Skinny, good question. I did 8 miles a couple of weeks ago, and my average pace was 7.25 with no identifiable warm up or cool down as i hadnt planned anything, I just seemed to get gradually faster. Would I have been better off warming up then having a middle bit that was much faster than the warm up and/or my average pace of the whole run and still ending up with roughly the same average pace?
Good to see you building back up, Marrows. Are you doing p and d again?
Im going to have to step back from running a bit again as there seems to be some issue back in my hip/glute/itb. Its felt a bit tight the last few days then the other night I twisted my leg around whilst sat on the sofa and the area cramped up. Its been quite sore since.
In view of the fact I am labouring with a cough which makes running much less enjoyable, and there are 4 consecutive days over xmas were I wont be able to do a thing anyway I am not so bothered about a slight early bath, especially knowing that things should happen as of 05th January.
