Glad you enjoyed your Hols Cal, which theme parks did you get to ? I love coasters as well.
Good luck with the Ultra Steve.
Keeping that line going upwards is the tricky bit Ian , great progress.
Worth waiting for the report Mamafox, had me laughing. I can almost picture Mr Fox being a bit upset about nothing to fix along the way. I've had so many cars like that, and had to take a few tools/spares with me. I'm curious about the Lime green girl as well. Drugs test sounds stressful, I'd hate all the hounding straight after a marathon.
Have you tried Sloe gin ? ,I don't like gin but SLoe Gin is lovely. I quite like my rum at the moment, goes nicely with a decent Ginger beer. I'll drink most things though .
Did an interval session last night, only other time I've tried intervals was just doing a flat out 1 min with a 1 min rest and repeat. So i thought i'd actually program the watch for the session, which was a 1 mile warm up, 8 x 0.25 mile (400meters ish) with 2 min recoveries and then a cool down.
Didn't really know what pace, so decided on a bit quicker than my 5k, so roughly 6:30 = 1:45 per split. I wasn't looking forward to the session at all, as I really struggle with a fast pace on my own.
Nice gentle warm up and then onto the first one, quick glance at the watch to check pace and surprised to see low 6's so I eased back a touch to keep it around 6:30 which felt good. 1 down, not too bad. 2 min recovery went so fast and off again. First 2 or 3 were ok and was actually enjoying it, next couple were tougher and then easier again. Felt I could have done more at the end but stopped at 8 and than a mile easy back to the car feeling quite pleased with myself.
Splits 1:37, 1:37, 1:39, 1:35, 1:36, 1:37, 1:36, 1:36 . Around 6:25-6:30 pace.

I need to do some more reading on intervals, as I don't really know what I'm doing!. Confusing around pace / rest / how many / distance etc. It's a start though.
