5 warm miles for me at lunchtime. Was running to the track, then changed my mind as I felt very tired from watching the football last night and further lack of sleep due to the heat. Just wanted to get the session out of the way and get back to an air conditioned office.7.05 average, that'll do.
Only 66 miles for me in June but I do seem to be maintaining good pace. A few bike rides totalling 250-odd miles with over 10,000ft of climbing has seen my leg strength benefit.
Small numbers compared to most but the plan is to get the London-Surrey 100 out of the way and then get back to building big run miles going into the autumn to set a decent base before the VLM16 campaign.
Nice purchase there, Gul. You'll work that strap out and then be addicted to the stats like me.
Some good weekend work going on there, team. well played.
I was supposed to cycle 75 miles yesterday but my son was called into work so had to bin it. It worked in my favour really as I was short of a run for the week. Didn't do parkrun on Saturday as too busy, so a cheeky little 10.6 miler yesterday was just the ticket.
Didn't time it but I got stronger as it went on. Very pleased as it's the longest run for over a month. Have decided not to time any runs this week and just get some miles covered in this heat and will only do short 5 milers to avoid over-heating. As you can tell, I don't do heat!
39 splendid miles on the bike last night with personal records set on the 3 climbs of Ranmore common (from Dorking), Crocknorth Lane and Box Hill. Legs felt great.
Anyway, gutted to see that the Surrey Half Marathon has been scheduled for April 17th. One week before London, same day as Brighton, similar time to Manchester (tbc) and just after Paris. Not the brightest idea to go for that date. Maybe they just want people only doing HMs and not using the event as a strong training race for the full marathon distance?
Really enjoyed it this year. It's my 'home' event. Might volunteer but it will be disappointing to be there and not take part.
