Cant help on the travel arrangements Alehouse. I understand that trains from central Glasgow to Hamden are free with commonwealth tickets. We are staying out west, at a place called Wemyss Bay, and we are getting the tain into Glasgow on Thursday morning, watching the road time trails and then getting the train over to the stadium for the evening Athletics session. We are in Berwick at the moment, quite a nice place actually. Heading up to Scotland on Monday.
Sounds like some good running Duck, especially the progressive.
I did 5 miles exploring Berwick at tea time, planning a tempo run on the promenade tomorrow.
Good week-off weather Mr V, at least for sunbathing, not so great for training!
CB: heat is a pace killer, don’t read too much into the paces you hit, just keep churning them out.
13.5miles on Monday, day off Tuesday and 12.5miles yesterday including club interval session: 6 x 3 mins with alternating 1 min and 2 min recoveries. Reps came out as follows: 5:23/mi (1), 5:20/mi (2), 5:20/mi (1), 5:11/mi (2), 5:17/mi (1) & 5:14/mi, faster reps all came after the 1 minute recoveries bizarrely. Take the paces with a pinch of salt as we were running round quite a tight oval on the cricket field, but still, it represents a decent amount of hurting on tired legs.
Feeling quite tired in general now, heading ooop north on Friday after work for 9 days, I will run but I have no plan as I need a down week to let recent harder training sink in. Looking forward to seeing some Commonwealth Games action, hope it’s better than the opening ceremony……
Saturday was weird Mr V, I ran with SM, setting off just after 8am and jogged 2m to warm up and it was grey and overcast and we were sweating buckets, it was horrid, I was thinking about just running steady at this point. We made a start and not long into the tempo the heavens opened up and rained for most of the 10 miles, which was a relief. Glad I stuck it out in the end, it was below McMP, but on a rolling course with some off-road, I’ll take that as a good training effort. 7:20s is a decent clip for a long run, you are throwing up some good training numbers at the moment.
Lots of good mileage Dr Dan, you should be building a pretty decent aerobic engine with the run/bike combo.
Don’t mind a gamble but find horse racing incredibly boring.
It’s quiet on here, anyone got any racing to tell us about?
Like DT, I ran 7 miles yesterday, feeling pretty tired in general. Plan is to see this week out best I can, but we go on holiday on Friday for 9 days, so training will continue but will be much lower volume compared to normal.
