SM, a good 9 miler last night followed up with a tough interval session a cracking pace, the legs will come back sooner rather than later and you'll be flying, that example week would probably break me right now!
Yellow, looks like a busy summer of racing and those targets are achievable, good luck
I'll certainly be keeping a close watch on how I feel and how I am reacting to the training, as you say it is easy to start over reaching which can lead into over training
Ollie, lol, very true, but it is always shorts weather but I will wear sleeves when the temps drop, well done with the uneventful 3 miles
Cal, a good interval session, keep doing the work and those paces will improve
Dr Dan, good to hear you got the swim done, I bet you feel better for it , thanks for sharing your thoughts it is appreciated
Tek, some great training and doing a MP run on tired legs will no doubt be a real confidence booster, Thanks again I do appreciate your input, it seems like a sensible route to take
NP, a good swim today I hope the snow stopped so you could get out on the trails.
I never thought about bringing the volume down to get more quality in, food for thought
OH, a good run with JS, nice to have decent conditions for a change
Intervals tonight with the Tri club, first session back and boy was it tough, not quite half mile reps 8 of them, on the rep when going into a stiff breeze and up hill I felt like I had no power and it was a struggle lifting the legs, fine on the down though . A non running day tomorrow so I'll do some strength and conditioning work along with the body balance class.
thanks again for your opinions I do value all of them. Given I have 3 10ks lined up 2 in May and one in July and a 10 miler in June I think I'll build up focusing more on intervals and tempos, it will give me an opportunity to build up the volume slowly along with those quality sessions.
