PJF - good effort on that 13 miler - not any easy session. Love the anaerobic fruitcake! KR - good late night park run The Newark event is part of the Newark Castle Festival of Running - first one I think. It's also on a Saturday which suits me. GD - all good interview experience even if you don't get the job. Well done on the track session. Abbers - nice tempo run. Jools - just to run would be good Lorenzo - not to fret - that's still a decent pace for the moment. Yes, Germinal is excellent, although it might also have been Ant who recommended it. I remember finishing on an aeroplane and had the weird experience of changing time zone back one hour and finishing it one day although have read some of it the next if you see what I mean! Poacher - Not sure if it's long enough to read War and Peace unless you skim read! OO - no sense in peaking too soon! Bike It - glad to see someone is getting in the early morning runs while I'm on the bench! My back is slowly improving again, but tonight I have to move some more furniture this time to decorate my daughter's room - I'll make sure I get some help this time
SJ - thanks. I've just spotted a new event two weeks later than the Shakespeare held in Newark (Nottinghamshire that is, not New Jersey!) Not likely to be the same profile as Raceways, but an added bonus is that it's only 1 hour away instead of nearly 3! Need to check the date with Mrs GD first though... Not too long till Frankfurt now - I'm looking forward to your report already!
Apologies for not reading back, but congrats to BI on the new 10k PB. And best wishes to GD - sorry to hear about your redundancy. Hope you can find a new job that is really fulfilling. Things not good here on the running front. My back had improved and was hoping to get back on the road this week, but I was moving furniture around after the usual Bank Holiday decorating and am now back to square one. So that's now three weeks of low mileage, 2 weeks off near enough, and probably another low mileage week when I do start back. Autumn Shakespeare is looking less and less likely unless I just use it as a training run.
Abbers - well done slotting in the turbo session and nice tempo run. PJF - that's a cracking pace for what sounds like a low HR. KR - good late night steady MLR and nice hill work. VTr - sounds very promising. Rest day no 3. I am convinced that my problem is back related. Getting the usual muscle niggles which I get whenever I haven't run for a while, but lower back pain is more concerning. Just got to rest and hope I've not done any serious damage. I am prone to disc inflammation and on a number of occasions it has taken weeks to clear up...
