Still bloody good going Rob. Wish I'd have got a heart rate monitor with my garmin but I was too tight to buy one. Keep meaning to get one but never got round to it. More out of curiosity than anything else.
Great session too Dachs. Near as dammit that Cardiff will be a big PB. I'd be wrapping myself in cotton wool til race day.
Max, I had 3/4 goes at the 3x2 mile session last year before I had a big PB at Leeds. It was on a treadmill though and looking back it was what I eventually averaged for the race. There was no gradual progression up to it, I just had a bash at it after being injured and repeated it for 3/4 weeks if I remember right to try and get some endurance in my legs. Came up trumps for me.
Yeah, the idea of the 5 miler is that I can hopefully go for my goal
Pace on that and see what happens. It's flat and I think my PB at 5 mile is pretty soft so hopefully kill two birds with one stone.
Once I tried to drop the fell relay in favour of a 10k the week after I was constantly being pestered. Should have stood firm really but hey ho. In all honesty I didn't think I'd be able to manage the session last night so pleasantly surprised.
Cheers guys. Bit of a shame I've no proper races lined up as I feel in good shape. Road relays this weekend will be off the back of 2 sessions this week, then I've a fell relay on the 5th October and then a 5 miler on the 19th October. Then it'll be Leeds Abbeydash all being well.
I got asked to list the races that I fancied doing so we could filter some out. It turned out I'd picked 1 a week! Ha. Bit gutted to do the fell relay in all honesty as I've tried to give backword but I'm stuck with it. Would've liked to do a 10k around that time.
