Bright and sunny and very mild. Today is a rest day.
Last night's club session was a bit of a mismatch. We ran on a flat road 5 x 4 lampposts increasing pace between lampposts and recovering back on the pavement. The total distances were only 320 ft so it was decided that we would do another set of 5 x 4. I probably wouldn't have done the session if I had known how short the sprints were, but I pushed hard and hopefully haven't done any damage before Sunday.
It's dark and gloomy at the moment, but hoping that it brightens up later.
WtnMel, thanks for the birthday wishes. The only advantage running wise in getting older, is that the WAVA's can improve if the general level doesn't dip too much. Sundays race will be my first as a 71 year old, but the WAVA won't be great as it is a hilly race. Did I mention that it was hilly? Hope you enjoy the family get together on Sunday. Is this an annual event?
We have a speed session at club this evening on a level stretch of road. It is a new session, so don't know much about it.
Bright and sunny and much warmer. Today is a rest day, so will probably start writing Christmas Cards.
Conditions were good for last nights Kenyan Hills session. We did 5 sets of 5 lampposts with 1.5 minute walk recoveries between sets. Each set was 0.5 mile. The threat of the bumps soon vanished when they realised how many they would have to give
Thanks Red, I had a lovely evening last night celebrating my Birthday a day early. The food and service were excellent and we enjoyed ourselves.The dining room was nicely decorated, without being ott. There was no loud music in the background, which was good.
It's been very foggy in the NF. I could hardly see across the road this morning. Its cleared up now, but hope it doesn't return later, as we have Club tonight. It's Kenyan Hills. Some of our club members are doing the December streak which entails running at least 3 miles every day. That's not for me though, as I value my rest days.
