Nice casual ten miler, day after a 20, just the minute faster than my PB Matt . Perhaps I'm not drinking enough beer!
Yeah, I sometimes slip into running to the beat when listening to music, but that's not a bad thing - it can pick you up when you;re tired! I try to listen to music that is generally abut the right pace for the run, and will often listen to some really slow stuff to start. That said, I also listen to podcasts on long runs so gawd knows what that does to pace!
Drafting's is a perfectly fair tactic in my view though. It's just being smart - though not in the same way as Trump not paying taxes!
I wish I'd had some lankster to tuck in behind in that GSR SG! That was some wind along the front and the zig-zagging to try and find some shelter probably added as much time as the wind itself! Still, if I'd finished any quicker I would have missed the once in a life time of chundering in the background shot of Jo Pavey being interviewed live on TV . Still a PB too!
Tonight's run home tonight continued the sequence of perfectly acceptable paced XCs of late. All 8:20 ish compared to 9+. Nothing great, but considerably better than earlier this year. I suspect the run of low mileage weeks has been helpful. That bloody adductor thing is still complaining though!
They've got those Yurbud things I was talking about in Sports Direct High Wycombe for £9.99 Mr G... As I said before, mine have NEVER fallen out while running and even sound OK. They come in different sizes, so you may want to try them on sneakily before buying them though.
Double 6 commute for me today. Hope the fog stays away until after I'm home, as I hate using a head torch in the fog!
