Well G-Dawg if there is a time to lose your job then it is now as everyone is now coming back to the office and realising they need to recruit. Lots of effort and uncertainty though for you to get back in a job. Sorry to hear it.
It seems to have been tempo/LT run season in the last week and some good times already been posted.
Thanks for your great report Badbark - your fitness seems to be consistently improving and you seem to be positioning yourself for a new mara PB at your target marathon.
That's one way of getting in big miles KR. Back to backs have always been a problem for me in preparing for ultras as I found the lack of recovery prompted injury on the second day if I wasn't super-careful about going into it well rested. I would be very interested to hear what your response is to this session in your 100miler. Certainly already you would have a good psychological effect as you know now that you can complete the race.
Bit of a set-back here as I've switched back to a pair of Addidas trainers that caused blisters a few months ago - now my body from the hips down is grumbling - so much so that I struggled with a 10km recovery run last night. Need to get myself into some ASICS if the supply problems of this country allow. Unfortunate timing as I've a 10km race tomorrow that is going to be the measure of all the speedwork I've been doing recently.
Positively my RHR is gone down to 50 in the first time since I've been living at modest high altitude, but far away from the 38-42 of being fit at sea-level. Still positive progress.
