Evening all. A hectic few days here.
PP - excellent 10k. Congrats! What time are you thinking of targeting at Maidenhead?
SL - nice training. The hills+stuff is good fun, isn't it?
Jools - that's more than quick enough this far out. I wouldn't be able to get within 5s per mile of MP for a long tempo at the moment. I'd have thought you'll gain much more than 5s in 9 weeks.
DrD - Well done! I've finished 2nd at Pewsey two years in a row I believe, so you've trumped me! It's a great race with some cracking cakes after
All the best Dan!
Welcome KD. BarefootTed is a troll (for want of a more appropriate word to describe him) so don't waste your time responding.
LR. I train and race in flats (thought not the super light ones - all of mine tend to be around 190-230g in a size 8). Brooks t7 for racing, Brooks Green Silence, Asics Gel Hyperspeed and Brooks t7 for training, though I want to find another training pair as well for some variety. I prefer flexibility in my trainers, and, preferably a softer feel, so tend to avoid the likes of Adidas for both reasons.
Sounds like you're not far off pb shape Lev_. I think it's a good idea to stay on target with Berlin.
TR - what happened with your ribs?
Legs have been thrashed since coming back from holiday (combination of antibiotics whilst there and the resort being all concrete which kills my legs), so I've deliberately just stuck to easy running since getting back.
A 6+19 double today was promising, so I may try a hills+stuff session early am tomorrow. It'll be handy to get back to sessions as I need to lose some of the (too easily gained) holiday timber. Currently feeling fat and slow!
