Ultra / Adventure racing
Thursday Session - 14th November
What: 5 miles in the rain at lunch
Why: to get out of the office and listen to my audiobook - bliss
Last hard: Monday
Last rest: Saturday
What: 6x800m@15kph w/400m jog recovery on t’mill
Why:variation on 10*400m, but so full of it after 2 days off did 6 instead of 5
Last hard day: sun tempo/race
Last rest: tues & wed
So why so virtuous: well I usually do my 400m intervals at 14.6kph, but having done 4.5mile race at 14.1kph I felt I had up the speed for the intervals…and I then realised that
15kph is a 20min 5k and
if I didn’t need the recoveries
and I could do twice as many
and I gave myself a little incline
then I’d be on for a sub 40min 10k
which is about as likely as Osama bin Laden taking his pet pig El Al from Baghdad to Tel Aviv…
oh well maybe one day
What: 8 miles easyish
Why: Clocking up the miles
Last hard run: Yesterday
Last easy day: Todayish
5 - mile turned to very wet seven mile at an easy pace
why - mad for it - felt angry about first two naff miles
3.8 mile acceleration run as planned. Finished with a mile at 5:57. Hopefully should have enough in the tank for a long hard effort tomorrow.
Hi all - haven't joined in here before but I thought it was about time I did.
What: 40mins (4.3miles) on treadmill
Why: It's my birthday and running in the rain would have just been too depressing
Last hard: Sunday
Last rest: Monday
OOO bit late I know!
Busy all day - met another employment agency having endured SWT and the tube.
Got home to find the wife in distress as 4yo nativity costume (she's the innkeeper) has to be in by next Friday.Toured the town looking for ideas and finally got something that can be doctored......
Managed to make it out later just as the heavens opened.
What : 8 miles allegedly easy pace, turned out quicker than expected (57m as opposed to 64).
