Happy healing thoughts to all those with dodgy knees, hearts or whatever.
I'm a sleep monster. I can't wait for everyone to go back to school so the normal routine is back in order with everyone in bed earlier. I'm feeling pretty wiped out after 3 early training sessions and the usual M4 slog.
Nice PB Dachs, even if you weren't paying attention.
With the dip in temperature I did a 5x5min @10k with 5min easy RI session on Tuesday morning around Bracknell. Glad to say that each rep was below 10km pace and worked out at ~1200m for each rep and each rep was slightly faster than its predecessor. Pretty happy with that. Yesterday's recovery run in the Usk hills was a little leggy and I can feel the LH achilles pulling a bit again. Need to go and get the calves beaten soon.
Another cracking run Dean. Well done. SG - promising news and fingers crossed for the full results chap.
Unlike SG finding things on a run, I left everything out there on Saturday's club relay tri. For a team that entered for fun we managed 48th out of 162 teams. More surprisingly for someone who doesn't swim anymore my swim time was comparable to the others though it took me about 20 minutes to recover. Bike leg was fast and had nothing left for the run.
Short recovery run yesterday and today is DOMS central.
Excellent race Dachs, a 5k in spikes.... my calfs are aching at the thought! Showed some grit to stay with it later on and get a very sharp time. Congrats. I was once told that you can tell if you have the right pace in a track race if you feel like you want to quit at 2/3rds to the end. Sounds like you did.
I don't know about the calves, but after an XC season in spikes it was the balls of my feet that were really hurting.
Dean - I've heard similar about a 5k. If you want to throw up by mile 2 it's paced correctly.
In terms of Taggart vs Sugarbabes wasn't it Morse that then famously became Lewis? In terms of bands that kept the same name but had a complete line-up change we cannot miss out Atomic Kitten.
A nice easy 60misn low HR along the Taff yesterday, barely scraping 9km. Calves are still sore from the progression run which was the first speed session since before the hols. TTing tonight then the British Triathlon club relay champs at the weekend. I am in a 'fun' team
Garmin has gone a bit weird - it's telling me I did 35 activities at 9.34 last night!
Oh that old chestnut! Caused by Garmin's lack of understanding of time zones. I always delete the history before going somewhere abroad otherwise that happens.
Working near Cardiff this week so a nice 70mins progression run along the Taff in the cool morning sun. Last km was NAD race pace too, nice to see it is there, albeit well hidden most of the time. Just shy of 8 miles inc WU and CD.
