Ant- well done on the 3k. Sounds like hard work to me. Can't imagine how hard it must be to get the pacing right on such a short distance... surely it comes with experience.
KFC- that's some racing schedule you have there Can't believe you're running another mara this weekend... Happy tapering! I like your progressive running.
2Old- nice 7 miler yesterday, hope you're well on your way to a full recovery.
Chick- hope you feel better by Sunday. Good luck with the 10k.
Carrot- good luck tonight, go get them!
AA- nice swimming, glad to hear it wasn't freezing cold. Nice intervals too, you know they will get easier!
Simon- some mega cycling from you as always.
Thank you for all the congrats. Very excited about the new job, not so much about handing in my resignation. I have a feeling it won't go down very well.
Short track session for me yesterday- 2x 1m reps @ what's supposed to be my target 10k pace for tomorrow (6.50). Did them in 6.40 and 6.47 but can't say it felt like I could hold it for anything close to 6m... I am already dreading it.
Short steady run planned for later today with some strides.
I also managed to get plastered over the weekend. Got offered a new job on Friday which was a big deal so ended up celebrating in style (ekhem) with a lot of prosecco, red wine and cider.
That was followed by 80min steady run on Saturday. Started off feeling horrendous and thought I was going to have to give up on any form of decent speed but after 30min a miracle happened and I started feeling much better. Ended up doing almost 11m @ 7.47 so not too bad considering the state of me.
Sunday tempo intervals were more of a struggle but still managed to complete 3x 10min @ 7.10-7.20.
