Hill done, it worked out at 7 repeats but i was going quite quick in the rain wind and it was cold.

I could feel my ankles and i was thinking about the placement of my feet, i definately need new shoes, i could feel them rolling inwards. Hopefully get some tomorrow, and then use them on sunday for the LSR, nothing like breaking them in fast.

I was so hoping you had got it wrong. I am looking at some new shoes at the moment, wont arrive before Sunday - could be painful again !!!

Hitting that hill tonight.

Had a good run tonight, and my back stood up to it.

12 x 400m repeats. I did the first few with 200m jog in between and then the remainder were with 100m walk and 100m jog. 

If felt quite good, the last repeat i started to lose my shape just, but it was pretty good all the way through. 

Had a shower and sat down and now my legs are feeling like they have been running.

Overall really happy with that run and the pacing was perhaps a little quicker than you suggested, more 5.15 to 5.30 with some faster blips but not bad i dont think.

Back to running Wednesday, i will pick up from where i left off with the hills and interval runs. No swimming at present as the back is not totally right, but it will be ok to run tomorrow. I have a history of back pulling problems, so i know what i can and cant do. 

By Monday next week i will be ok for the gym and swimming.

What will the LSR be this weekend?

old age for sure, it certainly affects me. I can only think about what i may have been able to do if i started this at 23 rather than 43.

Feet seem ok today, so i guess it has to be shoes right?

Back however is bloody sore lol.

Well i managed the 22km but my feet simply stopped me running, they were hurting so much.

I do still need new shoes so that may help when i can get some.

As you would expect with those SLOW speeds breathing was no issue and my legs felt fine despite being on them for 3 hours, but my ankles and feet were terrible.

Did you run? How far?

We have clear dry but very cold weather today. I am going to do LSR later and then try to go Monday next week to get one of missed runs in.
