Phew...not another fast old bastard! The 3000 would be fine, not that elitist those events.I wear spikes 3000m and below, usually racing flats for 5,000 and upwards. You get a few wearing clown shoes for 5,000, but not expecting many wearing them in the 3000's - none in the faster races anyway.P.S. Don't ever call a 3000m a 3k near an old official. I did once - and he said 'That's a 3,000m to you son!' Love all that stuff
Bus I am so sorry
to hear about what your wife (and you all) are going through. My thoughts are
with you. I’d agree with having had some success with NHS physios. It takes so
long to get the appointment that you are half way to recovery anyway, but they
have gone big on the rehab exercises which are key in my book.
That session is very close to your peak, SG, especially when you consider all
the differences you mention. Good speed.
Nice tempo sandwich, SC.
You seem to be making some running progress, Joe. And still an animal on the bike I notice.
Hope it is all going well in your new abode. Great to have new routes
That’s a late night of work, Reg, impressed you are back into a race following it. Good to see
your longer runs continuing.
Rounded off last week with a sort of double Sunday: a return
to junior parkrun as a starter. I genuinely couldn’t have been happier to see
all the kids out there running with smiles on their faces. And I had to put in
considerably more effort to keep up with my daughter than 14 months ago! And
then for the main course was 13 buggy miles. 62M for the week, with one quality
session – continues the recent consistency.
So, into race week – first time I have thought of that in a
long time! Recovery five on the trails yesterday, and a sharpener of a session
this morn: 7M total, with 2M at what was probably just above marathon effort
(6:45s), then 2 x 2 minutes at half marathon effort (6:30, 6:20).
Will keep the rest of the week very light. Have been doing
some gentle visualisation to think about different moments in the race, and am
also on day six of a Headspace course (ten minutes a day) about sports
motivation. Easy going so far, but surprisingly good.
