I had a little jaunt in the snow just after Xmas which was quite enjoyable, though left my hips a bit sore. I expect they had to work in a slightly different way to stabilise me.
Nice 8, Gul, though short for you!
MsE, yes it can all get a bit fraught that is for sure. In the first lockdown I couldn't even exercise due to injury, whereas as at least this time there is that escape. You seem to be back to pretty well now after up and downs you've had. Yes, i'm pretty sure i'm in the shape of my life right now.
Just been out for my weekly tempo with 1m wu and cd then 8m alternating between mara pace and hmp. Splits came out 6.46, 6.13, 6.44, 6.04, 6.42, 6.05, 6.36 and 6.05. Average pace was 6.25 and average HR was a meagre 157, which is about my lowest for that pace and distance.
Now, as expected the mp miles felt very pedestrian immediately after the hmp miles and I had to work hard to pull the pace back. However, what came as the biggest surprise was just how comfortable the hmp miles felt.
Something has definitely changed in the last 2 weeks. Everything feels faster but easier.
Solid tally, OO. Yes, injury is of course the main risk when we consider the 'what's the worst that could' in terms of bashing on regardless.
I have a similar session this week Gul, with 3 x 2m. Nice work. That's good that they are doing the whole household given we don't quite know how the vaccine fully protects people and their ongoing ability to transmit it to others.
4m recovery run in a bit.
