I did some running at lunchtime - I was supposed to run 11 miles yesterday but slept in and I've got a hard looking 16 miles to run on Sunday so I went for a light quality session of 8 miles with 5 * 600m at whatever pace they came out at off 200m slow jog recovery which worked out at about 90 secs. I'm out of practice at doing these because the first one was just ridiculously fast and I paid for it in rep 4.
2:04, 2:10, 2:11, 2:14, 2:11.
On 3rd March I did this session and ran 4*2:09 and last one at 2:04 so I'm slower but not irretrievably slower - the comeback continues...
DT - had you reported your weight accurately then the TTT would have helped inform you that your fitness issue was a fatness issue.
I'm quite scared of big angry men with long sharp knives and can imagine that if I ever went to a safari park (possibly it would be called a prison?) where they had a 'Big Angry Men with Sharp Knives Enclosure' that I would also assume they would be behind glass (or bars) and would also leg it when they charged towards me upon entering. I would hope I would remember my parental instinct but who knows.
