Good reports everybody - glad to hear of some excellent times and that everybody came out unscathed. One of our club collapsed at the finish in Manchester and has absolutely no recollection at all of the last couple of miles or the immediate aftermath of the finish. Still got his GFA time though - did all his training on a treadmill at 7:30 pace
Proper speedwork tonight 3 x 6 x 200m, done as a shuttle run in teams of 3, not something we do very often. The distance actually turned out slightly short of 200, but got progressively longer as the runners at both ends kept moving back until it was at least 25-30m longer than at the start and the last few were recorded as 200. That resulted in times ranging from 29 to 32 secs, but the average pace was 4:24 per mile, which is faster than Mo Farah will go on Sunday. BOTF faster than Mo Farah shocker!
