Hey folks, great going everyone!! 

Im taking it a little easy at the moment but look forward to building things up again. Might take a trip to the doctor and see if I can get this hamstring looked at.

AG I think it depends on what you are working on, speed or distance. If its speed I cant help you much ha ha ha! Distance on the other hand is my bag! 

General strength training I find has great benefits. Work on your core and head for the hills. Try sprinting uphill then trot down, its going to burn but build you up.

I dont really feel like I can give you advice on speed because.....well, im not speedy!

AG thats some great miles well done! Not really sure about the science behind it all. I go with the tried and tested "leg it till you cant breath then slow down a bit, continue to leg it until legs go wobbly or you reach the finish line" approach when it comes to 5k

AG -Yeah maybe ill give a park run a go soon and see what I have I know what you mean about getting carried away, I guess I do a lot of stuff that is either on my own or and ultra so you are not really "racing". Great stuff on the 10 mile then hitting the weights! I find trying to run the last bit of any long run hard feels great once you are done.

Had a nice 4 mile hilly walk with MS last night to stretch the legs then this lunchtime I hit the gym for a gentle (ish  ) spin. Racked up 17km in 30 minutes so not bad and helped stretch the legs

JR - yep a b2b for b2b!

AG - you can ease yourself into the "naked" run by running a route you know really well Yeah I went off pretty hard but was exactly what I wanted to do at the time. I knew I was going to blow up but I wanted to see how far I could go first! I love experimenting Good luck with the parkrun I would also love a sub 23! My closest was on a treadmill at 23:55, not hit anywhere near it outside thought I think 27 something or maybe something in the late 26`s?

slinger - I wasn't sure about the multi laps at first but it was actually really fun because you can look for places to speed up. It was nice to know there was a hill coming up as im getting pretty good at tackling them I would recommend those 3 days rest for sure, get a bit more spring in your step

JR - Thanks JR I did think that even at the time, if I hadn't had gone off quite so hard I might have been able to grab another lap. Not sure I could grab another 1 in the time limit  I cant do the one in April as i have the marathon and the nohtaram eht double the fun!!
