a MT interview today with Lorraine Moller (NZ elite marathoner from the 80s) who is an advocate of the Lydiard training regime - basically loads of aerobic stuff and hardly any intervals which suits me down to the ground
Minni - I sent you a text with OH's email address so you can contact him about the S&C stuff. Tri club sounds scary
Tempo this morning - never feels great first thing but good to get it done.
