Well done on the 10ks Andrew and DT (imagine what you could do with a taper DT!) and on toughing out the Tri and ending up feeling good Iower!
Nothing to report here. A week's snowboarding over Easter followed by relative visiting meant running and diet went a little awry! Back on track with both now though, with 4x1mile (800m recovery) this morning averaging pretty much spot on my target pace.
Agree with VDOT. If you want to give up sugar, give up foods containing sugar. Don't substitute it. Too much fructose has been linked to fatty liver disease in American teens, previously only seen in alcoholics.
You go away for a few days and everyone's I'll or injured. Take it east everyone until you're recovered.
Little Miss CB did her last South Manchester junior parkrun this morning before Northwich juniors starts next week. I got 9 easy miles in the sunshine this afternoon. Easy pace is back to what it was before Trafford.
Well done Dan, a good sign of where you are at the moment and more to come soon.
Nicely run MYOX, and to keep up the pacing with no pacing device is impressive.
Thanks Alehouse, the second one is already on the calendar (along with Mid-Cheshire 5k, Round the Runway, both Dunham Masseys and Hollins Green). I'm on DofE for the first and after that we're into summer holidays so can't plan for anything.
Little Miss CB came last at junior parkrun, predictably. She runs all the way, but is quite happy to trot round chatting away to anyone that'll listen. One week she'll get her head down and show what she can do!
6 stiff miles on Monday, last gym session before membership runs out yesterday and 7 easy this morning. I toyed with a tempo run this morning but my legs are still pretty mashed from Sunday.
