Lyrics: Not today
What : * mile gentle
Why: Did a brisk (For me) 23.44 park run yesterday
Last Rest: Thursday I think
Last hard: Yesterday

So using HR as a guide goals for the year : Sub 2 half, sub 45 10k and sub 22 5k without over exerting. Can only be done with slow build up and will need to hold back on all three. Could be a challenge, especially the days I feel good

Good luck to all runners today, competing and otherwise.

Head been a bit screwed up as waiting for annual MoT. Cleared to jog for another year, keeping BP/HR down. Nothing competitive, no fartlek, no sprints but good news is agreed I can carry on up to half but no faster than 9's. I shall now give self a talking too and get out of the rut and back on the forums.

LMH 30-50% down. chance. Off to Lisbon in two weeks when I'll try and improve on last weekend's 2.08 at Newport
