Matt, not a bad little blow out before Leeds. I'll have a look at one of those races in the run up to Christmas.
Interesting what people say about diet. All year I've struggled then took a fruit and veg diary for 2 weeks. Turns out I ate 3 portions of fruit in 2 weeks (not including tomatoes). So I bought a blender and now have a fruit smoothie with almond milk, oats, chia seeds and lin/pumpkin seeds every morning, usually about 3 portions worth. The difference is incredible.
Lots of fixtures yesterday but resisted the temptation after 2 good sessions of:
Tues 8 mins, 3 x 4 minss, 8min, 4 x 30s. All at 10K target pace, the 4s a bit quick and the 30s were strides.
Thurs - 6mins, 4 x 1min, 4min, 4 x 1min, 2mins, 4 x 30s. Started at 10K pace then the rest was at mile to 5K pace.
Easy 10 instead of 15 today as the ease down begins for Leeds.
