O4S- whoop whoop! Many congrats and looking forward to the report.
2Old- Well done on the last LR. Good pace!
Ant- I don't think racing a couple of 5ks will do you any harm. It doesn't take long to recover from them and as you say they're good sharpeners.
Free- hope your early morning intervals went well. I quite like doing them before work. It means they're out of the way and I don't have to spend the rest of the day obsessing...
Chick- good run and take it easy, sounds like you need to rest.
8m for me last night on the way home from work at just under 8mm with a few @ 7.40-7.50. I didn't push the pace or look at the garmin and it felt a lot better than the last few runs so hopefully the legs are waking up a bit. Rest today and parkrun tomorrow.
