In reply Scott, I always planned to do as many XC races as possible this year. Problem is that my wife works 4 to 5 weekend night shifts a month which means I'm on daddy duty all day whilst she sleeps. And yep you've guessed it, they've coincided with every single XC race.
She has booked the weekend of the Nationals off though. However I was reminded once I'd entered the Nationals that it was because it's our daughter's first birthday. Doh. #shitdad
id forgot you could look up runners and predicted times. looks like I'm down for 1:15. I'm guessing this was from last year. I'd be happy to be in the 1:16 - 1:17 mixer.
SG - 5.45 is threshold for me. i'm not sure i could hold that pace for a HM at the moment. I guess we'll see at Woky! today was a double day with easy 4 this morning and this afternoons session was 3x 15 mins (90), covering just over 2.5 miles per rep with easy running warm up and cool down making it 16 for the day
Great report Ric. certainly deserves it's description of epic! What's next for you? Tough Mudder? Mighty Deerstalker? One of the Brutal races?
Nice threshold run CC. Great consistency. Did you use your headtorch? Prob best to keep quiet if so
Hopefully thats the last of your lurgy then SG. Good to see you back training. Good use of the word rampaging to replace monstering too
Lit - will you be gracing the Champs start with your company again this year?
Bus - love a run when it clicks and everything just flows. Yesterday i went for an easy 45 mins and not only was the pace a significant step up of late, but all at a significantly lower average HR. It's amazing how you can just turn a fitness corner if you don't chase it.
Dean - fair play on the treadmill reps. I just can't seem to get along with treadmills at all unless for easy stuff. Great pace
PMJ - apparently CC wears a headtorch and just points it in front of him. He said you could give him a blow next time you see him.
I am the only one that has some horrendous visons of Simon looking all 'panty'. Christ.
Great stuff Dachs. Is the target to PB at Woky?
Good to see you back Scotch and great attitude - patience now will pay in the summer
Andrew - same applies as with Scott really. Cross training is dull as dish water but better than nought
I did a similar session to Dachs today if a little less volume at threshold. 8 miles @ 5.45 pace and just over 16 for the day.
