Well done on the parkruns fellas. Bus, I don't think she'd have minded if you let out a big wretch as you closed in on her.
Prob wise skipping your Parkrun Andrew. Good luck at the XC.
Nice session too Dean.
Still hit and miss with my foot, some days it has felt 95% fine and ran with no problems, others its constantly there. Decided to dig my spikes out and go for a run on the mud in the wind and rain. I was hoping the soft boggy playing fields would help and they did. Couldn't feel it. A mile warm up and down then I decided to just run to feel, keeping a honest effort and without looking at my watch and averaged a shade over 6min mile pace for 6 miles.
Just been to watch the podium 5k. First 4 were sub 15! I've not seen the results but I think the lad what won in 14.5x was a lad I beat by 10 seconds or so in August at Capenhurst 5k. If it was him he also ran 31.3x at Leeds. I'm not jealous one bit, honest. Both of them big PBs too. Might be mistaken identity though.
Haha, I'd think I could go well at the cider mile. Not sure I'd get close to 60 seconds for a flat out 400 though. I get the feeling that I'd end up running tempo pace for the last 100m and with my lungs going up in a ball of flames.
Nice reps Andrew and a cracking Tempo Dachs. Is it a Half that's first up in the new year?
After declaring I was having a much needed rest on Sunday, I did a spinning class at 6am monday morning. Couldn't feel the foot injury all day so tried a slow run Monday and thought I'd turned a corner. Tried another run on Tues and it reverted to type - run on my heel for a couple of miles until it settles and then away I go.
Felt ok Wed so I went for a piss about chasing strava segments with a bastard of a hill about 1.5 miles long and ended up with 9 miles averaging 6.20 pace. Threw in another progression run on the treadmill yesterday ave sub 6 min for 6.4 mile. Wasn't pretty after Wednesdays hard run.
Great fun being 'injured' with no plans. just piss about until i break down completely or it gets better. hoping to try a XC session tomorrow.
