Reg- I've always found tempo stuff the hardest of the 3 main runs. Keeping a medium hard pace going consecutively for a while has to be harder than just smashing reps, or easy running. Unfortunately I used to find it's that necessary evil, as it's the closest of the 3 to race day!
CC, I think those are the fastest 500s this thread has seen in 6 years. so well done.
Having said that, i'm not sure I've read anyone do 500s before, what's that all about
Bus, decent sounding standard there today then, especially in the heat? I think when I got that 1st, that 2nd was slower than you were today!
I was going to do the Marlow 5k last Tuesday. But when the temp was set to be scandalously hot, I had to play the sense card, and remember the specialist's advice not to do anything "very strenuous". I think we'd all agree that racing in that heat, with my doubts would be very foolish.
Today I was excited to be doing a day trip to Bruges. Only been to 2 countries outside the UK, so was looking to add a third, as a possible leg up to a post running career
Absolutely gutted that the coach broke down at Folkestone! Meaning we basically had a 12 hour day, and only achieved getting to Folkestone and back! Knackered!
