Jesus SG - You must feel cursed! That must have been really gutting
Good stuff PeteM, good luck in the mile, the extra carbs should help.
I've had another quite low alcohol weekend, just one bottle on the train Friday night and only a couple of the alcohol free Erdinger over the actual weekend.
Did 8 reps over the track over the road on Saturday lunchtime, horribly warm and sticky so did a 100m hard, 100m jog round top bend, 100m hard, 50m walk and 50m jog - trying to hit around 12-13 secs for the 100's.
Just did an hour on Sunday with Watford in mind. However it was after family swimming, which always seems to make it torturous. Perhaps you get a bit dehydrated in the pool? it felt worse than the 13 mile/10k combo last weekend!!
Finally - Laura Muir. What a girl, love the way she attacks races.
CW, SC2, I did the Luton 10K last year. As I recall, Ian K crossed the line hand-in-hand with another super-quick runner from Bedford, although the official results gave Ian the win! It is a tough course for sure, I was more than two minutes off PB pace. However, as I was one of the few runners who actually entered all 3 races of the Luton AC Series (5M, 5K, 10K), I picked up a trophy for 3rd overall in the series! I decided not to enter this year since I am also training for Chicago!
14M this morning at 7AM. Already stupidly hot!
ES, CW - That was Darren Deed from Bedford & Co. Both him and Kimpton are sub 30 guys, IK has been out for a while though, I train with him at Luton - followed him round 10 x 600 last night on the track.
Good luck with Chicago - my two mates Chris & Pete are going, so if you spot two blokes with 'lovely' purple and yellow Leighton Buzzard AC vests on, that's them. The vests stand out well at least . Its Pete's final major one too.
Padams - Defo doing the 1500 next week - got a 3,000 at a BAL in a few weeks to try for a PB and I think i'll also have a go at Watford on 24/8 too. Quick time last night..
ML84 - Sorry, only had about 5 hours sleep. Trying to type with the Ipad in bed that is..
SG - Great reps, looking good now, nice 400's. Btw - I put 8.50 down for the 3,000 last year and was in the B race! Although that was good as I was at the front with Paul Adams and Tom Conlon from St. Albans.
Dean - yes there is about a 5 second lie usually. I think i'll put 4.05 down anyway, think I did that last time..finished 2/3 way down the pack.
