Have to start somewhere with the core work though Matt and sounds like you'll make huge progress with the little things adding in anyway!
Guessing the low 5m/m was average pace for the 3minutes? AV under 3:10 per KM with the tempo sounds promising though.. Sub 32 ......................
That 5KM does sound delicious though! There are clearly some good quick lads down here in the few local series around but generally the fields are not hugely deep.. The standard I want to achieve next year now I'm going to have to do some travelling.. All this injury has me thinking about focusing on shorter stuff and taking an easy / rebuilding winter... Who knows, I change my mind every day depending how I feel and you all know I like detail and going off on one!
Started a mini plan on next years races though - I know its a long way but the way this year is panning out I can't see much going on, and we are in October now
Picking my personal target races adding in probable team races such as nationals XCs then working my training backwards from those races..
Nutrition I really think is vital though.. Matt I remember you ate like me, snacked on cereal etc..
Today, 2 bowls of cornflakes + 2 bananas, some chocolate fingers and a Mr.Whippy ice cream. Worldclass nutrition. Oh and Mcdonalds pancakes and syrup for breakfast while I waited for the physio - YUM
It's pure lazyness though - Would be even worse to say I manage a kitchen that takes upto 25 grand a day wouldn't it!
Just tried the single leg balance. Pretty poor myself and also inconsistent
