Stickless - that sounds like an excellent plan
Don - did well to get out in daylight
DD - tasty long run, any race in mind?
wabo - sorry to hear you missed the fun, but probably the wisest move. Personally I loved it, bit of something for everyone, and ran so much better than last year. Good to have some decent hills and long stretches to stride out (and mud).
what - 3 easy
why - all I had time for
last rest - week ago
last hard - saturday

what - 1h35 easy running around Eastleigh while eldest had county hockey
why - convenience

Joe - good result for a non A race
dibs - nice to have you back, and with nothing broken on the slopes!
RFJ - sorry I wasn't too chatty today: had just arrived and needed to sort some numbers.

As for the race, well I loved it! A course to rival Parliament Hill, hills, mud, long tracks to stretch the legs, twists and turns through the trees! Coped with the hills ok, and had plenty left for the last lap. Overall very pleased, just over 70 mins for the ~15k course.
Hope wabo had a good race....

sounds busy alehouse, and nice to get 11 done before breakfast chicka!
Wabo - good luck at Brighton, should be there too, only 15k for us old men...
what - short run plus U11 coaching
why - thursday routine
last rest - monday
last hard - effort wise Tuesday but yesterday was tough: 10 hours at work (plus commute) then QoP, so only window was post 9pm when I'd rather not have gone out again. But managed an easy 5 miles at faster than 'sedantary pace'
So missed a midweek mlr, hey ho.

yes to the lyric too.

good sessions RFJ, Don & Chunky. Yasso sessions can be a good pointer, how many reps did your coach have you doing last night?
What - a run hopefully. Have lunchtime work meeting and QoP session booked tonight so will be as and when time allows (if at all).
Why - recovery. Yesterday was 5x1mile reps on grass. Very tough, ground still quite boggy in places.
last rest - monday
last hard - yesterday

what - club night, either 5x1 mile or 5 tempo, not decided which yet.
why - training
last rest - yesterday in the end, work conspired against me getting out at lunhctime, evening taken up by club committee meeting.
last hard - Sunday
