AM - sorry not read here for a week. Glad you got down to the club and don't worry about being confused. I didn't know what I was doing either and stopped at one point as I couldn't remember if the B group were continuing to the motorway bridge!
As you get more familiar with faces you will know where you should be within the groups on tempo runs.
I've been going down there off and on since 2008 and I still don't know where I am running half the time .
The tempo sessions are a bit hit and miss tbh. I've always thought that about them. There really ought to be group leaders who you run with and who lead the session.. calling out when the tempo begins and ends etc.
Tonight will be a bit more structured as it's efforts on Turn Moss fields. So we all jog out there and then the session is a bit like a track session so we all go off in the respective groups.
DOMS came back with a vengeance after a tough Calderdale Way relay recce on Saturday. Ran it with a couple of guys from the first team who will be challenging for the gold medal. So understandably I got dropped on the climbs. 10 miles in total including a rapid ran back to the car at the end. I don't imagine I will run the race much faster than I ran the recce.
Like others I have been doing some introspective thinking post-marathon. I have identified key areas for me to work on. Strength and weight. I don't have a bad diet but it could be better. Also, I barely stretch or do anything to improve leg strength. Hoping a couple of body-weight sessions at home will help.
CRAB - Congrats on AFCB getting all-but promoted - hope you don't lose 19 nil at the weekend . Now we just need TR's mob to sort themselves out and the South-coast will be well represented in the Prem.
