Well done to Mrs JGav in what sound like pretty horrible conditions!
DT - 16 is a very good effort. Not sure how long it took you, but my 8 on Saturday took me 1hr15 and I wouldn't have fancied being out there much longer!
Rest day as usual today, but with the forecast being mixed for later in the week I expect I will try and do my tempo session for the week tomorrow night. Am looking at 4 miles tempo.
I have now entered a 10k on 8 April, so the plan is to have a hard week this week, then a couple of lighter weeks (whilst still doing a couple of sessions and semi-decent mileage) in order to try and hit the race fresh. Did 46.10ish in the same race 2 years ago - hoping to go around 44.30 this time around (weather conditions permitting, as we seem to have to say these days!).
Andrew, I was out for just under 2 hrs 10. I think 1.45 was probably the tipping point for me where it became horrible.
Easy 6.5 last night on my usual reasonably hilly loop came out 7.42mm for entry level easy hr which was positive. Lunchtime I am planning 4 at hmp just to give me some idea of where I am at. I haven't raced since new years eve, and timing wise that was far from optimal, so I have no idea realistically where I am at.
4 miles went well coming in at 6.13mm for 164 hr so still some way off my usual race effort hr which is good given I was practically running 10k pb pace, less 3 seconds a mile.
8 miles over lunch as a recovery run came out 8mm.
Other than a short run Friday and some strides I am now going to taper for Sunday. I'll soon find out if my watch/hrm is broken or I am faster!
im enjoying my first rest day since end of January. I have had to leave all my kit at home to avoid the temptation as Thursday lunchtime my favourite sufferfest class is on.
Had a fairly brutal sports massage last night. Pretty sore today but well needed. In the build up to London now I am going to get a few in just to properly loosen off. Another lighter massage tomorrow morning which is a more stimulatory affair. Quite looking forward to getting a race on finally!
A stimulatory massage hey DT?
Gav - I have no idea who people find the time (or energy) to train for a tri - so hats off to you!
Last night's tempo didn't happen - have had a bad lower back the past couple of days, so decided to postpone and just do an easy 4 miler instead at about 8.50 pace.
