Gaz - Well done on getting out with the wine and curry hangover!
Stewart - Hope the 20 goes to plan today
Joe - Good luck for the half
Tek - Good work on the 8 miles the day after that interval session. I'd likely have done 4 max following that. Can't wait to see what the progression on the intervals is from that, although I think I know where it might be going...
NP - Nice training double. Wouldn't fancy marshalling at parkrun in this weather though!
Tricia - Hope you manage to out a run on the route. I'm hopefully going to do Tyndrum-Bein Glas Farm-Tyndrum in the next few weeks.
NN - I'm actually the same, work constant nights (with the occasional weekend dayshift) I've just not slept well at all this week, so I was completely run down by Thursday afternoon.
Excellent 13 miles and that's going to be a cracking total for the week!
Not going to do the planned 12, but should get at least 8 today so mileage will be down a touch but should still be a decent weekly total. Haven't decided whether to do parkrun or the XC training session (which has absolutely no relevance to any of my races!) this morning.
NN - Impressive tempo effort, especially only a couple of days after the 20. I really struggled with my fast run on Tuesday, 2 days after my long run. I think I also had the same rubbish sleep as you, at least it's the weekend in the morning!
Tek - Fantastic effort! The only way you'll get me to run 6 miles at 6:40 is in a 10k race. Well, hopefully! Quite impressed you jogged the recoveries, my recoveries last week consisted of 2 minutes of lying on a wet service road...
Gaz - Well done on the 8 miles, curry night sounds like a good idea!
MG - Another couple training double
Stewart - Well done on getting out in the snow. It was pretty heavy here just as i planned to go out, so I didn't bother... Good 10 on Tuesday too
NP - Great run/swim double!
Fiona - The intervals are a bit of an odd distance but, but thats probably because we're limited to where you can take a group of 30 or so runners for a longer interval session during the winter. The parks round here aren't well lit, unfortunately.
Good work on the intervals and easy run, and the turbo session sounds a better idea than going out in the snow!
Had planned to do 12 tonight, but not sure I can be bothered. Contemplating going to the club run as it'll be on the road instead of the track, but don't think my legs will like that. Might even just go back to bed
Gaz - Those sounds some nasty hills! 5 minute miling coming down must have been fun!
Tricia - Good interval session I'm doing the D33 (which will be my first ultra) as my longest training run as I'm not sure I'd be able to convince myself to run 50k alone.
10 miles with 3x~1.9km intervals (7:41, 7:42, 7:49)
Bit disappointed with the pace but done quite a lot (by my standards) recently so not surprised by it. Decided against the 4th rep as I was really struggling on the 3rd rep, and just under 8km of effort is way too much when I've still got work to go to tonight...
