CW - cheers, they've been noted, sound good. Aiming to start some quality stuff this week. Aiming at a sub 1.18 at Fleet in March I think. Doable with the right training And a full xc season.....and staying injury free.
Wardi - be good to say hello to you before BM Talons are meant to be class yeah, Im thinking of getting some for the fells but I think theyre too narrow for me feet.
SL - that sounds awesomely bonkers, lol Where was that, near you?
PP - what's the latest with your injury?
Quick training question regarding half marathon training. Basically from here til March I'm going to be focussing on the half distance before adding in some longer stuff in the spring for some of the longer fell races. Can anyone suggest any good sessions they've done before, if anything for variation but obviously effectiveness.
I'm going to do the club session Tuesdays which is basically intervals. Then I'll probably aim at two other sessions on thurs and sat. So anything from hill reps, park run, tempo run (4-6@ half pace or just under). Think I want to try and get a weekly tempo effort in but any other ideas people have done/had success with. (Don't have access to a track really).
I like the look of that Lakeland 50 but I think I'll stick to my fell races, got enough of those to aim at. Looks like a great event though. There's a scafell pike marathon in summer too which starts/finishes in Keswick for those who fancied something else in the lakes.
Decent week of training so far without any top end running. Easing back into it off a tight hammy recently... a 4 on Monday, a 50 min bike hill session and 10 min row in gym, a 6m, a 40 min swim yesterday and another 6 this afternoon. Aiming at 10 Sunday. No quality running yet but some good all round fitness stuff.
Hope everyone has a good weekend, good luck to anyone racing, think TR is doing Gosport off the top of my head.
HR - Reading is fast and an ideal time leading into London. It has a big race feel to it too with lots of crowds out and the route is really good. Couple of decent hills in it but lots of downhill and flat. The last bit to the stadium can get pretty breezy but its definitely a pb course if you're in good shape.
