AA - I definitely can't face doing intervals at the moment so well done for the 800s!
Barry - continued frustration
O4S - I think summer colds can be worse than winter ones sometimes. Hope the doc visit goes well and you get some answers.
I had my second YKW victory in as many attempts on Saturday. I'm definitely glad I've moved on from Norwich even though the times are slower. This one was Thetford - great course on grass and tracks, lots of fun lapping places as there were some multiple loops of different sections. I was intending to race it but felt very comfortable sitting around 7.05-7.10 pace and saw a couple of ladies ahead of me so targeted them in the last mile which was a 6.51, and ended up 1st lady in 21.31. Another one I'll definitely do again - really friendly group.
Sunday was 17.5 miles LSR, and then 3 miles recovery Monday and 5 miles tempo this morning. Diss 10k on Sunday - I'm hopeful I can PB, which is a relatively soft target of 43.30 set about 7 or 8 years ago I think (it's not even on Po10 it's that long ago). Last year I did 44.17 on the back of my heel problems and I should be quicker than that as long as I don't go off too quick and blow to pieces which is always a possibility....
That said, I am still a bit cautious with my calf - it needs a good warm up before it loosens up. And my left glute and hamstring is giving me a bit of grief as well. But not slowing me down yet
