Well done in Florence Jimbob and Selbs. Nice V40 gong CW. Nice work on the hill reps PP and nice long run Wardi. I got 11M in yesterday before the wind got really bad fortunately. Feeling like I've put on about half a stone during this recovery period, hopefully it will all disappear in the new year!
I was at a corporate event today and US sprinting legend Michael Johnson was giving a keynote. It was interesting stuff although his attempts to draw parallels between managing his training to compete in both 200 and 400m and the challenges facing IT Infrastructure Managers were somewhat excruciating! Anyway, one thing he said which I thought might interest you folks (esp PP) was about a runner's internal metronome. He was talking about a 400m race and saying his plan was to go through 200m in 21.2s, and that he would know if he'd hit or missed that to within 0.04s just from his internal clock. Amazing.
RS - definitely an unorthodox training plan, but hey, whatever works! Best of luck for the race anyway.
Still in recovery mode here, week 4 of the P&D 5-week recovery cycle. So no sessions really, barring some strides. Out for 7M yesterday, saw Lev bombing along the towpath towards me like the devil was at his heels!
Well done to both CD and Dan. Not sure I'd have fancied racing in today's conditions. Superb for you both to dig out prize-winning performances. I found an 8M easy run was not so easy once I got off road and into the fields. The wind was horrendous.
Matt, funnily enough I was thinking of putting myself forward to do some pacing as well. Like you I find the idea quite appealing. Not VMLM though, I'll be racing that!
