Excellent 5000m result, Stevie, you are progressing well.
Great 800m, OO. Incidentally the v55 winner of Saturdays 10k (and I think 4th pace) was 35.xx. He runs for the same club as Nicko and Jools. That is some going!!
SBD- fingers crossed you get a place somewhere. Is Bournemouth still open for entries?
Like Stevie I have not had much rest since Saturday with 7m sunday, 4m and spin Monday and 14m last night in the most torrential rain I can recall running in. I ran it at around my usual long race pace (8.09) and my hr was also on the low side at 136. The conditions probably helped in that respect.
4m recovery this morning completes july at 174. Basically averaging 10m per week less than mara training. Strange as it doesn't really feel like i'm doing that much and adding 10m per week wouldn't be that big a push.
Good monthly totals. I managed 321 for July and am on 2,043 year to date. Unchartered territory for me but the main thing is to avoid injury over the next few months.
Sounds like you need a bit more recovery time post RTTS G-D - hopefully back to normal soon.
Excellent track work from OO (congratulations on the PB and AC victory) and Stevie (that's a big improvement on the PB and I'm sure there's lots more to come).
Some good mid-week MLRs from DT, Stevie and PMJ. 13.1 miles for me tonight at an average 7:24 pace, with the HR averaging 140bpm. All feeling nice and easy with the pace picking up at the end for a 6:38 penultimate mile.
Have a confirmed place at Yorkshire Marathon in October. If I get offered a place at Abingdon I'll take this instead but otherwise Yorkshire it is. At least I now have a confirmed target race four weeks in to the marathon training!
