Me- our annual works' 5k fun run this evening, with my little run group (very small this year- only five. But perfectly formed ). this year it was at the Olympic park. Very warm and a lovely venue and friendly race. The course measured short by my Garmin. Very short at just over 2.7 miles! I know it's just a fun run but that is really grating. So my *official* time was 22:52 but I know that my pace was waaaay off PB time. Still a fun evening and I was objectively 9th woman (no, there weren't just ten of us). Which is nice
Hi Andrea, I do about a mile at an easy pace to the hill and to warm up and down.But I don't tend to count the mileage on a hills session, just the reps , their speed and whether I've maintained consistent pace.
Swittle- good to @see@ you and it sounds like you might be coming through this tricky phase. Fingers crossed
Matt- a marathon to start your day!!? Very impressive
Me- it was still 35 degrees on our club run through the forest this evening which made for a very challenging 5 mile cross country run. Followed by our new regular runners' pilates class, which we did outside on the green by the clubhouse, as the sun set. Lush
thanks for the congrats Strangely. I have not been faster since doing VLM, quite the opposite. the 5K pB was really just a fluke I think. Exciting about your GFA!! I can only dream of that.. I have however got a sub 4 hr marathon like an itch in the back of my mind that needs to be scratched... grrrr.
Me- hills last night. A new one, double the length and elevation of the usual one and a fairly hardcore session in the heat. I managed 4 reps, which i was happy with, speed was much the same as I'd do for 8 reps of the lesser hill, so pleased with that. Am cycling most days ATM too. Not much, work and back is about a 5 mile round trip
