TR - more top training, that's a solid pace for 23M.
CD - sounds like a good run on a tricky course, and nice to dip under 80.
LMH - a HM at MP is great training, so don't worry if it didn't feel brilliant.
Jools - you must have maintained some decent fitness to knock out 18M.
TGO - that's a huge PB and sounds like you could knock some more off that on a faster course.
Wardi - a nice mix of running over the weekend there, and (nearly) 70M for the week is pretty solid.
CC2 - those paces are close to what you planned, especially taking into account the wind. And you were running it as a structured training run, so I wouldn't worry about being pipped for the win (unless it was a very substantial prize, which would be annoying!).
I squeezed in 5M on Friday evening, but then was fairly busy with family events over the weekend (brother's birthday), so only managed 12M on Sunday morning. I randomly decided to do 3x(1M easy, 1M moderate, 1M fairly hard) within the 12M, paces were about 7m/m for the easy, 6:15 for the moderate and 5:55 for the fairly hard, which is fine, but it didn't feel smooth for some reason. My legs felt pretty rubbish from the start - they did loosen up a bit but it felt like I was muscling it along rather than flowing. Anyway, got it done and legs feel OK today.
42M for the week which is my biggest week for a while!
Hi all, saw a few familiar faces at Bramley at the weekend.
Pace maker for a 23 miler with 11 @8mm [email protected] and 2 easy
Longest run for 7 years and NO I am not running a marathon this year
Nice miles TR and EE.
5.5M back to nursery with the rucksack yesterday evening, so 9.5M for the day. Weirdly the rucksack doesn't seem to make much difference to pace (about 10-15 secs/mile I reckon), even though it weighs at least 5kg. That's on the flat anyway, up a hill it would probably be worse.
Gobi - you're obviously keeping in reasonable shape!
Al_P - good to see you back. Last time I saw you was the back of your head gradually moving away from me about 2M into VLM, and I never saw you again.
JoeB - very tempted to try a pair of 4%s, but I've never really got on with Nikes and can't justify the price (I refuse to even go into 3 figures for a pair of shoes). Interested to hear what you think of them once you've tested them a bit more (particularly in a longer race which appears to be where you get the benefit).
8M at lunchtime, partly offroad with some moderate efforts (53:30 total). Amazingly warm for this time of year - I stripped down to short-sleeve only, and I was still sweating a lot.
