Yup good luck - sure it will be ok - good session too there, low 1.50's for 600's os decent!
Scott - yep a bit more mileage to the mix and you'll be really cooking
Like PMJ was going out at lunchtime, but bit tired and work a bit mental. Parkrun tomorrow at our Leighton Buzzard one in Rushmere, my bro is visiting as it's my kid's 6th b'day tomorrow. I think he'll like the off road element as compared to flat Poole every Saturday morning..then onto Bupa 10k Monday..hopefully the weather holds!
Padams - sounds like the same night we did last year - sounds like a plan, no doubt the day before the Stevo road relays again. Tom said he was looking at 8.40's would have thought he'd be below that!
Bainspj - Well I looked on PO10 in the V40 10,000 rankings and there are 6 of us filling the top spaces for the year who did the race on saturday. Kojo K did 30.xx and PP's mate Chris did just a bit slower. I'm the slowest of the bunch!
Ha ha yes the grass reps can vary a little bit, but the course has been the same for the last 6 years, so it should be about right. But sometimes you just have a feeling one of the corners might be a bit short.
Reg - Agree about the balance, I think i'll so more swimming in the winter when I get in my 50's etc. Good for suppleness and bloody hard. Plus warmer and safer than biking!!
Decent 5k PMJ - Love those evening summer 5k's - cheap entry and a decent social - perfect. Sounds like a good series.
Training on the grass at Luton last night - 8 x 1k, bit breezy. 3.11 for the first then averaged about 3.06 with the last two 3.04 and 2.58. Surprised myself, although we do the same course for these distances, might have been a teeny bit short I think. Anyway hopefully not..and good prep for the BUPA 10K on Monday.
Just discovered my time from Saturday was 9:12.8 rather than my estimate of 9:15. Pleased with that as a solo run with a bit of wind and a bit left in the tank! Might try to get down to a Watford Open evening for a PB attempt at some point - probably need a bit more speedwork first though.
Yep I need to work out which one to go to. Was discussing last years race with TC on Saturday. another race like that would be good.
