Morning, and a bright sunny one at that!
What: restWhy: caution
Not a good night with my calf...but having been up for an hour or so there seems to be no problem.
No lyrics today, but off to work for the morning any second!
What 10.34Why MLRLyrics No
Went a bit off course due to traffic stopping me crossing the A40 where I normally would, but nice to run in some new areas.
Pig of a day at work so some respite ahead of the hard graft. May be back later.

OH: well done yesterday getting that 21 miler in!alehouse: why do you find track 10ks harder? I actually prefer them. Not that I've done many (there is very limited choice) ... I did one and thought WOW. No hills or hidden surprises and the bouncy track surface helps with speed which is great if you have none, like me ... and the atmosphere in a stadium adds a whole new dimension to racing. I suddenly felt like a proper athlete even though it was just an open to all race on my old school's Summer Sports Day!Dustin: sounds a bit your sesh! I think the talked about Bondarenko sessions on Marathon Talk in one episode. Can't remember which one though.what: 10 miles with strides and 6x600m reps at the endwhy: see above ... no speed!last hard: todaylast rest: 25/8lyrics: no
Chick: I've never done a track 10k, and have no great ambition to do so! It was just a group of us talking and the general consenus was that it just seems so much further...its probably the monotony and the relentnessness of it! I understand your view, though!
Tom: softly softly etc etc
Ouch Dustin that a killer session.... same with Chick 6 x 600 not easy either....
What - 6.5 Steady for meWhy - Club sessionLast hard - YesterdayLast Rest - Fri
Ah, Ferry Meadows, you're bringing back memories Tom!
chickadeee - that sounds like a tough session.
Dustin - hope you get to use the training in an autumn marathon.
Chick: meant to say I have actually done a couple of one hour races on the track, but somehow I had no problem with them...obviously a slower pace and you knew how long you were running for! Everyone had the same aim: run as far as possible...quite a different feeling to a straight race, even though they were! Have done far too many 5ks on the track and that is plenty far enough at "speed".
Yes, some good sessions going on, notably Chick and Dustin. And well done on toughing things out yesterday, OH.
