ps 33min 10k! The prospect of that just made everything ache more

Not sure if I can pretend I'm falling apart Bus, this is week 3 of 70miling after all

I do realise I'm very much wary of the "pride before a fall" style of hyping myself up though, hence usually keeping races under wraps, and never predicting big times.

Sometimes I sense that irritates people more than If I cruised on and said, "I'm gonna do a 33min 10k next time out".

Simon, he did some ferocious times, but I guess it's a thankless task smashing track races into your 40s, and if you're excellent at another sport, that's probably a better bet!

Was able to get a couple of free Osteo appointments, so thought I'd check out what might be making the hip bones tight with a couple of referred feels. Seems to be a case that while the hamstring stretches have been decent, I need to be counter balancing with quad stretches and other lunges.

Sounds good advice to me, so will add it in.

5 years anniversary on 30th March Simon. Although i did have a few months end of last year running amok, when I was tighter than a Tory MP.

Same fella. He's focusing on tennis now.

chaps who have mailed me...just in case you weren't aware, the PM facility on RW is a bit rubbish, in that it only gives you a numerical notification the first time you get a mail from someone...

for ensuing messages, you don't get you have to check back in your messages on the off chance...

(ps, I've mailed!)

don't encourage him Matt, he's trying to lose the pains not get more 

12 done and dusted, 7.03 pace. Pace wise comfy, few little raggedy feels of bits and pieces. Osteo tomorrow. Hopefully some cracks to this and that will reset whatever is out of sync!

Nothing until Friday now, which is an interesting mix of fast 400s and MP.

was that an effort run Bus? Or pretending to be an easy run!?

Appreciate the clarification Phil 

I'm under a little pressure on this one, as I encouraged my work pal to do this race, so need to find him a place.

Come the last week there will be plenty of places...but always good to get it sorted!

Good to hear you're back and going very well Nikki, wow, smashing the long runs out! Health problems look well and truly in the past then?

5x1mile at HMP off 30secs just done.

I think when i first saw that I glazed over the miniscule recovery, but my word that goes quickly.

Devised a loop, including my gorgeous pavement stretch I do 200s-800s on, swinging back round, and basically the reverse.

Aim was the 5.45-5.50 HM zone, but was aware that my last half came out 5.56, but I know that was a comeback half.

First rep 5.48, second one 5.50.

My brain was screaming at that point "you are NOT doing 3 more of these mind numbing laps".

Therefore, to lift the monotony, I did rep 3 towards work, and rep 4 back. Spiced it up mentally, but probably caused the slight slow down, 5.51, 5.53 (slight down, slight up), before doing the final rep round the loop again for a 5.48

Sometimes it's easy to tail off in those last seconds right before the rep is recorded...have to stop doing that.

Average just slipping under the bottom end of the zone, 5:49:80! 

Less pleased to find the great skin top I'd tied round a railing out of sight had been nicked by the time I got back! It's funny, i've tied it on a different railing in full sight of the road before, yet this was literally hidden, and this is the one that got nicked!

Is my fault for wearing 2 of my best tops in 1 go..should have used one of those many, many free from races hi vis short sleeved shirts! They aren't a problem to be nicked.

Oh well, was an old top, but happy to get the session in as planned. This could be a colossal mileage week, bigger than the last two of 70.5&69.5
