Rob - where did you have your tests done? Katie Brough recently went to Loughborough to have lactate tests done thinking it would come up saying the mara is her best distance but it was the 5K to her disappointment! I use a HM when I'm getting back to fitness if I've been resting or ill. I run from 140 to 155 which is around 7:20 pace when fit.
It's good to see your super confident and hopefully Trafford will bare the fruits of 5 months consistent work. Seeing all those Cheshire vests on FB today had really spurred me on, the senior men's team is less than spectacular at the moment. My days are numbered with our super star kids turning 18/20 now though.
Dean, Matt, I'll see you at Christleton! Will enter in a week or so when I get paid. I swear that course is like Narnia - all down hill!
I was away with my class in for 3 days and ended up with food poisoning yesterday, again, my arse emptied it's self rigorously and I puked up all night. Feelin' alright now but off to bed now as there are pots to be won on Sunday!
4 x 1 mile tonight. Week before a race so recovery was 2:30. Session was nearly called off as I had blinding cramp in my stomach on the warm up and throughout the day the whole world and his mates have fallen out my arse! Ploughed on though...
Reps: 5:39, 5:39, 5:42, 5:39. Pace felt good, had the odd feeling that I was going to poo myself on the odd rep but I survived with clean pants. Win/win. Just easy running till 10K MT on Sunday.
That's a nasty looking mega bus session coming up!
Back to the 3K eh SG? Or more a summer blasting 5Ks you think? I'm gonna be doing 3000 but more as a speed session rather than a time trail. Gonna have another stab as the mile this year! Jesus, that was hard work 74s laps...
Nice report there. relief beating Sammir, if he did go with the front lot then he's a daft lad. Seems to have the ability just absolutely no common sense.
Like Phil said, you can't keep hitting PBs you need to keep posting consistently decent times on your CV. It takes time for the PB to be the standard rather than that monumental effort where everything clicked. Only now 14 months after my 10K PB am I truly thinking that I can smash it. Took a lot of track sessions to get that pace hard wired.
But fair play, with the wind. My life it's a shocker and race spoiler. A 77min HM in the wind I 'd give my left bollock for. I ran 15 miles LSR and the last 3 home in the wind nearly broke me - lay on the couch all day recovering, so God knows how you lot felt.
Deano/Matt, no Trafford for me fellas, it's pot hunting all the way! I'm well up for it, ran the course again today. It's for the best as I'm on a residential with my class this week so sleep will be minimal! No ideal PB hunting prep!
