SG - yeah, i did a 38:18 on a pan flat route last year (couldn't make that race this year) and this year's 10k's have been MT around a park 37:52 ( mostly grass that needed a good cut ) and the one above. In my defence, i also had some stomach problems in the latest one so couldn't push myself too hard and coasted the final k.
I still can't see where Tommy says anything about a broken collarbone but nevertheless it's crap news ....
EDIT - sorry Bob, missed your post. All is now clear re Tommy
I'm confused, who's got a fractured collarbone ? Tommy ?
Apologies but i can't read back so well done to anyone who has been breaking pb's, i'm sure muddy must have had at least one in the last month
The briefest of read backs tells me that DT seems to be going well which is good to hear after he was seemingly getting a bit fed up with it all. And Lit has moved on from SG after a couple of very successful years. Obviously SG knows his onions and did a great job for Lit but i guess it's good to change things around and i hope you're enjoying the new training.
I've had a very busy few weeks before a couple of weeks internet-free holiday in Dorset. During that time i've been a bit CNBA and have dropped mileage quite a bit, although i've kept my long runs going. I don't feel particularly fit at the moment and am probably back to a million stones again so have abandoned any thoughts of doing my local HM in 10 days and will try to build to a 10 miler on 4th Oct ( a club champs race ) and then again for a local 10 miler in December as my normal benchmark for VMLM.
Oh, i did set a new 10k pb at the end of July. This was a memorial race for my cousin's son ( in support of the charity she runs in his name ) so it would have been nice to win it but not to be and i was 2nd to my team mate ( i'm up about 3-1 on recent head to heads ) It was quite a tough course with some very steep ups and downs but i was hoping to be a bit quicker this summer and it hasn't happened. I'm hoping that with some consistent training/threshold work over the next few months i may be able to cash in on the marathon trainingand see that coming through.
