Sounds rotten Simon and Iron; hope you both 100% soon.

Thanks SG; you're right maxing a HM needs more miles but to find time I'd have to give up some cycling which is enjoyable and used to/from work. More injury risk too.

BTW looked at my last 9 HM's over 5 years on PO10 and if I did a parkrun the day before. The 4 HM's when I did were 1st, 2nd, 5th and 8th fastest! No bias as mostly Wokey or Fleet. A small sample and agree a hard 5k the day before seems stupid.  

I'm racing a large, long distance duathlon in Copenhagen in May, my A-race so to speak.

The day before I have a choice of 3 parkruns within 10km. WWPD?

A sensible decision though Simon. It's hard to be self-aware and always desperate to smash out the next interval-fest.

I'm still a bit snotty and sore throat so canned the 7mi progression run for 6mi easy. I feel a lot better for having done it too, rather than yesterday's arrival back home.

You're forgetting about the Dorney wind SG.

5km as 1 loop would be nice, but half of that in to wind... I've done some races there where the run leg is 1.25km long so 2x out and back. Apart from the dead turns it's a nice way to get a good 5km time and break it down.

AG, Dorney is private but anyone and everyone uses it.

Pete - DS Trainer has 10mm drop so probably like most of your normal trainers.

Ric HM is a long way!

Thanks for the code SG. Is that one of the bye-bye parkrun codes?

Nice one Ric.

Is that DS Trainer or DS Racer?

Easy 8 today. Still feeling bleaurgh and will probably convert tomorrow's speedwork to an easy session.

Shocking Bus. Have you been TUPE'd?

I hope the extra moolah covers the tax on the car. And NEVER take the fuel card option! We drive absolutely everywhere to make a dent in to the fuel card - I have to do 2 tanks of private mileage a month to break even. I chose a very economic car

I seem to have picked up a sore throat. Earlier I'd advised a coachee not to attend tomorrow's session if they had a sore throat as it would not be beneficial. I will, of course, still head out for my easy long run tomorrow AM.

I hope it's not the thing (can't remember spelling) again SG. Good to be back?

I suppose Bus donated one of his 250 days of holiday to the other staff members.

Phil's summary is what I have experienced. It can get more complicated when it is a conference or some such event. I suspect Taiwan will be manic so it will be early mornings.

I normally get overtaken for the first half of XC then start to pick places up consistently until the finish. I do start close to the front to avoid the bottlenecks.

SG I had 3 weeks off at the end of the season and it worked. I was rested and raring to go when I restarted in Dec.
Woodley must be muddy if you only did a 19:08 Pete! Nice run Phil.

Easy 5mi today after last night's excesses. First alcoholic drink since NYE. Needless to say the bottle of red caused quite the headache today and calves were like lead. Oddly enough I ran down a lane that I last ran down whilst hungover post work Xmas bash.

Off to Taiwan on Friday so this week will be interesting.
