Abbey Dash is a bit far for me as it's more than half an hour
You lot are definitely spoilt for choice
Alarm went off at 5:45am and i hit snooze 4 times before dragging my sorry backside out of bed and forcing it out the door. I had a plan to do 5 sets of 200(200jog) 200(400jg) 400(200jog) on the school running track that my club uses, but only if the school gates were open and i could actually get on the track. This is the first time i've even considered doing this after 18 months or so as a member of the club.
15min jog there and to my horror the gates were open so a few times round the track and some half hearted strides and i was on. Target was 40's for the 200's and 81's for the 400's.
After the first rep my hips and hams felt as tight as a drum and i was ready to jog home but having binned a similar session recently i gritted my teeth and dug in. Had no idea on paces until after the session but the early reps definitely felt relatively slow and hard work. At various times i thought of Big's 60 something second laps and muddy's 16:xx which almost brought a tear to my eye.
43.4 42.7 84.4
42.5 42.0 84.2
42.4 41.9 82.5
39.4 39.6 81.6
39.8 39.7 80.4
So after a shitty start it got better and felt much more fluid. I need to do a bit more of this sort of stuff i think and sticking a few more strides into easy runs.
X-POST , sorry to hear that, Big I too feel like i'm falling to pieces but in a not injured way. However, i do feel like i have an injury waiting to happen, really don't feel right at all but can't put my finger on it ....
