Easy Ric - we've only just got back to an even keel after your last dig at people Do you ever wonder if it's the criticism you dish to certain posters that makes them less keen to post as much?Like life you have to accept others have different motivations, aims and likes. You barely ever race for instance, which is fine, but the boat you're in is very different to some of the other guys, who have to risk the occasional break down to hit their times.But enough downer - I have a race report, and for the first race for a while it was a goodun
SG - Great racing there - you 35 yet? If so we need to do the Westminster Mile next year! Battersea seems to be the place to be at the moment. Welcome to the 'shouting at the wrong bloke club' - been there many times!!
Bus - bet that will be nice next week, I'd fancy a bit of that tbf. Good cycling Ric.
So down to the rugby club grass last night, 8 x 600 off 80. Stupidly hot when I left work, but by 6pm in Luton it wasn't too bad, quite breezy, which this time really helped. It actually wasn't as hot as I had feared. started with a 2.00 and got them down to 1.50 for the last one. Not too bad for the weather and the grass which was a tad long.
Keeping powder dry now until the MK 5,000M on Saturday.
SG - Oh yeah forgot you do the masters relays! The mile was great this year, being around 1 ish. Better than doing an open race at 9am isn't it. Its an early late May BH next year, sunday 24th and Monday 25th. Good as my kid is 10 on the 28th
Penallta is right next to Blackwood - do they play Manics tracks when the PR is on? 'Faster' would be a great choice...
Fairlands Valley (Stevenage) relays postponed tonight because of the heat! Good job I'm not doing it or I'd be RAGING
Bloody wusses. starts at 7.30 and it's only 3k too.
Just to be clear, my Sunday runs aren't anywhere near threshold.Ever. By even the loosest definition.May sometimes slip into "steady" but threshold by most people's definition is ten mile race pace or an hour.If im racing a hot ten in april at 5.57 then 7.15 being threshold either means i have an incredible range, have a superhuman ability to race way beyond threshold or have lost an outrageous amount of fitness in a few months.
Plus I would have an absolutely amazing invincibility to be able to knock out on average 57-60miles a week at threshold or quicker, for year on end 2015 forever made me over focus on breathing, hence sometimes mentioning being breathy.But make no mistake, the difference even when mentioning that, and actual threshold or efforts is huge.I've walked up a tiny hill on the way to wycombe ground at maybe 16min miling a few times and thought ooh breathy before😄😜I would put the breathing into the "niggle" locker. Over focusing on training runs at times, totally disappears when it matters.
