Just over 4m at 6:54 pace feing very good to end a good week. HR 142 which is back in the ranges I used to operate at although over longer still shoes some improvement although that's not a worry right now. Time on feet and keeping leg healthy is

20 miles in total and generally foot feeling good. Rest yesterday and Sunday when was meant to run was a good decision and body felt ok for it

Left calf is tight but trying to manage that out and massage Monday.

Just under 50 miles cycling for the week and will aim to finish running on around 20 but only cycled 4 days

Cycled over 100miles more in the last 12 weeks combined than the rest of the year  

Drawing the year in now, I'm sat on 1532 running miles (not inc this week)

1260 cycling miles (including the 2.5m x 2 commute to work when I do it)

Finally, 8 days off now! 

Today didn't drag and I wasn't in holiday mode at all really. Focused and got "my" work completed etc before 3:30PM so no worrying over the break.. 

Food safety audit yesterday in my kitchen and scored 96% so pretty pleased with that (That's the last 3 over 95% so I deserved a bonus right boss)  Our business took £5 million last year so it's an extensive op to run but results like that are rewarding.

Foot felt better today, and even better on the run. Strange. Seems a little settled and a rest day tomorrow should help. Will RICE over weekend, no shin problems and still peroneal isn't nagging.

So activities today - 5 mile worth of windy but easy cycle commute then home followed by 4.02m run @6:54 pace (no HRM). Massive tail wind last 2 miles along Weston shore as ended up at a mates house as we had organised to play badminton! Not the wisest choice but there were 4 of us and I played one game and took it easy no over stretching feeling ok

Dropped off home and 45 minutes on the turbo watching rocky 1 for motivation feeling pretty good although bloody HRM didn't pick up signal this time! Felt controlled and in my usual spinning gear for high cadence so a good bagged effort 

"spinning is winning" 

Off now for Christmas and will just run Saturday and Sunday now no cycling till Monday..

Plan next week is lot's of rest, stretching and to run 5 or 6/7 days 30-35 minutes, slightly slowing on any longer runs but mainly aiming to go at least 4.5 miles no more than 5... 

1 hour massage booked Monday just to start regular maintenance where am running more often..

Currently 43 miles for December running

X - post Dean.. I was thinking it just maybe too much to ask for so much speed this summer but will want to give it a shot before I get another year gone..

Old coach really did want me to hit the track this year where he thinks my strength is but obviously from being 14/15 to 26 now things change and I've not been under his watch really! 

I was also thinking which was harder (even though you've ran sub 2.. And think sub 4 is much much harder)

Dachs - Yeah I stalked his PO10 just now. Dipping inside 2:00 and close to 4.. 

I wont lay out any specific times as such as it'll mainly depend how I fair with the injury but I think by February I should be starting to start sessions combined with a full week. Only aim as I said before is maintaining consistent mileage and keeping it in check. All this also depends if my career choice goes through in January which could be interesting! 

Nice tempo with miles either end. 

45 minute steady state turbo ride just now. Sweated more than I've done in a sauna but feels weird not having much impact from the run earlier and legs feel normal

Couldn't do the beer mile IC - Maybe as a charity event but I'm useless with alcohol 

8 days off work now and on the IOW on and off some hope to rest up well inbetween some running aiming 5/7 runs 35 minutes each

I think I could run a quick 400 given a bit of time. I'm sure I could run 55ish back in the day -

I think my main aim will be some shorter track races this summer - 1500/3000 keepin lid on mileage and aiming at some of Deans blistering paces so will be interesting to see what sort of speed I have

Sub 4 1500m this year? Is that even realistic? Thoughts?

4 mile run today brings up 16 so far this week with aim to finish on 20.. All slow and pain still there so not 100% but better

I think Mo and the brownlees would have been pretty "quick" over 100m?

If Mo can close a lap in 52 seconds after a 5km surely that's a 12/13s 100m?

How was this measured?? Is that an average of 60+ minute rides in the year


Do you cycle with a power meter?

Jonny.. Must be really hard to swallow in that situation but must be proud of your own achievements.. 

I saw he got called up for the euro team if I'm not mistaken! No shame! 


IC - So similar to runners who have favoured / consistent or "better" distances that their body is just the best at performing? 

In theory I could be best at 800m but training for 10KM .. Will never know and probably never have the chance to find out where as another young runner or cyclist may get in a lab and tested to hell to find what biologically is best

PMJ I think cycling nowadays is measured in watts per kilo and then basically how long you can sustain that for..


The higher it is the better (average) for efforts up mountains or TT's pros could say sustain 7 watts per kilo for 30 minute..

So you're right - I think the equation doesn't mean people who are lighter are favoured or heavy people with high wattage output capabilities can claim big things with big watts... It's watts per kilo / time or distance

Where as there's no equation for me running x pace at x weight vs someone else running the same pace but weighing x KGs less... 

Would be cool to see something that you can compare runners that way.
