TT - Good that the bug has gone and hope the swelling goes down soon.
Piscator - Were you wearing a HRM and was there any change during the quicker cadence/pace miles?
Did 6x800 on Thurs evening on the track. Was looking for 2:35's and ended up with 2:36,36,36,37,37,39. A little bit off but I had to run in lane 2 (lane 1 coned off) and it was a bit windy so was happy enough apart from the last one - thought I was flying the last 400 but evidently not! Very easy six yesterday and a day off today before 4 x 2m threshold on the treadmill tomorrow.
CW - Interesting stuff about cadence. I was in no state to keep going. I definitely overcooked it with HR above what I expect it to be at MP. For whatever reason, I didn't feel good on the day and should not have attempted it really. 20 miles at greater than marathon effort was foolish but hopefully I've recover ok and get back on track.
Very gentle 8 this morning with no major complaints from the legs and similar planned for tomorrow.
