Ferg, I think Tommo just implied that you're small and yellow and hiding in a bush Glad to hear things are going well, keep up the softly softly approach... I guess I could try the dreadmill, but weirdly I find running fast on them really, really hard for some reason? Probably the fact it's hot in the gym.
Scott, that kind of time is unfathomable to me, so eek at your disappointment - but you're very, very close (I know track is a different animal, but it's still barely more than a second on each lap so you'll knock those couple of seconds off no problem.)
Millsy - cross training... And productive too. Not sure I can say the same about golf, but I guess at least it's some gentle wandering around which can only be good for stretching off.
NE, that sounds like a pretty awesome time. Random distance, mind! How did it go for you?
Tommo, sounds like your 5K training's on the right path. Bet you smash the race. I'm with you on the LT v intervals thing, even though I have no intention of working on shorter distances. I think I don't mind the intervals in P&D because they're 5K pace, and my 5K pace is...not very fast
Contrary to my plan for half training, I am off on an adventure today. Mr Mad and I are planning on running (well, sort of running - ultra style) a local circular trail at some point this summer (then staying in a posh hotel!). It's 36 miles, I'm pretty confident I can do that without too much trouble really, but I did want to just do a couple of long time-on-feet runs in advance to get used to being out for a long time, so I've packed my sarnies and map and waterproofs, and off into the hills for somewhere between 25 and 30 miles. Will do it extra slowly, walking all the ups and probably stopping for a picnic at some point
