Has anybody ever lost all their data off their garmin? Just happened to me tonight an I've lost everything.
Decided to give the tempo run a whirl on the track. Two young brothers joined me for the session. Both are sub 17 5k lads, one is 14 and the other is 17 I think. The older one has ran for England on the fells and i think the youngest has won his national age category championships for the last 4 years on the fells.
After 6 or so laps I started worrying about my calf, not sure if it was a mental thing but carried on instead. Bit of a nasty head wind on the back straight and they both ended up just dropping out for the odd lap so they prob covered 4 of the miles with me. Longest I've ran on the track in one hit and its certainly a mental battle. Breathing etc felt good and I made sure I ran 20 laps and then another 50m. 27.02 so really pleased with that.
An easy paced double for me yesterday. My calf felt a little tight at work yesterday and seems like it's back to square one this morning. Pissing me off as it's alternating between left calf and my right knee. One flares up, the other eases. Really want to have a bash at the 5 mile tempo tonight too. I think my calf is linked to having some tightness under my left heel. Tendon? Rolled a small spiked ball under it this morning and is one of them dull pains that I quite like, a bit like picking a scab,
Well done on the PB Nikki. Must've been really pleasing after thinking that your running days could well have been over.
That does sound a bit hectic Phil. What's it like when you have raced in America? Much the same at the smaller events?
Ric, what were the next tests you were due?
Still a bit of an ache around my knee, taking my chances at the minute like Ric as I've still been managing the sessions and the miles. Rest day on Friday or 6 miles easy so I think I'll be having a day off. 12 x 1 min hill reps tonight sandwiched in a 10 miler, a 5 mile tempo on Thursday then 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 off half recoveries on grass at the weekend. Hit 70 miles last week and shouldn't be far off again this week.
