Fergster, extra sleep would be nice, but it's school holidays, so I have to run before my wife leaves for work at 8. So up at 5:20 this morning.
To get enough sleep I should go to bed around 9, but I'm not going to bed that early, as I'd hardly ever see my wife!
15mi ML today. Out at MP+15%, back at MP+10%. My legs are shot to bits!
I feel that the plan hasn't given me any recovery after racing on Saturday, with 18 Sunday, 10 Monday, 12 Tuesday and 15 today. That's probably the intention, but I could do with a rest!
Very tired going into it, 12mi w/ 6x1000m broke me today.
Target 5:32 pace off 70% recoveries of 2'24":
5:33 5:33 5:35 5:46 5:54 5:52
I gave each rep everything, but just couldn't make the pace today. I was expecting it to be a big ask, so I'm not overly concerned.
I'll now focus on trying to get some energy back for 20 w/ 14 MP on Sunday!
After yesterday's 10mi time trial, today's 18mi LR was very hard. My legs are battered.
Dreading 12 w/ 6x1000 on Tuesday!
A bridge too far this year Westy.
