DT, interesting you mention many have not taken to the 2000-2 - it is softer for sure as they have increased the gel in the heel & forefoot areas - so a slight weight increase I believe, but from a structural/stability perspective it is really not that dissimilar from the original 2000.
What was the problem with the original 2000s? The heel counters are especially prone to wearing away on the inside.
6*5 mins sounds pretty brutal and not a session to approach lightly!
cb - excellent to get so close to 19:xx, you will be there before you know it! Well deserved after good training recently, hope you can keep the momentum up.
alehouse - yep shall be there from Sunday 27th until the Wednesday or Thursday I believe. Marathon Sunday, athletics Monday evening and Tuesday morning (I think), Sevens and some Badminton as well (not sure on what days off the top of my head).
TR, sounds like you dodged a bullet re: PF there. Nasty stuff. What did you do to fix it?
Great 5k, actually not too surprised you have managed to get a good time at this point after Edinburgh, I imagine the race & prior training has well & truly sunk in and it's a great baseline to build off.
velloo - nice going up at Skye and from your OH! Sounds like he was racing quite close to one of my friends who runs for Bellahouston (Stuart MacDougall - he's tall, loud, Glaswegian and very difficult to miss, he spoke at the prize giving afterwards too). He said it was a surprisingly quick race despite the terrain.
Mr V, looks like a good session with some decent pace. What's the club philosophy like? High/low mileage/intensity?
For me I am doing well. A 16.1M long run on Sunday brought me to 75 miles for the week which is my highest ever total. Tuesday did a trail progression run with the club and gave it a bit of gas for the final half mile to stretch the legs out - in fairness it was reasonably downhill but ran 4:53/m for the final 0.4M.
I am actually feeling better and more energetic at 70+mpw than I was at 50. Sure I am feeling tired on occasion but I am coping with the volume and intensity very well.
