Madbee - congratulations on the pb
Charlie - You should n't be too disconcerted by worcester. I know a few runners who all finished a minute or two slower than I would expect.
DT - Ryton is not flat: It undulated and weaves gently round the lakes. No doubt you could find a quicker course, but it is pb-able and teh twists and turns make it a fun course to race as you can pretend you're a tactical genius when planning your overtaking moves.
I did 6 tempo on saturday, in the wind on my usual undulating circuit. Averaged 6:35 for the six miles. Then Twelve miles yesterday, which felt like hard work. I got a new watch for my birthday (43 when you next update the TTT) which tells you whether you've recovered from the previous session. usually it say Good, but on Sunday it said Fair, which was ..um fair.
It also does cadence and vertical oscillation and all that stuff, which, as I'm sure you'll all agree is fascinating stuff.
