Dachs, I can second what Deano said, the 3000 is a funny beast for us road types. I never get near what Mr McMillain has planned for me. But it seems that a 9:15 is about right? Still a cracking time pal.
SG, good to see those cheeky 5min HM/MP session are back, although not ramped up to the full 45 . Almost back to full intensity now then? You back on the M man plan? You're right about fast races up here, you don't have to wait too long at all!
Deano, you doing any of your road relays? I'm doing the north west and the northerns but our teams are stacked now the whippet kids are 18. Jesus, our team is full of sub 8:45 3K lads and big Stu is the 'weak link.' I'm in a 'seniors' team which goes head to head with a 'junior' (U20) team.
Matt, already said well done on FB but again, silly stuff! You getting tempted into a full marathon?!
For me, I'm getting along ok. Just really lack consistency. Hopefully when I get back to work It'll all settle down, I run best over winter too. Love the XC season.
Did a 16 x 1min (1minrec) session on Tuesday. Was covering 300m, and jogging 100M which worked out well. Last 300 was in 49 So obviously I'm still in ok shape. Just need to add in the long runs as they have been soaked up by hangovers this summer!
