Results are in from today's 10K. Not a great one,

It was humid and very windy so expectations were low, also not feeling great and considered binning it off this morning after turning my alarm off and immediately falling asleep.

Got to 5K in 18:05, having battled into the wind for 2K, I knew if I had to run into it again I'd pop and K 6 was straight into a nasty headwind circa 14-16MPH. It is a Cheshire GP race and I was where I should be I  terms of local competitors.

Time of 37:15 was made worse by the course being 10.10K, both my club mates had 6.25 and 6.31 miles on their Garmins - apparently this was an issue last year.

As you can see no PBs or even SBs at the club runner end and everybody is a minute down on PBs. So not only me who had a mare! Not too fussed as it was never an A race and it's part of the process.

Me and Dean have earned our F-OFF this week, good and proper.

Not a good idea week after week but I feel I've really pushed on. I'll do a 40min 10K and snap both hamstrings on Sunday now!!

Ric backing up my gung ho training! Nice one mate. Can you now explain why I did 4 miles then 8 x 200 tonight?!

I agreed to do the 400s Monday, thinking Tuesday would be a tempo, but it ended up quick. Didn't want to leave my mate doing the 400s on his own so did them anyway.

4.5 miles easy run tonight then joined the group for 8 x 200, kept them casual at 37/38 pace. Then another 2 miles to warm down. I don't do tapering anymore, non of my PB's this year have come off anything more than a 2 days ease down.

Great race Dean, solo track efforts are not enjoyable.

Nice LSR Bus, especially since your feed station was shut down!

8 x 400 (2 mins rec) tonight, not easy the day after those mile reps.

7 x 74s, ended with a 72s. Horribly windy again.

Great session Dachs, that's an eye watering session. Over distance at 5K pace!! Crazy.

Mile reps for me too SG. 4 x 1 mile (90 seconds)

5:46, 5:45, 5:39, 5:30.

Too many good sessions going on here! Dean and SG standing out.

I've a 10K Sunday - time to level up that PB!

At the same meeting as Dean, I managed to run 9:59 for the 3K. Felt awful from 350m so to dig out a sub 10 was a good result. Slow start as I got stuck in a massive pack of girls completely unaware of pacing. 1500 next meeting!

Having a hectic week so a flying visit!

Hope everyone is healthy and getting some good runs in!

9.5 miles  - sober.

Nice session in the wind Dean, and an interesting one that will hopefully help you with those mid race surges of pace that can sometimes ruin that middle third.

Nice session SG, that sounds like more of a headache on the track, too much number crunching to ensure pace. Good outcome never the less.

RE alcohol, I find when I drink I go mad and get so drunk I'm desperately ill for 2 days. It then takes me a week to feel ok (running wise) again. I just can't manage it now, try to keep up with the lads and end up a jibber mess. I'm worried about going on a stag to the Leeds festival a month before a proposed marathon! I try to stay off the stuff as much as possible but being quite social it's tricky!

Track Tuesday:

20 x 200 off 30 seconds. All in 36 apart from a couple of early 35s. Good stuff. Was nice after feeling half dead on my LSR on Sunday, but a 9.5 last night eased things up a bit. Track race planned a week today! There will be an end of school year Watford road trip in July too!

Great 10K Simon, I've always wanted to do the London 10,000. A strong first 5K, not sure what caused the slow down at the end? How long is your long run? For me, I tend to flag if I've neglected long runs.

SG - good 5K and nice to be back below 17min with the dodgy ribs too. We are spoilt for quick 5K races up here, there's literally one every month.

Track Thursday (after a hangover Wednesday in bed) 1 x 1K (2mins), 4 x 400 (90s), 4 x 200 (30s).

1K (3:15), 400s (74, 75, 75, 73), 200s (34, 34, 33, 31). The K felt God awful but my legs livened up for the 200s.

Thanks Dean and welcome back!

Bit slow here this week? Good session on the grass by Simon, faster than my track reps.

My week has gone:

M - 7.5 easy

T - 6 x 600m

W - 9.5 miles easy (but in 2 runs as my mate's calf went and I had to drive him home then continue later.)

T - 5.25 miles with 3 @ tempo.

F - 3 miles recovery

S - Cheshire champs 1500, then a 2 mile tempo.

S - 15 miles easy.

52 for the week

Ran a 1500 yesterday and got myself a senior gold by beating one other guy. I was 20 seconds behind and 20 seconds in front of other runners so totally stranded in a small field. Ran 4:41 which I wasn't too happy with. But on my own and I know I took the 3rd lap far too easy. Then did a 2 mile tempo in the park for good measure. Very enjoyable distance to race though, I'd love to have another go in a bigger/graded race.
