Morning - some quality training going on as always.
DrD - all the best. Hope all goes well!
Lev - sounds great - very jealous. I'd love a wee stint out in Kenya! I'd need some pretty good sunblock though with my pale blue complexion! And, like others have said - more stories would be most welcome!
PP - tailwind? Is that the treadmill belt spinning you round? Nice to throw in a faster mile in there. I'm no fan of treadmill sessions at all!
CW - as a latecomer, I don't get the potatoes reference at all...
RS78 - I see you're a Newcastle fan... You may (or may not) have some local-ish knowledge of good use to me! I got a call yesterday that means I may be heading to Durham 3 days a week (Tuesday-Thursday) for a few months. Any ideas of good places to run / train in Durham?? I see there's a 400m track at the University, so hopefully I'll be able to use that on a Tuesday evening.
TR - sounds promising for the youngster! Is that in athletics or something else?
SJ - well done getting 10 done in rubbish conditions
Tmoth - that looks like another solid session!
Padams - nice one getting the biggest month in 5 years!!
bainspj - I doubt I could stomach that amount of time on a turbo - it would bore the hell out of me.
30 mins easy for me this morning, will be followed by 1:45 easy tomorrow (which is normally Sunday, but juggling things a bit this weekend) to round off another good week. That should take me up to about 48ish for the week I think:
M - 30 mins recovery (3.78 miles @ 8:05)
T - 4x 10 mins @ threshold (6:23/mile / 6:22 / 6:28 / 6:23) off 90sec recoveries (total incl WU / CD - 10.26 miles)
W - 60 mins easy (8.01 miles @ 7:46)
Th - 10 mins @ 10k (6:16/mile) 75s rec, 6x 800m (2:57.1 / 2:57.7 / 2:57.6 / 2:57.0 / 2:56.4 / 2:56.6) off 75s rec (total incl. WU / CD - 8.94 miles)
F - 30 mins easy (3.78 miles @ 8:00)
S - 1:45 easy
Should bring in about 210 miles for January. Highest ever by 40+ miles...! A tad artificial as Saturday's run should be in February, but still...
