MK seems the likely "racing" one, but I keep getting drawn towards off road , mountain and trail ones....Southampton too offer one the same day as VLM, so in two minds about that. Both a bit pricey too (£45)
Morning Nice report Ollie, and fwiw I think your goals and targets are achievable. Joining a club is definitely a step in the right direction, like minded club mates will be a good asset. I'm impressed you can remember any of the detail of Abingdon, its a fast course but wouldn't quite make the "1000 scenic runs in Britain" book!
what - club night why - Tuesday last rest - Friday last hard - Sunday
Morning Lyric - I think so, yesterday was "move any Mountain" - the Shamen
what - easy run at lunchtime why - recovery last rest - Friday last hard - yesterday
Definitely have some work to do to improve my road speed. One of our V60s ran a low 40 yesterday - I beat him over XC last week by a similar margin. Just goes to show that the surface you primarily train on can have an influence. Not rushing back to a 10k, but it certainly won't be as long until the next one. Plans beginning to hatch for the next 12 months: XC this winter, increase mileage in the spring (marathon in May/June - I should be aiming for the 3:20 GFA), then target short stuff over the summer.
