Tmoth - always nice when the mojo returns, hopefully Lev is headed in the same direction.
Club run last night, baulked when they said we were doing 6x5 minutes with 1 minute recovery! The idea was to treat it as a tempo run rather a full on interval effort, so kept it to HM pace or a bit quicker. Turned into a good session not sure that you wouldn't get more benefit from just doing a consistent tempo though
Jools - maybe just me but the first thing I was struck by in your photo was the lovely balloons! I'm with Padams on this though, stopping the watch after the line usually results in the pleasant 'surprise' of the chip time being a couple of seconds quicker than the watch
Stet - I always find the speedy sessions are both quicker & easier with the club. Just having a couple of others around seems to make that the case
Lev - As has already been said there is nothing wrong with a little bit of down time, you have been going great guns lately & that fitness won't have gone anywhere
RS - hope the calf is nothing serious
CW - likewise I hope the hammy twinge is just that. I will also be at the Great Eastern this year.
10k for me this morning, I think the worst of the rain had blown over although it was still plenty damp enough, the wind however ruined times early on with K's 2-5 all being 15-20 seconds down on the average min/mile pace. Got myself in a group with 2 clubmates of Padams & Olympian Claire Hallisey who I think would be a clubmate of Jools?
Anyway they dragged me round for a while before 2 of them got away around 8k & I pipped the remaining Padams clubmate at the finish. Time of 36.06 which is 8 seconds faster than last year in much more testing conditions, so a good mornings work.
