Good going Dachs, and an impressive result in the end.
Excellent race Dachs, a 5k in spikes.... my calfs are aching at the thought! Showed some grit to stay with it later on and get a very sharp time. Congrats. I was once told that you can tell if you have the right pace in a track race if you feel like you want to quit at 2/3rds to the end. Sounds like you did.
I don't know about the calves, but after an XC season in spikes it was the balls of my feet that were really hurting.
Dean - I've heard similar about a 5k. If you want to throw up by mile 2 it's paced correctly.
In terms of Taggart vs Sugarbabes wasn't it Morse that then famously became Lewis? In terms of bands that kept the same name but had a complete line-up change we cannot miss out Atomic Kitten.
A nice easy 60misn low HR along the Taff yesterday, barely scraping 9km. Calves are still sore from the progression run which was the first speed session since before the hols. TTing tonight then the British Triathlon club relay champs at the weekend. I am in a 'fun' team
