MG - Can't say it really helped the confidence but looking at it I seem to have had a slightly better month that I realised. Was thinking yesterday I'd had a poor month, but I've ran my 4th highest monthly total and I've got a 18, 19 and 20 miler in. I still feel like I'm running through treacle but I guess I need to accept that this is where I'm at the now. I'll be aiming ~3:43 at Loch Ness then hopefully building through the winter to take another chunk of that in Barcelona.
I'd be happy to even take 10 seconds off my half PB next week, which given that I thought I'd be able to take about 7 minutes off it in March is slightly annoying. Still, it'll be good to actually get a couple of proper races in next month
NP - Another good parkrun, even with all the stops!
OH - Well done on the race
Jason - Well done on the parkrun, sounds like a tough long run today
Fiona - Nice LSR
MG - That's also a good long run
NN - Hope you enjoyed the rest day!
Michael - Nice easy 7 miles
Tek - Good club running
6.1 with 22:40 parkrun and 0.5 mile swim yesterday. parkrun seemed too hard for how fast I was running. Willing to put that down to tiredness, as I was struggling to keep my eyes open watching the Man United game at lunch time. Although that might be down to how mince Man U are...
Long run in a bit once my breakfast has settled, potentially my last actual long run as I have a half next weekend.
NP - Good swim and run today. Sounds like a good race for your club last night too
Stewart - Nice running last night
Tek - Well done on another good MLR
Michael - Good cycling.
OH - I'm with you. I wish facebook had an option to filter out all posts containing the word ice and/or bucket. That was a good long run you got done earlier in the week!
Fiona/MG - I think seeing you guys mention weight sorta made me realise my problem. I think some of the speed I've lost must be due to putting on weight, as I hadn't realised I'm nearly 80kg again. Woops!
Once again, no long run done on Monday. This is starting to get ridiculous now. Need to get 20 in on Sunday or there's no point in bothering with Loch Ness, and I'll just look towards Barcelona.
10 steady done Tuesday, 6 easy last night and 7.6 w/10x400m @ ~6:00 tonight is my week so far.
