Bus, come and do the Manchester 10K with me on the 18th instead!!
5 x 1KM @5K pace (90 seconds recovery) - wasn't great session nor a terrible one. Form was good but legs didn't;t quite have the zip or power in them. Forgot how hard this pace zone is to hit. Reps came out as 3:26, 3:27, 3:30, 3:31, 3:29.
Didn't help having such a small groups with a load of clueless youngsters in who rattled out 78 for the first 400 despite having 3K PBs of around 10:30! Nobody to run with so sat behind the lead 3 and well ahead of the rest of the pack.
Our lads in the fast group were doing 2:49 reps! Sweet Jesus!
A good outing and nice to duck the sub 6 barrier. I found my only track 5K a very tough challenge mentally, much prefer the roads.
One thing for the disaster of Wednesday is it seems to have blasted the last of the lurgy off my chest and today is the first day I've not coughed or weezed in the slightest. Best of all I can now start singing in the car again! Touch wood I can stay healthy now.
Did a nice little 4.5 just now at dusk down the river. Lovely.
Good luck tomorrow Ric, hope it isn't too warm for you.
Dean, great session and will hopefully give you the edge for Christleton.
I'm having a go at my local forest parkrun tomorrow to put the ghost of 5 mile past behind me. I was going to do a 5 mile RR 'Run the Bridge' over Runcorn bridge but I think a parkrun then a long Sunday run will be more beneficial.
