Iron - I've got a track 20 secs away from my front door! It's now half as wide and tarmac with 'exercise' points round it. Obviously it's busy with bloody dog walkers and kids on scooters!! Weird as the other photos show my estate being built too!

Very close! According to Google mine is 1mile away walking though as the crow flies it is ~1250m. Your estate looks similar to the half-built Taylor Wimpey clone that I live in.

I like the track directory though it does need updates. Bracknell is no longer 95p a go!

That has always been the problem with the (or any) club track session AG. We get 20mins of quality if all goes well. I think I once pushed it on a quiet session and did 10x400 but that is normally unheard of.

I now prefer to spend less money going to the same track on my own and doing a different slightly, longer quality session. Horses for courses though as I prefer the club rides to going out on my own for a long one.

Cheese and port is always good fuel for anything.

30mins super easy today. Easing back in, so nice to run.

Fair enough. One year I won a fun prize at the club awards for doing 3x6mi loops. I didn't see the hilarity in this, it seemed perfectly sensible.

Ah. I've run around there a few times, and it is much flatter. Still, 13 times is a lot.

Bloody hell Dean - 10x800. Hardcore!

Bus - good solid reps too; very consitent. You've informed me why my Garmin laps times are always different when analysed post-session. Hadn't realised that was what was happening.

Nice long run SG. 13 laps of the park Dachs? After 4 for WU + parkrun the top-up laps after seem horrendously samey. This must be the outdoor running equivalent of 2hr treadmill sessions in front of a blank wall.

I considered programming the watch this morning but manned up and used the lap button. Less pressure.
10x1min reps/1min RI on the turbo. At last I have remembered how to suffer on the bike. Unfortunately this was in my hotel room so all my kit was soaked after barely 40 minutes on the bike. And our washing machine is still broken and the new one is still on order.

30mins easy run tomorrow then F-off.

Careful with all this talk of track reps. You'll be running round thinking about the pain with exertion, pain in chest and shortness of breath! Actually I'm worried too as my ear infection causes jaw pain; more so in the morning.

30min easy on the treadmill this morning. Why do I always pick the one that makes loud noises when running...

Sounds like Tadley TVXC Simon. Good effort though!

I have ear ache after going to Coral Reef last Wednesday evening. It kept me awale Friday night.

SG - does it hurt more than your Wycombe 10k outcomes?

A 19:03 PB didn't sit well with a 38:XX the next day either!

Good effort though Pete!

Ah, back to work tomorrow  Still, only 5 weeks and two days until the next break up to the Lakes 

 

My wife is a part-time teacher and she seems to work more than you do! I missed your height gain this week. Impressive.

Matt, I'm sure if you contacted a local race they'd happily let you pace. FWIW British Blind Sport are trying to build a list of people over the country that would guide for running and UKA/EA are pushing this too. The workshop was free.
