Saturday was weird Mr V, I ran with SM, setting off just after 8am and jogged 2m to warm up and it was grey and overcast and we were sweating buckets, it was horrid, I was thinking about just running steady at this point. We made a start and not long into the tempo the heavens opened up and rained for most of the 10 miles, which was a relief. Glad I stuck it out in the end, it was below McMP, but on a rolling course with some off-road, I’ll take that as a good training effort. 7:20s is a decent clip for a long run, you are throwing up some good training numbers at the moment.
Lots of good mileage Dr Dan, you should be building a pretty decent aerobic engine with the run/bike combo.
Don’t mind a gamble but find horse racing incredibly boring.
It’s quiet on here, anyone got any racing to tell us about?
Like DT, I ran 7 miles yesterday, feeling pretty tired in general. Plan is to see this week out best I can, but we go on holiday on Friday for 9 days, so training will continue but will be much lower volume compared to normal.
I’ll not be seeing you at Vale of York or Carnegie as we are away for two weeks in September so will miss them both. Shame as I fancied both. So what’s the plan with Nottingham? Taking a leaf out of prf’s book?
4 slow xc miles at lunch seemed to help shake my legs out. Planning a long run/tempo combo tomorrow morning.
