Sunday Mar 31 #

Running 3:15:00 [3] 21.5 mi (9:04 / mi) +1100m 7:50 / mi

Big tour of the Holme Valley. Not feeling sprightly but kept going and got it done okay. Plenty of ups and downs, mostly off road, all good training. Pretty screwed at the end.

Saturday Mar 30 #

Running 26:00 [3] 3.6 mi (7:13 / mi)

A decent warm up - good for this kind of stuff

Running 16:23 [5] 3.09 mi (5:18 / mi)

Yorkshire Road Relays, Leg 4 for our A team. Brownlee Centre in Leeds. - a good venue for it.

Predictably we were in the mix after a strong first 3, so I set off in 3rd, moments behind 2nd. Sheffield and Wakefield (both sub 15 minute runners) came storming by pretty quickly, so at least that put thoughts of a podium finish to bed.

I stuck to another chap (who had started just ahead of me) grimly for the remainder. He ended up having too much for me on the sprint finish (I used to be good at these), after I perhaps daftly tried to kick with about 400m to go. Mo Farah I wasn’t, and he sat on my shoulder and breezes past with 100m to go. Ah well.

Plus side - this was much faster than I’ve run before, off not loads of speed work of late. I think it counts as a 5K PB, near enough. It’s a very fast course, but still. I did enjoy it, and a nice diversion from the longer slow stuff.

Running 9:00 [3] 1.0 mi (9:00 / mi)

Token warm down jogging

Friday Mar 29 #

Running 42:00 [3] 5.4 mi (7:47 / mi)

Easy around the paths and fields (bring on the clock change) - keeping it relaxed before Yorkshire Road Relays tomorrow, unexpectedly thrust into a strong A team.

Thursday Mar 28 #

Running 1:07:00 [3] 8.6 mi (7:47 / mi)

Castle Hill with Steve, Helen and Ian. Steady and the time passed quickly

Wednesday Mar 27 #

Running 1:02:00 [3] 8.2 mi (7:34 / mi)

A rather laboured outing in Nottingham, along the river, through Attenborough Nature Reserve and back through the university. Bizarrely bumped into a colleague also out running.

Tuesday Mar 26 #

Running 50:00 [3] 6.8 mi (7:21 / mi)

Speed session down at Osprey, legs still super sore but able to get this done in a reasonable fashion - sticking with Clark for the majority.

Monday Mar 25 #

(rest day)

Legs are predictably trashed and body very tired. Considered staggering out for some slow miles, but opted for a long stretch and roll instead, and hopefully get out for a decent run tomorrow.
