Committing to the Effort

Congrats Well done.

Also give you a nice target to aim for either later in the year or next year to beat your PB

It sounds like you are getting there

Me... Well I had a great holiday in the Lake District and and with that and trying to be sensible and heal the knee i've hardly ran.  Back to it now.

i've got a cadence and a speed sensor for my mountain bike and stuck it on a turbo trainer it's fun actually seeing your speed and cadence.  The first time I tried to get my cadence I ended up at around 60 for a half hour session, and then read it should be more like 80-90.  so second time i stopped being lazy and was up at 81rpm. Bit better but hard work.

I'm now trying to alternate a short run and the turbo trainer.  Will see how that goes.
