We seem to be in a similar covid situation to you, Jools. Limped through ti half term last weekend, but so many reports of more positive cases this week, including quite a few double vaccinated staff 😱.
Great racing, SC. And impressively tidy reps so soon after.
Struggling a little since Sunday’s tough race. Family sickness, lack of sleep (resulting in poor eating then rollercoaster blood sugar levels) and ridiculous stiffness - living up to my name! Sorry, moan over.
A mere mile and a half on Monday, chasing a bike. A pleasant yet slow 12M by the canal on Tuesday. An horrendous 6M pushing the buggy into a strong headwind yesterday and 4M at an incredibly slow 10m/m early this morn.
Picked things up a bit with a bonus treadmill whilst my daughter was at gymnastics early this evening. Getting on the conveyor belt is a rarity for me, but thought it would be a good option to get some speed into my legs without having to give it any real mental fortitude. 5 x 1k, 400 jog. Went from 16.1 kph (6m/m) through to just over 17 on the last one. Who knows how accurate, but nice to do a first session since London.
Wore the orange London t shirt for the first time. Think I am in the minority, but I like it
Phil - the Science in Sport podcast with Ross Tucker is excellent regarding DSD in sport.
Good effort, Jools. Not least a nine min mile with a 💩!
You’re putting together some sessions, Bus 👍
Away in chester over the weekend and unfortunately didn’t manage to squeeze in a run. So just 43M for the week, but not to worry.
Met a friend (who is on a massive upward trajectory) for the Three Hills of Cleeve this morning. Having him there seemed to really help, and despite him speeding off on the final climb, I ran my second fastest in fifteen attempts on the segment.
I was quicker than him downhill, although not through any real attempt to push it. An experience thing, I guess. And good conditioning for the quads in advance of the Broadway marathon.
All in 11.8M (with some extra flat added at the end), 1600ft for 7:50 pace.
