I'm not sure 4am counts as waking early, that's just waking in the night in my books!!!
Gdawg, hope the legs are returning to you now!
Hope the 5k goes well, OO.
SBD- Nice reps, similar to my session yesterday. Enjoy the 15.
Decent session yesterday of 10 x 1k at 10kp off 1 min. A pretty savage session but a staple session. Didn't really fancy it at the beginning but settled in with splits of 3.43, 3.37, 3.35, 3.37, 3.35, 3.36, 3.36, 3.36, 3.31 and 3.29 so was able to pick it up slightly in second half. It didn't help that the sun came out at halfway and the last 4 reps really were tough work and at times felt like I was barely wading through the sea of lactic, so was pleasantly surprised to see the times.
Off out over lunch for a 12m MLR.
Sadly still no passport so flying to Lanzarote is looking hopeless! We are going to visit family in Dorset for the weekend just to get away somewhere and then maybe do a few days in London next week just because we are taking time off anyway as we need a break.
OO, another tremendous 5k effort there and well done also to junior.
SBD- Well done on the MLR, I don't think mine will extend beyond 13m.
Speedy, good to hear from you. My return to the office is pending, though 3 days per week, probably from 2nd week in September. Though that isn't too bad as by then there'll only be a big week to 10 days of training left before taper time.
Yesterdays 12 was kept nice an easy and came in just under 8mm. Today was spin first thing then 6m over lunch with some strides. Tomorrow I am going to get out in morning for my Friday tempo, at lower effort than normal, as we are setting off at midday and anticipate 5 hours in the car.
It’s great to have a read
back and see most of the usual suspects still hard at it. OO that 5k time is
I’m just dropping in to let
you all know I’m hoping to complete my 100th marathon/ultra tomorrow! It’s been
a long bumpy road but I’m nearly there. The champagne is on ice.
DT – I hope your tempo run
went well and you have a good time away
Speedy – Always good to hear
from you. I hope it all goes well in London
Nice 13 miles Gul
OO 45 miles and 3 swims is
GD – Good 20 miler and
mileage in the last week
My 100 marathons or ultras
goal has been achieved! It was a 6-hr race at Woodburn Forest Park about 10
miles from Belfast. I completed 10 laps of a 3.9 mile course in 5:23:02 (8:14
m/m pace) and didn’t need to go any further. No-one was close enough to start
an 11th lap before 6-hrs were up.
I received a nice trophy for
the win and another for my 100th. I’m off to drink. I’ll not write a
race report but might write a bit about my journey to 100 soon.
