Nell - quick stuff, more like HM pace. Take it easy with that calf, been there don't push it.
Carrot - Champs start - enjoy the experience, the way you are running you will be a permanent fixture there for many a year, is Parsnip off the same start? I know I will need some serious self control not to set off too quick come race day. Good luck for tomorrow.
2old - I'll be in pen 2 on blue probably, so you will get a less congested start. Nice 15 miler.
AA - Good luck and enjoy, if you can, for tomorrow.
14 mile blast on the bike yesterday morning, raised the seat by 10mm and was nearly 1mph faster than same ride on tuesday, swim club last night - lots of kicking.
20 miles this morning at 7:31 avg, plan was 3 slow, 3MP, 3slow, 3MP, 3 slow, 5 MP. Splits:3 slow - 8:11,7:52.7:52
3 MP - 7:19,7:18, 7:14
3 slow - 7:55,7:43,7:48
3 MP - 7:24,7:31,7:32 wtf
3 slow - 7:42,7:39,7:44 not slow enough
5 mp - 7:12,7:08,7:10,7:11,6:54
Legs not happy from the start, yesterday's bike and swim taking their toll maybe. I was n't happy during the second set of MP but the last 5 more than made up for it. So at mile 12 I was thinking another bad run which turned into a good run on tired legs.
