OO – I take it you are targeting a comfortable sub 3 then? I'm aiming for sub 2:54 for a PB. Good luck in your Parkrun and race.
KR – Glad you got your buzzing buddy back. Good ‘naked’ session without it!
Fraz – Good luck in Manc. P&D is hard to beat for a cookie cutter schedule.
MsE – Excellent reps and 10 miler. You’ll be grand!
I ran 9 miles this morning including 3 x 1 mile intervals targeting 5k pace. It was balls to the wall stuff as I still felt the 10k race and 16.2 mlr back to back runs in my legs. I managed the reps in 5:52, 5:48 and 5:47 for an average of 5:49 which is exactly my PB 5k pace. Happy days.
I represented N.Ireland in Masters XC last year and was thinking of wearing my NI vest in London. Does anyone think this would be a bit cheesy? I’d love to hear the odd spectator cheering on my country rather than my name. ‘Goan Norn Iron, yee boy yee’!
