Good bit of XC action there from Pete and AG, good stuff chaps. Dachs - sounded awful, but we've all been there. I personally tend to try and fine another race straight away.
Not done much recently, few strides Thursday, Swansea for footie and muchos beer Saturday, cracking long run to MK on Sunday about 14/15 miles (cold, no wind, carbo loaded from the day before!)
Luton last night, 6 x 1200 on the grass. Can't remember the sequence exactly, but they started at about 3.51 and ended up with 3.45 for the last one. Felt pretty good and ready for Wolverton 5 on Saturday. Shame Gordon Lee has entered. He's a very fast old man!!
That's the way it works though Bus! Ric - Yes I know who you mean..Metros guy. the best bit about the lakes 10k is the free bottle of sparkling wine that my dad's mate does out of the van. Decent stuff too..
Just a heads up that Sweatshop have 20% extra off everything including sale stuff, just picked up my new pair of Glide boost for £48 including P&P.
In case anyone after some new stuff. Right, better get to bed, up at 5am!
I'm still in the dark ages in this respect. Just got the old Casio - and if I want to do a steady 5, i'll run for 35 mins, knowing the route will be virtually spot on 5 miles. My training is always distance based rather than time.
Trained solo this week, partly due to weather/travel issues. 10 Primrose Hill reps Tuesday lunchtime - very steep and jelly leggish! Then 20 x 30-33 secs reps along the canal yesterday with 30 secs recovery. Felt very sprightly doing the faster reps so was pleased with that.
Entered a few races yesterday..
Wolverton 5 (MK) next Saturday, Poole AC Round the Lakes 10k Boxing day and the Stamford Valentines day 30k (my mate from uni runs for Stamford). And then the Cardiff half in March already entered. Then I'm thinking the Highgate 10,000m after that and into the shorter stuff again.
Long day tomorrow, off to Swansea - Bmth, so much drinking and hopefully no running
