PP - indeed This has been a bit of a random week with the hols and travel (4 days so far have been 2, 0, 14, 8/12), but the end total should be a good starting point for the last 9 weeks. Quality 5k btw. I'm particularly impressed with you hitting 5m/m for the last 2km of it.
Oh, also meant to say, I did try a short run just before midday one day as it was a slightly drier heat by then. After just 30mins I was wrecked. Turns out it was 37 degrees, so not an experiment I repeated!
I only had a very quick scan back, but it looks like some excellent training has been logged over the last fortnight. Dr D in particular seems to be really coming along.
SL - noted re: Budapest. A quick look suggests you should be competitive towards the front. I want to do Prague for similar reasons (post race food and drink, plus my wife is Czech). The kids have been asking about coming to a European one to watch, so we may do similar next autumn (everything is already booked for this autumn). I hope the heart flutter is nothing serious.
Dachs - nice time at Yateley. Don't go putting too much into me 10k wise this year though, will you? I want to have a reachable target when I next do one
I've been noting the BAC session comments with interest again. Some of them seem spot on for what I need as the standard MP only sessions leave me short of LT work which I need to do, so I'll probably try a couple of the mixed sessions to see how I get on with those.
I'd hoped to ideally run every second day and have it done before breakfast whilst we were away so we could get on with the day, logging ideally 80-90 miles across the 2 weeks. In practice I knew this was a touch on the optimistic side as I struggle with my asthma in high heat/humidity and even at 6:30am it was 27+ with over 90% humidity. Ended up bagging 58m which will have balanced out some of the all-inclusive
Had a ball of a time though and ready to crack on now for 9.5 weeks to Frankfurt. Picked up a Cohiba cigar as my 'carrot' for my next marathon target (breaking 5:30m/m avg). Hopefully I don't have to wait as long as I did for the sub-2:30 one.
