I agree with Dan on gels and fuelling, hydration and correct fuelling should be done the days and week previously. I struggle with the concept of training to teach the body to burn fat and then filling it with sugary substances on race day. But then I'm a simple being and don't have the knowledge or interest in the science.
CW - that's a decent session considering the increase in miles.;
PP - that's a good session mate.
Good luck to the racers at Bath, kick it hard and all that.
17 miles yesterday with the last 5 being the Weston prom run, 5 miles up and down the seafront. took the win in an even paced comfortable 26.40, aerobically sound but legs grumbled a bit. Legs felt carp this morning for a 5 mile bimble. 6 later to bring up 110 over the last 7 days, which is a record.
Nice to see some familiar faces at Bramley, great controlled run by Dan for a rather impressive neg split and Al you nailed your MP "blocks". sounds like Jools, Ryan and Jock had good runs as well.
PP - sounds like a nice 15.
RS78 - Pubka esq PB.
Padams - Strong week, which HM are you doing?
Feck me Selbs that looks very painful.
KD - I love hill reps but never found a decent hill that's 1 mile long!!
I also ran Bramley, had a pleasing result, 1.53.16 for 4th place with an average heart rate 5bpm below marathon rate. Let a group go at 12 and probably should have gone with them but didn't want to burn too many matches and eased off a touch over the last 2 miles.
