MG - That's a cracking run, especially with the backpack on. I found that it really slowed me down at first even when it's pretty unweighted.
Tek - Still a good effort, only a handful of seconds slower than last time? And I assume it was pretty warm down your way? Is your HRM playing up, as I noticed your HR stats on fetch looked incredibly low for a raced 5k.
8 miles @ 8:15 done. Done a 4k out, and back section that we did our tempo run last week on and came to the conclusion that that surface isn't good for my legs. Felt pretty sore by the time I got back on to the paths. Not looking forward to the 10k race down there next month, as part of the groups race series! Might just skip it and save myself for the track 5000m the next night!
NN - Good to hear that your cleared to run again, take it easy though!
Joe - That's a bit of a mental week coming up! And no doubt you'll still beat me by at least half an hour next Sunday!
40x25 swim last night. Did club session instead of parkrun this morning as felt slightly off. Was too hot anyway, really hope it's not like that next week. 4x 1mile at what was meant to be about 10k pace, first rep, 6 minutes flat... I'll let you guess how the other 3 felt. I actually called it quits after 3, but got bullied into doing the 4th.
Tek - Nice easy run today, good luck at parkrun tomorrow
Tricia - Well done on the double run commute
NP - A 2 week taper would assume I still have over 2 weeks to go. I'm 9 days out, legs aren't too bad though compared to this stage in previous cycles. Good track session yesterday Good luck with your 10k
MG - Well done on the 8 yesterday
Joe - Good luck at the Cakeathon
Just back from helping my brother move some of his stuff as he's moving next week. Had planned to have been swimming by now, but a 70 minute journey took nearly 2 hours 15 so it'll be about 8 before I get to the pool
Parkrun tomorrow, if my legs feel anything like they did before yesterdays session I really think I can get sub 20 at Falkirk which would be more important to me than trying for an outright 5k PB elsewhere. I was amazed how strong I was feeling.
Tek - Bloody hell, that's a tough session! Well done
MG - Nice steady 6 miles
Stewart - Well done on the 5 miles
NP - Nice couple of doubles in there, what distances are you racing over the next 4 weeks?
Started my taper sensibly yesterday, by doing some intervals with the cub Quite amusing when we hit the hill at the end of each rep as my legs made it very clear that they had ran 18 the day before! Upper body weights at the gym tonight, no running.
