Quick post the now as I'm away to the gym, and might be busy until Monday (going camping/hillwalking near Aviemore, although will hopefully get a chance to read back tonight) but best of luck for Sunday to Ollie and Dr Dan Hope I've not missed anyone else racing, good luck if you are!
Ollie - You certainly will have 2:50 in you. Even if not this time, it won't be far off in the future!
Stewart - Well done on the run last night, enjoy the football tonight
Tek - Hope you get back into it soon
I ended up doing 5 miles or so in total Thursday night. To, and from club session. Made a bit of an mess of the session at the start, and ended up with quite a few folk dropping out without doing the full session. Which was surprising as it wasn't the most ridiculous session (7x half miles, off ~90s) I could have set. Maybe folk were saving themselves for XC tomorrow...
Physio this morning. He seems to think it looks like the achilles is coming along, but did say it's a slow process. Got told just to run on alternate days, which is a bit annoying but I'll drop back to that but said that if it is pain free I can extend the length of those runs a bit.
Cal - Most of my general running is done at or around my PB marathon pace (8:10 I think?). One of these days I'll run a reasonable time. You'll smash your PB to bits in the spring. Good luck for Sunday
Gaz - I definitely think you've 3:15 in you! A good run today, even if the MP section was a touch hard!
Fiona - Yeah, I guessed you'd be aiming for 7:26s. Maybe 13 @ 7:08s will make that feel easy, or something Good training double today
Dr Dan - That's a good 13 miles too
NP - Good to hear from you again, and sounds like you've got a good plan in place for London
Ollie - Sounds like you've been getting ideas from some of Cals runs Good 8 miles
Stewart - Good to hear you've managed to get back out, hopefully this is the start of the big return!
Another 6 tonight, not as good as the last few. Woke up in the middle of the afternoon (well, it could have been anytime between 9 and 4 I suppose..) with a worrying feeling in my ankle, but was fine when I got out of bed. Running was mostly ok ,but did get a bit niggly a few times.
I had planned 2 short runs tomorrow (1.5 miles each way to training, as I'm taking the session again) but probably won't now. Back to the physio on Friday so it'll be interesting to see what he says.
