Knocking that much time off a wr for such a relatively short distance is amazing, almost too amazing!! That's nearly 10s per mile which at that level is ridiculous.
Decent going after the 20, Nicko.
Standard Monday 4m recovery and spin for me last night. Mini session later today as I am tapering again.
A tidy set of reps Leslie. And an excellent time at the 10 mile race on Sunday given the weather.
Careful you don't injure those running muscles OO!
That's a lot of miles for Monday & Tuesday Jools. Good observation on the 5K WR time - although it did look like there were a lot of VP's on show.
Good easy miles Gul. No need for any specific HM training - P&D will deliver.
Good recovery miles after the Sunday 17 DT.
Sounds like hard work on the club progressive nicko.
Hope the knee is OK Gerard.
Tempo Tuesday was back with a vengeance tonight. I'm still finding these sessions a bit of a mental battle but so far I've been coming out on top. I thought I would struggle to match last week's session but managed to squeeze a few more seconds off the 10K tempo section, so 38:56 and, even better, the average HR was only 165 compared to last week's 168. So all heading in the right direction and, with the w/u and w/u, 11 miles in total.
That's shifting some on those intervals OO.
That's a good pace on those MP miles Gul - a difficult session to do on your own.
Good news on the NYC place DT. Will be interesting to see the stats on how many places were offered if they ever make them available.
That's still a good session G-D - if the weather's not playing ball there's not much you can do.
A bit windy here this afternoon and still quite a bit of water around. 15 miles completed on the country roads. A bit sluggish to start with but then picked up the pace in the second half, so 5 miles splits of 7:58, 7:43 and 7:04, average of 7:35.
Wokingham HM on Sunday but this will be an untapered MP run. A bit less wind than currently forecast would be nice but I may just try and sit at the back of the 1:25 pace group.
Gul, it also baffles me how you can do what you do so early in the morning, but it works so good stuff!!!
One day one of us will report a non windy run, Leslie!!
Nice 15, SBD. the wind forecast for Loughborough is dropping nicely, under 15mph now!
Solid session, oo.
Easy 7m last night, followed by a pretty decent effort at a spin class.
Weighed in this morning at 10st 11, started out at 11,6 early January. My trousers are falling down at work and my belt is already on the last buckle!!
Easing into taper today with an easy 5m and bodypump.
Leslie, decent tempo, hope nightshift went well!
Nicko, great stuff on the pb, particularly given the conditions.
Gul, nice steady 15 there.
Just ticking over now ready for Sunday. Weather forecast is currently looking OK. Not perfect, but not terrible. It'll do!
Looking back on my fitbit app from my scales, I am exactly 5lb lighter today than I was the day before my recent 10k pb mid January. That ought to help shouldn't it?
There's a bit of a fall out from last weeks race cancellation in that no refunds have been offered. We have been given the option of 1 of 3 10ks they operate, none of which I can make.
I was initially pretty relaxed about it as I thought it was organised by a club or monies went to charity, however I have now discovered that it's a profit making company. I sent them an e-mail yesterday using my work e-mail address (being a partner in a law firm I hoped it may make them think) essentially questioning why they didn't have race day cancellation insurance for a rural event in mid February, given I had just obtained a quote for £285. As far as I see things they are just a normal business and should have insured against this risk. I probably won't get a response.
