Lev/PP - awesome runs at Berlin, enjoyed reading that report. On the orange theme I've bought some Adios Boosts in orange as I've been so impressed with the Boston boosts, £71 locally with my discount, decent.
Dave Sawyer/Toro - cracking pbs both of you too
Selbs - solid long run back there even if it felt tough
Dachs - 14m with those 1k efforts sounds grim, lol
bains - nice track session
Keith D - tough luck at Tonbridge. I live in Newcastle so do fell races in Northumberland and Lake District but looking to do a few in N Yorks.
TT - 22 @ 6.30. It's reading stuff like this on here that makes me feel exceptionally slow, lol
SL - good luck with your ultrsound
I did Redcar half on Sunday and finished in 1.21.59. I'd worked out that despite getting back to normal running last few weeks, since the end of July so roughly last 7 weeks my average road mileage (supplemented by gym work) has been limited to about 20-25 miles a week which is nowt with one speed session in that time in the form of a park run and 1 run of 10m or more.Therefore I knew it was never going to be anything spectacular, haha I'm conditioned to run up and over Lakeland fells at the moment but not hold a sustained pace on the road.
Anyway I quite enjoyed it, solid workout and ideal for fitness. Felt very average from 4-7m but picked things up at 8 and pushed it fairly hard from 10 to finish. Flat and conditions good but dull as dishwater route, out and backs along coast which I found hard to concentrate on. Legs actually felt pretty good and recovered v quickly so was able to do hill session with club last night albeit with a slower group. Maybe I didn't try hard enough! If I can hit about 1.20 shape by turn of the year with xc/park runs/general faster sessions I'm going to aim at a 1.17 at Wilmslow in March.
Fitness is coming on well though, just one more hard bike hills session, a park run and a trott round a local fell race route this weekend to set me up for langdale horseshoe fell race in lakes Next weekend which is a tough race but awesome route.
