Wendover SCOL. Brown - 3rd
Decided to take this as training after the mare last week; focused on having a plan, direction and picture/detail. I even paced on a handful of legs which was quite helpful. Mostly fine, made the odd mistake by being off on my compass (11 and 12) but otherwise pretty clean. Thought I had taken a sub-optimal route to 15 but not too sure now after looking at RG. One person was definitely slightly faster on the wider-less-climb route (although I reeled them back in on the drop into the control). I'm gonna do most regional races like that until it becomes a habit and hopefully as my running improves I'll be able to do that but quicker, and in races I'll actually push on the bits where I can.

3 PM

Running 1:22:09 [4] 13.95 km (5:53 / km) +268m 5:22 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara 12/2018

Recipe for a mad rainy run:
1) Run 5 km out of the city to find a hill
2) Wear road shoes because you are gonna be on road for most of the time
3) Once at Shotover eat a cereal bar to keep your energy up post-brunch. Put this under reflux for the rest of the run.
4) Pick out the path you though looked good on a map and run down it. Realise that it is way to small, overgrown, slippy and hard to follow; compound this the road shoes.
5) Find a different, better path back up the hill and run up this 3 times, descending by a slightly different route,
6) Go the same way back.
7) Get back, realise your phone is water damaged and hope the screen starts working again by tomorrow...

Running 29:06 [3] 5.44 km (5:21 / km) +6m 5:19 / km
shoes: Saucony Kinvara 12/2018

Meant to be easier work but shins said no. Felt like having a look at what our second year accommodation is like but couldn't see much running past on the pavement in the dark.

Running warm up/down 8:59 [1] 1.47 km (6:07 / km) +2m 6:04 / km
shoes: Bla Roclite Jul19

Running intervals 26:49 [4] 5.67 km (4:44 / km) +5m 4:43 / km
shoes: Bla Roclite Jul19

OUCCC Wednesday Intervals : 10 min tempo (2min); 3,2,1 min (1 min)
Shorter session for the people racing at Milton Keynes on Saturday but that's fine with me cos it helps me build up a little more steadily. Good session and hopefully these Wednesdays will start showing the benefits soon. I'll be honest with how slow my laps were:
10 min: 3:59; 3,2,1: 3:44, 3:44, 3:26.
Lets see those tumble!


Running 13:04 [1] 2.26 km (5:47 / km) +15m 5:36 / km
