It looks pretty messy in the North West, Alehouse with evacuations etc. There's a flood on part of my main running loop which is a right pain as it closes off every countryside short run I do. I went though it the other day but because the water was muddy I didn't see a big bloody trench and ended up waist deep in water, and that was on my warn up!!
Ticking over this week well before a cut back next week.. 3 X 2m on Tuesday at 10kp ish off 2 mins. Came in 6.05 and 6.04- 5.51 and 5.58- 5.53 and 6.00. With the walked recoveries I covered 10k in 39.57.
A very low effort 9m yesterday. Managed to avoid the rain just very windy.
Muss- No I get little enjoyment from the strength stuff, it's just a short process that needs to be done. I don't think significant amounts are necessary, 20 mins 3 times a week doing the right things should be enough.
Andrew, yes, I did think of that scene as I struggled to climb out of the ditch! Your desire to convert to forefoot troubles me some. I know a few people that have done it and they seem to be in a permanent cycle of lower leg and feet injuries. There was a brief mention of it on the 3.15 thread the otherday by MsE I believe, pointing out the pitfalls of it.
Alehouse, that looks like images of Worcester what with the racecourse and cricket ground on the banks of the Severn, they lend themselves to significant flooding.
Very light 5m yesterday. Off out over lunchtime for my usual Friday tempo.
