Yes Scott should be fine, weather looks a bit better than originally expected at least. Up early as getting the train down at 8, going to the usual 14 mile mark with the handy cut through to 20 just behind us.
Been busy on here the last 2 days, good PR from Dachs, Pete and Iron great 10 mile PB from SS among the highlights, we all seem to be getting there as such. Read through all the pages so apologies for missing out anyone!
So as expected at Bedford for the 1500 it was really windy down the back straight which was a pain. Doing a non scoring I was wondering if there was much point tbh, but why not I suppose. First 400 was a disappointing 69/70 so pushed up a bit into 3rd and hit 800 in about 2.17, a bit better. Got to the bell in about 3.06 and ended up with 4.17.6. Pretty pleased as wanted sub 4.15- the missus was chatting to Paula's coach Alec and he reckoned 1 sec per lap for the wind, so I'll factor that in (having that)
Suppose the most pleasing thing was my legs felt quite strong and unlacticy. The rest of the afternoon was spent checking the footie. Can't believe my little underachieving AFCB team are 1 win away from the Prem. Utter madness.
Good stuff Dean, Iron and Bus - Good to get some training in the nice weather before it all goes tits up.
Dean - kicking off tomorrow with a 1500 instead of a 5k I think at Bedford, probably be a howling gale as per usual. I'll lay down a marker for you - can imagine it will take you long . Just hoping that as I have now done 6 track sessions (as compared to none all of last season!) my first will be ok-ish.
Seen PP's 3 hour pacer stuff. Rather him than me! Hope the rain doesn't drag him down on Sunday
Dachs - keep at it kid, you'll be fine - great advice from Dean too regarding these sessions.
Scott - running non scoring for Bedford at SAL on saturday. Was going to do the 5000m but after all these 400 reps it's probably better to go for a 1500 instead. Hopefully I can kick off with sub 4.15 - after starting with 4.25 last year!
Dean - don't taunt the old boy now. you know what these marathon runners are like Actually I had put PP on ignore somehow - definitely didn't mean to LOL
SG- There is a one line track there (on the grass behind the old Vauxhall sports club - now 'Venue 360') the summer, but as they have been on that grass for about 8 years now,he knows the distances like the back of his hand. Generally the grass is pretty short.
Come on Bus - spill the beans on the reps ...gentle 12 today commuter stylee!
