Great running SW3, and Marty74 (I ran the Heartbreaker Half which was a challenging workout, 3.26 was good timing to avoid the worst of the weather!). And good luck McHilly.
I was told that a good hill rep hill is 400m straight line distance with enough steepness that you can run it but with a hard effort. Seems to work for me!
Hoping the weather starts to become more springlike so I can get out on the Scottish hills for training. We have some great, hilly moorland routes with fine views, but they are prione to snow and brutal in a cold wind.
I was lucky in southern England today, we got the bad weather but it arrived after my half marathon. Course was very tough (hilly and off road) but I had a great run and grabbed the 'second fastest old chap' award. Now listening to Scotland's David vs Goliath effort against England in the cricket. I fear I will not be gloating tomorrow.
I finally manage to get my head around a long run on Sunday, first one since July, other than one marathon and one ultra. With the days getting longer the hills are beckoning however, so focused Comrades work will be starting soon.
Did manage a HM PB the other week, especially enjoyable as it was my first sub-80. Rather messed up the next week's training with sore legs (old age creeping up) so I'll be taking this week's Heartbreaker Half a bit easier. Wear that Comrades hat Marty74 and I'll give you a shout as you pound back and forth! I'll probably be the only runner (ever?) in Inverness Harriers gold with maroon diagonal in the New Forest.
