Great racing Dean! A 55 400 after a 9.15!!!!! I'd do well to break 8 minute miling after the 3000. You've surely got to have a bash at the Abbeydash after some of the quick stuff you've ran on the track.
Well done on the MT10k SS. Get a few XC races in then get yourself in for the Abbeydash too. I very nearly didn't run it last year as I didn't feel I was in any sort of shape to run a PB and i exceeded all expectations. Could well be a case of what if, if you don't give it a go.
Hopefully it's nothing too serious Bus, no doubt a couple of days off is completely out of the question!
decent outing on the bike Iron!
great mileage Dachs. Is that with the commute to work? Surely a good base for the 1/2 and 10k training.
Starting to up my mileage a bit, 64 last week with 14 on Saturday, and 15 on Sunday with a progressive 11 in the middle. Finished with a 5.50 last mile that felt harder than any mile I ran in last weeks half. Should've just been running easy but thought I'd see how my legs were. Tired! I don't think wearing my nike Pegasus helps for trying to run anything quick. always struggle to run anything quick in them. Another 10 tonight at 6.44 pace that felt decent.
Hope things get better soon on the Achilles front iron.
Will you have to get one of them elastic straps to keep the specs on when running?
Scrapped the idea of the 5km tonight. Legs not fully recovered from Sunday. Managed a 10 and a 4 today at above 7 min miling and will do 15 tomorrow. Away up Fort William next Friday to Sunday for the Ben Nevis race although I'm not racing. I'm going to have a jog up though and take some pictures hopefully. Planning on getting a couple of tempos in this week and get some decent miles in.
each time the marathons come along I'm finding myself drawn to having a go. With my daughter coming along last year I didn't think I'd manage to get the miles so thats why i stuck to the 10ks but I've managed to fit them in no bother.
my main goal is my 10k time and maybe ill have a go once I've hit my target.
