Not really the time I wanted today at Reading but in all honesty about the time I expected. I set off at sub 80 pace and paid the price for it later. At about mile 7 I could feel my legs start to get a little heavy and from then on my pace started to slow, I didn't seem to have the mental edge to push on today knowing that my ( unrealistic) target was fading fast.
The last 3 miles were a slog due to an ever increasing head wind.
Last year wearing a broken Garmin I pushed on from start to finish unsure of my time. I think there's a lesson to be learned.
Getting continually overtaken in the last few miles is never great but there you go. So scores on the doors 1.23.16.
Well done Joolska, great effort.
And well done to lit, we must have been running close for a fair bit.
At least I beat the great one over on team GB.
I'll have a proper read back later when I crack open a beer.
I've just run an easy 3 miles to keep the legs turning over, so that's 5 runs so far this week and with the HM tomorrow I will keep the 100% going for Jantastic.
We do live up to our name don't we.
Some great monthly mileage targets being achieved, just shows the time and effort required to reach your goals.
178 miles for me this month but since that has included 2.taper weeks means I'm not totally slacking.
Ant- I didn't have you down as a stickler for rules, I suppose a ten minute jog on the spot in a crowded pen is out of the question too. I'll just have to get my six runs in but if I fall short I may take Minni's advice and do a lap of honour, I will of course wait until the stadium is completely empty and everyone has gone home.
A nice easy 5 miles today with a few sets of strides to keep my legs turning over nice and quick.
I was thinking of doing a limited quality session tomorrow, maybe some 800s at HMP just to test out the speed. What do you all think, any point?
