While Edinburgh has Mark Pollard setting sessions for the hounds as a multi club group South West Manchester has Andrew Walling setting them for the Turn Moss Harriers session (i.e. for Callum but then we steal the session)
2x5mins (90s), 4x90s(60s), 10 mins.
Good session and working hard. Running well with Ben for the 5 mins with it feeling like I'd maybe gone a bit hard. The 90s felt pretty tough going but ground them out ok. Kept it together on the 10 but was really tying up in the last couple of minutes and it was a fairly max effort by the end. Figure it should probably be more of a threshold effort but getting a bit caught up being in such a big group with that much depth.
Paces: 5:21, 5:20, 4:55, 5:07, 5:06, 5:13, 5:31
Some parts of this into the wind feeling tough. The paces are only going to get slower over winter though as TM transitions into its normal muddy xc state

Despite all my cool downs now being flat instead of uphill they've gotten even slower and I'm ok with this
