Christ Dean that's a right haul. Not bought Nike for years though. Good reps btw.
Nice road running Dachs - good DIY too. I'm not a proper bloke in that respect, pretty usless around the house.
Disagree SG - Football fan, but prefer Saturday racing too, LSR the day after. I just hope there aren't too many clashes with matches I want to go to. Sunday races have become more popular in the last 20 years I think.
Gels? I had three cola Squeezy gels in Berlin. Having nearly as much Caffeine as a can of Red Bull in each..they got me round. Just held them in my hand - all three in my left - couldn't do two in the left and one in the right . The first one went everywhere.
Fecking cold last night at Luton. 8 x 1k , so the 600 around the pitches and 400 up and down the slope of doom. Ended up with 3.20 for the first one, 5 at around 3.17, the last two at 3.16 and 3.12. Happy with that seeing as the ground is getting heavy - and 150m of slope in each rep. Hitting a bit harder this week - as it's the 'xc free' weekend. Full commuting miles with a Regents Pk session tomorrow lunchtime hopefully.
Matt - That's my lovely German rye bread I eat now from Waitrose - finally after dropping Porridge years ago - and then dairy before races, this has finally sorted me out. its Gluten free so breaks a bit - but double toasted with butter it's lovely. Especially with bacon. Wheat free (or certainly less white flour) is the way to go for me. Experiment though.
