Good luck to the London gang for tomorrow. The hay is in the barn so they say, just go out and do what you've trained for.
Did a 3 and 7 yesterday. Lots of stretching and rolling to ease the arse area up a bit. Ended spending 40min in total! Didn't even open my eyes today until 11:30 so I must have needed a good kip.
An easy 9 today then easing off slightly for the Spring 5. 4 miles tomorrow, Monday off and a sports massage, easy 3 Tuesday. Race Wed. Just need the rattling on my chest to ease a bit more.
Heart rate stuff is quite interesting, my resting rate is 46ish, my max being 194. Not sure how helpful it is for racing or hard training as you have to push your limits so you won't be staying in the 'zone.' It is good to see how 'easy' easy runs are, sometimes I run a 7:00min/mile run and think it was easy then realise my HR was a bit too high.
