Well done on the final VO2 session, Steve. Some good paces there too. Christ, how early have you been
running if you have still been with headtorch in recent times?!
Really enjoyed the graph, NE. I even showed it during some GCSE stats revision (err Sir,
shouldn’t it be a histogram ‘cos it’s continuous data?). I am a big fan of
polarised training, and doing so on effort. Like others have said, colleagues
don’t believe me when I say what speed I do most (recovery) running at – over 3m/m
slower than a recent 10k race. And I am absolutely made up for you with the parkrun
PB – fantastic!
Well done on the long run, TR. Hope the taper goes well. Time to pepper in some fast stuff?
Fantastic 10k time, Reg,
and a very pleasing podium in what must have been a strong field. Amazing what
you can do when you string a few injury-free weeks together. Hope it stays that
way for you.
Crikey that is a hell of a long, fasted run AWC. You’re in great shape.
Great to see you getting stuck into all the events, Jooligan. I’m sure with consistency
things will pick up again before you know it.
Standard parkbuggy run on Saturday morning then I got a bit
giddy in the sunny weather and went for an afternoon bike ride. Really enjoyed
it, although no idea how I used ride significantly fast for 6-7 times as far.
Just shows how the specificity of training, I guess. Great fun nonetheless.
Sunday morning was the classic ten route from home, followed
by a recovery 7 with spoons this
morning. Really good to discuss his progress and route back to full training.
Just shows the level of training on the thread that a near 80 mile week is
merely a step towards that!
I’ve gone 30, 50, 76M since London and feeling generally
good for it. I'll try to squeeze in a track session and a commute to work this week, before doing very little in Corfu next week
Morning all. Good to see things picking up a little bit on
here. Although a lull between campaigns is understandable, and probably a good
Slight revision to my three weeks post London: 30, 50, 67.
I’d love to see how you went in an ultra, HA. Hope the calf is ok. I did Chester
and ran a PB there in 2016. Slightly undulating but a genuinely fast course.
Nice mix of busy town a village support then quiet yet beautiful countryside. Good
start/finish at racecourse. Big fan, although logistics usually win the day.
Great to hear you’re in for Valencia, HPR. Would love to do it one day. As Joe says, it has a reputation as being a great race.
Get well soon, Joe.
I find a good blowout every now and then can help reset things physically and
Good mix of paces there, TR.
Considering it, Jools,
but I suspect it won’t quite work out. Looking forward to Blaisdon nonetheless.
Hope it goes well.
Feeling a little beaten up today, perhaps after not sleeping
very well last night. Canal 10 at easy effort for just below 7:30m/m. Absolutely
glorious morning. Once clear of town it was really calm and picturesque.
Headphone ran out of battery half way through which turned out to be a positive
– loads of birdsong.
