Some great racing and outcomes there, OO. Not too shabby when you consider they all happened on the same day.
Speedy, that is quite a big session and easy to make too big by running 10s per mile too fast. My tempos peak out at 10m, but I do cover circa 13m at MP but in a broken up effort as opposed continuous.
Some good runs being posted there, Gul.
Good to get the 20 in, SBD and a decent weeks tally.
Jools, yes, as long as the A race comes together, the rest can be written off.
Having run long Friday, I did my usual Friday tempo yesterday. 8M with usual application of nudging it along 2nd half. Came out 6.22mm for 162bpm so reasonable but not peak level by any means. I think a week of beers and footy is having an impact so after being out again yesterday, i'm staying off it this week until Saturdays game.
Have my 2nd jab over lunchtime, so going to duck out before it for my 5m recovery run.
Nice work on the track session, Gdawg and the double day. I get a bit anxious before some runs for sure so you're not alone.
Gul, you are smashing in the miles. Amazing you can do 20, get back and tell the tale on here all before I've even got up!
Lorenzo, hope the legs/body are holding up well.
SBD- good bit of tempo work. I see the Germans still have UK on the banned list despite opening up to most of the rest of the world. I really can't see Berlin being feasible.
As for Bedford, I entered a while ago as another race I was doing with them cancelled so instead of taking the race alternatives they proposed I just switched my entry to the 20. My plan is to run it as I plan to run London, which at that stage in the cycle maybe a little faster than mara pace. It'll be 10m at 6.30-6.35mm then 10m getting faster so average pace starts pushing towards mid 6.20s.
No side effects from 2nd jab accept a slightly sore arm which was good. Bit of a session yesterday in the warm sunshine over lunch. Really did pick the wrong day this week to do it. 3 x 2m off 2 min jog/walk. Pairings came in 5.52 and 5.54, 5.47 and 5.57, 5.46 and 5.57 . Overall pace was 6.10 with recoveries and 6.37mm in 39.18. As you can see from the individual miles, the 2nd mile in each block I was blowing a bit and overheating.
Spin first thing this morning and a recovery run a bit later.
