That's pretty insane, OO, covering that far on the track!
Valencia sounds very nice and always produces fast times for the elites. It'll be a nice bit of mild winter sun as well.
SBD- Solid effort yesterday given by the last 3m you'd run quite a long way. That does seem random just picking the race up though like that.
gdawg, nice reps and long running.
Gul, some good miles also.
Speedy, great work on the 1500m. Did you sort matters with your coach? Yes, Maidenhead is about 6m from Dorney.
63m for me last week. Big run on Friday with 6m easy, then 2 x 6m at mp off 1m easy, which came out at 1.26.25 and 6.35mm, then a 1m cd. I've not done a session that big in summer before, and even tough it wasn't hot I underestimated how much more 18c would affect me than 8c. I was spitting feathers by the last 3 miles, drenched in sweat and quite depleted as a result. That's 5 runs of 20-21m complete and 3 or 4 18-19 milers done. Just 22m next sunday as a raceday equivalent time on feet run then that's it for the big ones.
Did an easy 8m Saturday morning, was a bit creaky at first but got moving second half then a rest yesterday and spin first thing today. Will get out lunchtime for a recovery run. Have a sports massage booked in tomorrow evening, which I am really ready for!
This little blast of hot weather might be quite useful as it should in theory starting cooling quite dramatically as we get into the last couple of weeks of September so this final hit should serve us well.
We ought to hear further from London in the next few days re start times and waves. Everyone had until yesterday to submit details and the event doesn't have the luxury of time to sit on things for 10 days now.
Good you got that all sorted with the coach.
Yes, unless you tell them you are horrifically under pressure at home or work, or have a niggle etc they assume you are fine and the head is above water.
I also think with coaching it takes a bit of time for coach to work out what you can tolerate safely and handle within the rest of your life.
I am pleased normality has resumed, Gul! Probably wise in the temps forecast today.
I am just speculating here, OO, but perhaps the sluggish feel is from the parkrun and then 22m on the track...…
Off out in the lunchtime sun for my usual Tuesday torture session. Will have to slow it down today! Sports massage later then, which from experience will also be torture.
SBD, hope the intervals went well? I am not sure on the thinking of the broken session. Lewis never sets blocks of effort more than 10m in one hit, also, it's a way of extending out the mileage covered as you don't recover hugely with an 8mm in the middle of that.
Session went well, covering the 10k in 38.30. My strava linked temp app said it was 28c when I started at about 12.20.
12m MLR today.
