Didn't do BAC session last night partly as cutback week and partly because it was first time in P and D where I could do some speedwork and first time I'd tried since injury; which showed in the random paces really. Session was 2mile warm up, 6x800m (2.36,2.35,2.24,2.35,2.36) off 200m 1k recovery then 5 mile MP (Average 5.51mm) and 2 mile cool down. HM in 1.22 and 13.2 mile total in 6.20 mm. Wicked pleased with all of it but I guess the random 800m in 2.24 shows what I should really be aiming for (ran past people I know making me speed up! ), fairly flat path around a cricket pitch so was nice. 5.50's felt comfortable all good at the moment
ON7 sounds like solid 16 banked in decent sub 3 pace
PP have to admit I'm not much of a cyclist but tempting given that pic; where in majorca is it...I'd be flying solo if I wanted to venture out on that
CW/bains heavy bumbag sounds hideous; never had a problem with a backpack as long as the straps will do up tight enough. Always do my long runs with at least 2-3kg backpack with phone/keys gels and water
TR sounds like rib ligament/muscle sprain bloody painful adn not much you can do don't want to be harbinger of doom but will probably take 6 weeks to settle. I did a rib on an assault course (stag do) last summer had to take 4 weeks completely off running
bains great km repeats; love those paces and good mix of training. glad the mojo is overflowing ps wife found my wedding ring at weekend...any luck with yours??
TR hope the surfing injury is all healed up now. sounds nasty. Must be a proud Dad with budding cricketers like that especially if in adult 2nd's or 1st XI. Really impressed with the family zero week. I have a holiday to Majorca 5 weeks out from Abingdon, all inclusive, been toying with what to do. Don't think I can handle a zero but think will make it a serious cutback week; there's a gym with one treadmill guess some early visits there so I can start drinking after breakfast!
further 6 yesterday and 9 miles early doors this morning. Legs already feeling much fresher so cutback week working its magic
rounded off the week with a planned 17 with 10 at MP. Didn't quite get to MP due to being at grandparents (wife working so needed someone to look after the kid while I ran), more wind and inclines than used to but the 10 averaged 6.06 mm slow w/u cool down but made a 1.22 HM and 17.1 at 6.32 mm. felt bit on the brink this week but cutback week coming up so hoping that bring me in the realms of safety again
