Thanks for the location advice. If I do make it happen i'll look in that area.
Nice 14, Gul.
I've been to Barcelona twice on the first weekend in March some 5 years apart and on both occasions it was beach level weather.
Session over lunch of 10 x 1k off 1 min at hmp-10kp. As I ran it on a straight out and back path it was tricky to pace as the odd numbered reps were directly into a strong headwind and the evens with tailwind. I just sort of aimed for hr on each rep to be around low 170s regardless of pace, which seemed to work.
Sadly, I didn't end up with lunch yesterday! I always have an sis rego shake after a session or longer run and by the time I had that and did some work it was suddenly pushing 5pm.
Nice session, Leslie. I can't ever seem to get near 5k pace when I do reps.
Recovery 4 planned in a bit and then a strength class of some sort at the gym.
Nice MLR, Gul.
8m tempo planned over lunchtime. Conditions look perfect, however I am just not sure what shape the racecourse is in today. It was still under water Tuesday meaning that running complete loops was not possible. However I want to find a way as the prospect of 8m up and down the A38 tonight in forecasted rain is unappealing.
Racecourse was extremely slippery and up one side had about 150m of standing water that was at least ankle deep that I had to wade through 4 times.
Inevitably I took a fall on a tight bend just before 5m and that knocked my confidence a touch. Completed the 8m at 6.36mm average for a average hr of 162 which is pretty reasonable.
Solid week, Leslie. Yep this weather is just grim for running.
oo- It seems to me that the only way you'll get them cheaper is via some sort of discount. NUS cardholders get 10% off if you know a student but the big one seems to be that if you have the nike app and sign up to nike plus you get 25% off for the month of your birthday. I had it in January and my wife also did recently. That makes a big difference on a £240 spend.
Gul, yes I hate it when I've forgotten to take to the gym a fresh set of clothing.
