Cracking result Dean. Well done.
Good XCing Andrew, well done for representing! I didn't make the last XC and whilst I could make the next one, I'll be out on my bike instead as Saturday is chockablock for me.
Pretty tasty 16miler Dachs! And a podium Simon, nice one.
It's easy for Dachs to say run more, but it depends on what the goal is. If you want to be a fast runner train like a runner. If you want to be a fast triafleet then train like on of those. As Scott says, this came up some time back - I don't do much running, but like Andrew we're already doing 7-8 hr weeks minimum. Banging on extra running isn't easy to schedule and a firm route to injury.
I'm in Switzerland/Liechtenstein this week. Visited the national track today - it's always empty. I have yet to see another runner in this country! 10x400m/400 RI. Aimed for 5km pace which gave 91s reps.
90, 92, 90, 90, 90, 91, 93, 91, 92, 92.
All in all, 6km of WU/CD/Commute to track, 4km of quality reps and 4km of RI. Longest run for some time, and most of it easy
