Light weight 

(probably literally after that!). Always good to get that last long one out the way and get to the taper...

5.5M xc double today. It was so muddy on the way home I thought I must have stumbled onto Parliament Hill

Oops - missing S!

Thanks Dachs - I'll be happy if at some point I can convert them into even a high 35 min 10k! Will need to get the number of reps up a fair bit and add some longer reps and tempo stuff over the next few weeks....

All ex SA guarding it SG - but only part time it seems

Dean - there I was thinking I'd done a decent session just now, and you come in with many more reps, much, much quicker and all off the back of man-flu and on an icy track

Well anyway, they let me on the track again today, so 7.5M with 2 x 3 x 800m in the middle off 400m jog rec and 2 mins between sets. I was focussing on controlling the pace rather than the usual blast and die and it looked phenomenally consistent on the watch with all showing 2;48, but only cos of the way Garmin round the 10ths down! Target was 2:50 (target 5k pace) and actually came out as 2;48, 2:49, 2:49, 2:49, 2:49, 2:49. happy enough with that as my first speed session for a while.

Interesting about the 5 bar gate bit and lack of anyone there - does that include weekends? I feel a visit coming on.....

I'll second that!

My bit of cycle route I do reps on is OK as there is virtually no entrances across it for a mile and no turns. It's not flat, but has a gentle incline and I think that actually helps simulate road conditions.

I do find reps on the track easier mentally though, as it feels like the right place to be doing them! Might try bluffing my way into the SM track again tomorrow

As long as that old man is Dean or Rob, you'll be fine Andrew 

Maybe the first one was a bit too quick after the recent time off????

Another easy 5M xc for me. Speed session tomorrow if I can get my act together....

8 miles from here, so not practical to run to for me! I just wish they'd put it at William Ramsay school like they wanted to! The track's a nice colour though....

Bet you have to pay as well, so won't catch SG there

I agree, not the best, you could easily end up in the Lake! Better than being squished though 

I used to do laps of the grass when I worked across the road. Fine in the summer when it was dry and firm, but no use this time of year....

If only we had a track in Wycombe

The marked 1M loop on the Rye is pretty flat - must be flatter than your road one? It is literally a complete loop of the lake, with the sharpest run being the bit over the bridge by the waterfall - not to tight. It has the distinct advantage of considerably less chance of being squashed by a car (though the swans can be nasty!) ! As for being on your doorstep - you can always take the long way there 

Philip - SG isn't on Strava so not a problem - only time I do it is as a warm-up/down for parkrun 


Didn't know Mr H did XC. Was he wearing his Italia jacket??

So many people I know have caught something nasty in hospital - you are far better off not getting ill 

Don't google symptoms Philip!!!!! 

SG - I can never understand why you don't do your 1M loops round the lake on the Rye - right on your doorstep, no traffic and fairly scenic?

8M off-road this morning, very muddy but pleasant enough and took it nice and slow. All seemed OK during and after. Dentist at lunchtime though!
