Finally found a bit of time to have a scan back.
TJB - best of luck at Boston!
PP - looking good; nice reps.
TR - nice one with the mentee, and fwiw, I agree with your assertion of what's needed at that level (strength, consistency, etc). CRaB's post did make me laugh though
KD - 10m @ MP 8 days out (I assume you're doing London?)? Sorry, but that's asking for trouble. If I were tapering I'd be doing 6m @ MP today and then 2-3m @ MP next Thursday. You really don't need any more than that.
Jools - you're a great example of how to calmly and perfectly execute a training cycle and have been for quite a while now, particularly from when you got your first sub-3. It's like it gave you a new lease of confidence in your running.
selbs - yeah, I know an hour a day average is not bad, but I guess it's because it's less than I would usually do, and because of all the decorating, etc, it has been squashed into 4 or 5 days. Once I've got all the diy finished, the house on the market, and I'm back in full running I'll end up doing way more but with it all feeling less rushed, etc. I'm sure the niggles will come to nothing.
Good to see loads generally ready to go, so best wishes to those racing this weekend (anybody at Manchester?), and fingers crossed those niggles come to nothing.
I've now run for 3 consecutive days. This morning was an increase to a mighty 3m run/30mins gym/1.25m run. All still seems good bar my legs wondering wtf is going on!!! It's a little hard to believe that that makes 11m since Wednesday and I've got DOMS, but I guess that's what a month off does to you!!!
