Trafford is in march and Salford is usually Good Friday which are both Manchester. Trafford is one loop on country roads and Salford is two laps round a housing estate/industrial estate. I actually prefer Salford.
That's a great tempo Dachs. Solo and on a track is a double dose of mental toughness. Are you doing Leeds? Ill be happy if I can dip my toe in the sub 33 bracket again if I'm honest. Will no doubt set off at PB pace though!
Good to hear you're back running SC although a shame about the home nations.
I suppose that's why you get results Dean, because you listen to your body. Any races lined up or just XC? Telford 10k?
Nice session Pete. I've not done k reps on a track in probably over 2 years. :-/ good luck to you and AG for the 10k.
I might well have a glut of races coming up, either XC or 10ks. I may end up missing the Liverpool XC which is usually the European XC selection race as it falls on the same weekend as a 10k I've got my eye on. Its also a league race of ours in the mid lancs. loved it last year going up against the fast lads. Them boys were sub 5 min miling in mud, haha.
Might have a local one at the end of Oct, im doing Leeds Abbeydash on the 6th, Cheshire on the 12th then 2 weeks til Wesham10k. Will probably do Ribble valley 10k which is the day after Boxing Day.
My 'steady' meant more effort than easy, especially after a few beers last night!
It all depends whereabouts I'm working. I didn't mind Cambridge earlier this year as its a nice place, it was feb-June so getting into the lighter months, I could cycle to and from the job and we 'only' worked 7-6pm.
It's when it's winter, they put us in digs that are miles away from the job, their vans have trackers on so the 7-7 soon becomes 6.40 -7.20. That's grim at best. If they play them tricks though ill not be doing it long. On the other hand I'm tempted to take it on the chin until Xmas and as I fancy a go at the London marathon ill get myself on the usual 8 hour days next year.
I can't imagine doing a marathon campaign whilst working away.
Solid long runs there fellas. Bus, what do you think brings the adductor troubles on? Racing, hills, sitting at work etc?
Managed to get a decent long run in myself. 14.5 miles on the canal towpath but got absolutely soaked. Left it a bit late to get out as I had a christening to go to so pretty steady at 6.25 pace.
Off to Wolverhampton tomorrow for potentially 4 months work. Back to the 7-7 shifts and sleeping in a travelodge (if we're lucky) haha. New running routes to find I suppose.
