Sounds like a great day Lorenzo!
DT that's a good point and I agree. My only reservation with the Vaporfly's is the 10mm heel drop. Ever since I got the On Cloud Xs which are a 6mm heel drop I realised I prefer racing in a lower drop shoe. Would still love to give the Vaporflys a trial though. Spent a while yesterday wondering how far I could run the On Cloudflash racing flats, will see how my feet feel after the marathon in the Xs first!
14 miles @ 7.58/142HR yesterday, legs were feeling really good. Average HR was probably a touch lower as my HR strap through a wobbly and recorded a max HR of 182 for a minute or so!

That looks better, thanks!
Unfortunately we wont Stevie as Knowle are in division 1 and my club division 2. You will be going to Pittville park in Cheltenham which is a good first time xc course as it isn't overly challenging. Just to warn you.....division 1 is ridiculous! We had a season there 2 years ago. One race I actually ran at about 6.22mm so sub 40 pace and finished in the bottom 20% of the field.
DT that's a shame, although the way its going I probably won't even be a member by then! Filled entry forms and paid the fee last Friday, still haven't heard anything! Very frustrating. I will look forward to coming last in the XC!
No problem OO, I plan to do some swimming on holiday to keep the exercise going. My technique is awful though!
Nice one with the list lads! It's great to see the cards on the table. Yeah, good luck to the weekend racers. I hope you all get what your training deserves. Quiet week here too, forgot my trainers today which was a first and I'm out tonight with a group of running buddies who are having a team meeting re their up and coming trip to Valencia, i.e. it's an excuse to eat, drink and chat about running. I hope to be able to get out before I go out tonight but I'll see how I feel after work.
Easy 4 this morning with strides.
This cutback week has left me feeling like i've stiffened right up. Hopefully I wont notice that Sunday morning but will feel the benefit in the second half with much less accumulated fatigue.
Best of luck Badbark and Poacher.
