Welcome Marcus. You definitely look easily capable of sub 3:30 based on those PBs.
I booked a spring race today...sorry to disappoint you guys but it wasn't Halstead, it was another HM. Great Bentley on Feb 9 (so winter rather than spring really).
Club intervals tonight, another good session - 10 x 1/3 mile, more than half of which is up a gradual incline, then jog 300m back down to the start. Paces were all between 5:37-5:55mm - quite a bit faster than when I last did that session - and the last one was the quickest (although it did make me feel ), so very pleased with how my running's going at the moment.
Excellent 10k time Col - you know you're running well when you're disappointed with a time like that.
A tough, hilly, progressive 15-miler for me last night. Basically did 6 x a 2.5 mile loop which wasn't very exciting but meant I could do the hilliest bit of town repeatedly and aimed to do each 5-mile section a bit faster than the last). Averaged 7:49mm. First 5 @ 8:18mm, then 5 @ 7:47, then 5 @ 7:30. My legs were really feeling the hills by the end and was far from a comfortable effort. Did a tempo on the same route on Friday night and did 5 @ 6:54.
Just about feeling back to normal after the weekend now. Can't do all-day drinking these days! Well, I can do, it's just the days after that are the problem!
Managed easy/steady 7 on Sunday, 7 on Monday and then felt great at club intervals last night. 8 x 3min pushes with 90secs rest. Undulating route so splits varied, but averaged about 5:50mm and, as a few of the fast guys were missing, found myself out in front which was a nice change
