Normally I'd agree, but having done 450miles in some whopper of a hire car a few weeks ago, over 3 days, I'm comfy with just sitting there in the back relaxed!
The stress comes with that first time you walk into a room crammed with 300 suits. Gets the social anxiety ramping like mad

Was just about to to Staines but thought i best check when the masters relays is...Day before! Dagnabbit.Only a 3mile leg, but probs not wise. For anyone bar Pete 😕
You sure that race is lumpy Bus? BMD tends to pick the quick flat races, often with pot hunting capability - all the time pretending he's "tired" and "finished", and then puts in a quality time like that
I think going for a half marathon, you can probably get away with 1 session a week being properly solid, and the other one being more freestyled/mixed up at times.
Long run is the utter key!
5th 15miler of the campaign for me, 7.00 average.
Pleased with that, on my hilliest variation route. And a decent consistency in these 15, with the last 3 being 6.59,6.59, 7.00!
Woke up a bit tired, and it's been a packed week of late nights - plus some light hill reps yesterday.
Very relaxed week seeing out the last of my notice - so up for a big week hopefully.
Good time TR, 30secs is a huge improvement over 10k - how much were you expecting!!
Like BMD in the mid 36s, I wouldn't want to commit to being able to do quicker myself to be honest!
A well known local maniac of a runner did an 8mile tempo today on strava….
He wrote something like "strong start and finish, but tailed off between 2-7miles"
Good training there folks - Decent 10k at Chichester TR too. And the return of Dachs! wow.
Quiet weekend - ran around Gt Denham Parkrun with the kid, pretty breezy so he was a minute down on his best in 24.30 odd. Then went over to the Bedford track to do the track session I missed last week (16 x 400 off 60 secs). It was windy down the back straight so was a tough session. Decided to walk 30 secs and jog 30 to move the start point 100m on each rep. Started off on a horrible 73 and averaged about 70/71's, only squeezing out a 68 for the last one. Felt very tired at the end.
Heavy legged 12 or so yesterday morning, felt quite heavy this morning too. Thinking I may not have been 100% at the Southerns and it's really twatted me. Hopefully i'll perk up a bit in the week.
