Someone pointed out that they couldn’t see my comments. My mistake - something in my settings.
12 PM

XC / road / hill race 30:25 [3] 3.94 mi (7:43 / mi)

Paxton XC

This starts on rutted fields, which I struggle to get pace on, and felt out of sorts throughout the race. Megan was not too far ahead though, I was 30secs quicker than 2017 and the course seems to have got .34 miles further since then so I should be pleased. Ian Maxwell was stacks ahead.

Off-road running 13:07 [3] 1.37 mi (9:34 / mi)

Warm down with megan.

Road running 1:21:05 [3] 10.0 mi (8:07 / mi)

Paxton Sunday XC rather mucks up the traditional ‘easy Friday, hard Saturday long Sunday’ theme. Glad to get this done considering recent niggles.

Intervals - long endurance 37:56 [3] 5.08 mi (7:28 / mi)

Jan's plan said 'have some fun injecting 'tempo bursts' into a run'. My calf has been saying 'you are totally f*ed, do nothing'. It was v tight in one particular spot on the way into work and walking around the office all morning, and I have had repeated bouts of soreus footus (posterial tibialis?) on the right side all week. Alarm bells were very much ringing. So I did 5 miles of tempo bursts and somehow got away with out doing further damage. No idea how. This was totally taking the piss, running this lunchtime, and running hard too, but the calf even feels better now. Odd.

Need to do some yoga as my back feels dire but I am not sure when I am going to get the time tonight.
9 PM

Yoga 15:00 [3]

Dig out Rodney DVD to see if it would help my back, to Laurence’s amusement.

Tempo run 34:40 [3] 4.6 mi (7:32 / mi)

janJANday 9 is a 5 miler speeding up, so I did 3 laps of the meadows, one slow, one medium and one fast. Sore right calf.

Road running 15:21 [3] 1.87 mi (8:13 / mi)

Got my bag from work and ran home.

JK dilemma.

It’s just so uninspring to go back to that part of the world. I thought they were supposed to spread it about a bit. I mean we did cold Ash in 2013, and we saw all of it then. And do I run W40 (my class, with Sarah) W35 (cause I haven’t run it) M40 (with a Ray and poss Kim) or W21e (cause I might do the UK elite Leauge thingy). At least if it is being used for WOC pre-selection then surely these southern areas must be able to boast some intricate contour detail, nice bare rock running and some sexy open marshes that I don’t know about???

Not inspired by the British either. I think I saw as much of Kilnsey as I wanted back in JK 1995 (3rd, W17 since you ask. That’s good for me back then) and haven’t returned. And I still haven’t heard anyone swear as loudly in a wood since I did the British nights in 2015 at the relay venue Middleton Wood. I think it was the brambles. But then the MSR could be fun for Interlopers...
7 PM

Hills 1:08:06 [3] 6.56 mi (10:23 / mi)

janJAN day 8 said hills. Problem is I don’t believe in hills. If you want to run up hills quicker you get a bit lighter and do so biking. If you want a cardio session, find a bit of flat Tarmac or go to the track. But I didn’t want to be a grump, so I duly went to the opposite but of Queens drive and did 3 x Whinny Hill. Lovely evening for it and I felt good.
