Happy 40 Jools!
Solid racing, Leslie.
G-dawg, take it easy at the event!
Tough nights racing last night. Was hoping for sub 39 but came in 39.22 on garmin. It was very humid and the course (new course) had 365ft of elevation. I was going well, going through 5k in about 19.20, however a lengthy climb at 6k took the wind out of me and I overheated quite a bit, then another sharp climb bang on 8k finished me off. It was a tough course as you were never running flat for long enough to get into a rhythm. Just as you settled there would be an up or downhill.
Magor in 3 weeks with its 25ft of elevation gain should be a completely different proposition.
great session, Stevie. That is certainly a tough one having done it myself a few weeks back.
Top bombing again, OO. I don't think I'll ever get to the sub 18 level. The thought of 5.45mm makes me feel a bit sick. I think I have more chance of a sub 2.55 mara.
Esay 4 at recovery yesterday and bodypump in evening. Just some circuits tonight then some running over the weekend.
Gul appears to have gone awol this week. Hopefully that doesn't mean he is on the bench?
Good to see you back out running Jools - hopefully over the ankle injury sooner than you know it.
Nice mile building Leslie.
Well done on starting and finishing Race to The Stones G-D. Excellent recovery from the injuries that threatened to derail you. Glad you enjoyed the day (you haven't managed to the sell the ultra to me yet!) and hopefully no post-race injuries?
Hoe your ultra training is going well Speedy. When is your race and what does the training schedule comprise of at the moment?
Excellent work on the Sub 18 5K's OO - three so close is just plain greedy!
Good tempo session Stevie - it's unusual for the Garmin to record a lower than actual HR, so you must just be fitter. Still no Autumn marathon booked but Abingdon (waiting list), Yorkshire (they seem to have a GFA option) or New York are all possible. Otherwise, it may just have to be Valencia in December.
A good time on the 10K DT given the course and the conditions.
A good week for me with a 10K tempo on Tuesday in 39:21 and a progressive 18K on Friday ending with the final 2K at 4:00 m/km pace for a HR of 165 which equates to marathon pace effort.
Today was an 18 mile long run, setting off at 6:30pm. Temperatures had cooled but the evening sun was welcome. A bit of a struggle mentally but surprised myself by coming in 30 secs quicker than last week, so 7:42 pace for the day
Gradually building the miles, so 71 mile for the week.
