Nice threshold stuff CC82 and Rob. Rob, it's very impressive, but what's with all the threshold runs at the moment?
Mile reps was on the agenda last night, but I was shattered so I didn't bother. Managed a 10 this morning, stuck a couple of fast miles in there (5:15, 5:10), but didn't do any more as I've got a big session tomorrow I didn't want to wreck. Then did 5K in the afternoon with my 8-year old after school. He did really well considering he'd never run more than 2 before.
Good run Ric. I always wonder if there is such a thing as "easy XC" though - I find that even when I'm on a slow old warm up for an XC session, it's quite tough going on that kind of ground. Depends on the course I suppose.
Andrew - good to see you back running. No, I'm afraid that whilst the new car is a splendid red, it is most definitely not a sports car, rare or otherwise.
Well done Scott, great to see you back and posting a time. Hopefully you'll re-gather strength quickly and will be back to racing.
Mind-blowing tempos Dean and Rob. Dean, you always said you had a problem doing sub-6 tempo runs - looks like you've put that to bed! Rob, that's two huge tempos in a week. Preserve this good shape and take it to a race.
Iron Cat, who was the ginger fellow in the park then? I know one ginger chap who lurks around that park a lot, but he is a fox, and he comes around our way mainly to rip open binbags rather than watch his young ones race.
16m yesterday in 1:52 (slow start but averaged about 6:10 for the last 10K) brought up 83 for the week. A few more big mileage weeks should hopefully set me up for the rest of the year.
