DT – Very frustrating for you. What are your thoughts on the coaching overall? I have to say I’m beginning to wonder if their schedules are simply too tough. You’ve ended up injured, I ended up over trained, one of my mates who is coached by them is out with a stress fracture. It might be ok doing 3 hard sessions a week if you are a 2.17 marathoner but for us mere mortals perhaps it’s too much.
DT – That’s rubbish news. Hopefully the physio appointment went well and it’s just a minor setback.
It’s been a very easy week for me so far. A couple of easy 10ks so far and that’s it. I think experience has taught me halfs need more recovery than you might think. Will do a few easy miles tonight and depending on how the legs feel possibly have a crack at a parkrun time tomorrow.
DT – Thanks, yeah it’s about a 2 minute improvement. I agree completely and I am indeed happy to have run a PB. I also beat a lot of rivals from my club, some of whom I wouldn’t have expected to. It seems like a lot of people struggled in the heat. Usually that’s me but I think because it was hot but not humid I was ok. It’s the humidity that really kills me. Good(ish) news on your injury. Hopefully no reaction when you run tonight.
