Hello everyone! Massive congrats to AWC and BR and everyone else who raced over the weekend, really awesome stuff!
Thanks for everyone's words re the 10miles with 6*1km intervals last week. Loved them in the end!
However (and I'm generally being a bit backstage on this chat atm because I hate to be the voice of doom and gloom when everyone is doing so well!) I had a rest day on Saturday, felt fine on Sunday for my 18miler with 14 at MP .... and it all felt great, until mile 11 (7miles MP) when the knee started feeling dead. I slowed down for a mile then called it a day.
Its still feeling a bit knocked today so taking it as a warning sign of overtraining. Haven't had a knee problem in 3.5 years since my first HM and at that time it was overcome easily by introducing strength training. So I'm going to focus/increase the strength training and keep the miles easy this week until it feels better. I've got North London HM this weekend.
