Jools - you make me sound like a flake when I claim tiredness after 64 miles in 6 days. Well done, super volume!
But anyway that's what I chalked up last night with 5 miles steady which came out at 7.01 pace. I was really pleased with that considering the cumulative effect of 5 quality sessions and 59 miles on the previous days and I ran well within myself too, well, steady.
A day off today, seeing a client in Bury...BURY!!!...ON A FRIDAY!!! Turned out well though, cracking people.
5 cheeky miles first thing tomorrow and then Champagne and fine dining Cotswolds way.
Nice cold running GM, I know all about that right now!
Loving the gymfails, Poacher. Keep 'em coming.
Club night last night. Ran there and back and the session was intervals of 200,175,150,125,100 (all x 4) with jog recs. 5 mies exactly and the run to and from the track took me to 11 miles for the night.
Fast forward to today. Working on a document so working from home. I started early and will finish late so I gave myself a long lunch and got my 15 miler in at lunchtime. Can't do it at the weekend as I'm in a fancy Cotswolds hotel for my mate's 50th.
It was bloomin' cold today and my legs could feel the track session from last night, the hill reps from the night before that, the 6 miler the day before that and the 20 miler the day before that!
Somehow I managed to do it at 7.21 pace. Amazing! Especially as the hills were particularly troublesome. 59 miles in 5 days in LOADS for me.
Still got 2 runs to get my 5 sessions in before I leave on Saturday, so more miles tomorrow and a cheeky small one first thing Saturday.
Went to a new hill tonight for a few reps. Bashed up it 4 times with jog down recoveries. The uphill was 0.25 of a mile with 45 ft of incline, so just about right for a quality session. Running there and back managed 7 miles at 7.25 pace. Felt good.
