Stewart - Maybe try  running your HM session progressively starting at current MP and gradually increase pace to target MP for the last couple of miles and see how you get on. If you feel that its too fast you can always throttle back.

Lucky Sod Westy.

5 miles went without incident - it seems the front and back movement is ok, side to side is a totally different matter.

Rejigging my plans tonite to get the base built.

Nice running by all I see. Not much here, managed to damage my shoulder and I think its a rotator cuff problem as it feels the same as the other side when that went.

Will go and see if it hampers my running later...Hopefully not too much and hopefully it will ease up a little anyway. I am struggling to get a decent amount of miles in recently.

I used to have the gamma but left the batteries in since last year so its buggered. Have now bought the viper(only due to the gamma not being in stock at the time). It depends if you want the torch to help see or help be seen. Round these parts I am always on lanes without pavements so prefer the gamma out of the two due to the light on the back. The Viper is lighter, brighter, smaller and easier to put on and off whilst running though and is better if running on pavements or off road but doesn't have the back light.

capri shorts over under armour pants. Have a ronhill jacket that stops you from freezing if its bucketing down but a normal asics reflective top otherwise with one or two layers underneath. I can tend to regulate my temperature with a beany hat and gloves - never normally finish a run with both on though,

6 tonite, legs behaving nicely. MSE - can you share your thoughts and experiences on Achilles recovery? (I don't mind if its through a PM to save clogging the thread)

Base build LFR. Dropping a week or two during the plan is something to deal with at the time (if it happens). I am yet to complete the full 18 weeks in all campaigns - more like 14 for me.

I am going to base build till post Christmas and jump into the plan after all the nonsense. Not done too much running over the last week, niggly Achilles and hammered after the rugga on Saturday have put paid to that.
