Matsmum, well done on your tempo run, some good mile splits there. Yes, I also felt like I could have run for ever. Pity every run isn't like that.
Last night's sprint session was held on grass, instead of the planned gravel trail, as so many club members turned up. I believe it is what's called the London Marathon Factor. We ran into a very strong wind, which made things much tougher. We ran four sets of 30, 45 and 60 seconds with 15 seconds longer run backs. There was an untimed recovery period between sets. Total mileage 6.5. I made a conscious effort to raise my knees and kick backs higher, which I think helped me to run faster. I certainly ran further on each sprint of the last set, but that could be because I take longer "getting into my stride."
Off for an easy road run soon in bright sunshine.
Exhausted, how did you get on on Sunday? We are keen to see your race report.
