Wow Malcs, Can't believe you do a progression at the end of a 20 miler, although I guess my training is making my legs constantly tired, so I can't imagine too much faster than 8:30 mm for any length of time.
Reiki, sounds like an interesting analysis- what do you think of it? Does it seem consistent with your experience?
I've had another high mileage week... Am now at a total of 220 miles for the month, my most previously was July where I did 180ish, and that included 43 miles at TR24 and the Lakeland trails marathon. No races this month, just lots of training. I did another 21 miles on the Essex way yesterday, and saw a grass snake!!! managed to take a picture - it was so small and really struggled to slither across the road, but as soon as it got onto the grass verge on the other side of the road it began moving very fast! And then this morning, I ran to parkrun, ran parkrun with my hubby (who drove), then ran home, then out with a client who's training for a half marathon, so did a total of 14 miles. My first significant back to back long run, and actually the later miles felt better than the earlier ones.
My legs are feeling quite tired though, so I'm going to keep the mileage low this week- I've got a 10k race next weekend, and then bacchus marathon the following weekend - I'll taper for Saltmarsh 75 from there.
