Do it SG - probably an off-day anyway, but even under par, you'll do better than many of your team mates!
Back at work today after 2 and a half weeks - boo hoo! Grey drizzle suits my mood! Run in reflected the last couple of weeks efforts and my legs felt very heavy, with a bit of a twinge in the old adductor area I'll need to keep a watch on.
I'm not convinced about this stretching lark - legs were fine last two weeks having done not one bit, bit did a foam roll and stretch session last night and legs are tired!
Downward dog is good for calf muscles I find (my Mrs used to do yoga and showed me!). I can just about get my palms on the floor when standing straight legged, which is good for the hamstrings, but I do have the advantage of having stumpy little legs
As for the 10,000, I've never done any sort of track race, but now you mention it, 25 laps seems a lot! It's all ages though SG, not just vets...
Matt - that mileage is damn impressive, but not surprising looking at the mammoth sessions on Strava! My mileage for August is down a bit, but not surprisingly, given the trip to the Alps, the ascent is a fair bit - 202M and 32,000 ft. The downside of all that climbing is it's dragged the pace down to not much less than 10 min miling!
