LS21.. I might give Snake Lane a miss too, particularly as 45mph gusts are forecast into the mix! I do have a place for VLM so might see you outside Yorkshire in April.
Al P.. you get the award for walking under a ladder. Sorry to hear you're struggling, hope you heal up soonest.
Nice set of hills TMoth.
Toro.. good set of 200's there, nice weekly total on the cards too.
Pi Man.. excellent beer, wine & chocolate consumption. Just the letter 'e' to add onto your forum christian name and you have the full set.
Charlie.. I once did 24.5m on a Sunday, 6m on the Monday, 5+7m on Tuesday & tried a 15m commute home on the Wednesday. I 'bonked' 5m from home & dropped from 7:30 pace to 9:40 in the space of a couple of miles. I clearly hadn't let myself recover from the big run which was a lesson learned. I don't think much science is required, cumulative fatigue without sufficient recovery says it all really. Hope the rest does the trick for you.
I had a short lived niggle last Friday, bottom of shin where it meets the foot - I could feel it walking around. Ice packs, 36 hours rest, felt ok Saturday night so risked a club XC (soft, soggy surface) on the Sunday. No problems and it hasn't come back since so a sigh of relief.
12.5m today inc 8 x 1k @ 6:22 pace (500m recoveries) in the middle.
