Dachs - that's some speedy miles just thrown in there!
Rob - you are going to need a week off after all that threshold work!
Iron - I'd still rather be in Lichtenstein than Aylesbury
Ric - remind m where the 1% comes from? I'd find it difficult to believe that, all other factors aside, simply by losing 3lbs before Wokingham I could run it over 1.5 mins faster than the weight I am now. By the same logic, if I lost 8 lbs, I'd be looking at a sub 1:15!
Ric - seems like only last year you were advocating a tuna bagel before, during and after every run
Most of my morning runs are done before breakfast (more out of necessity than anything else). I generally do my summer LSRs before breakfast too, but find that at this time of year I just can't get up so early on a Sunday!
My main problem is I just like food and drink too much! If I thought losing a significant amount of weight would change my times from anything other than mediocre then it might be worth it, but life's too short, and I'm too old, to pay that price! Would still like to shift just a few pounds though
Matt - quality running. I'm not surprised the 5.5M felt hard - proves you are still human after all
Always tricky to know what to do in that scenario. My best time at Ridgeway came on the back of a chest infection and some serious anti-biotics. Time was good, but I spent an awful lot of time coughing after!
Ric - you be careful in a strong breeze now won't you (I'm only jealous as I can't seem to stop eating at the mo, so weight is NOT shifting!)
That's going to test the legs Philip! Keep doing that and you'll be switching to ultras
15.1 hilly off-road today to give 56 for the week. Was supposed to be 16 on road, but the toe was too painful in my road shoes. Oddly it stopped hurting at all after about 5 miles (luckily!). Started very sluggishly and the uphills were hard, but fine for the second half and actually came out 7 mins quicker than the same run last week.
