Went out to the reservoir to do it, because I could mostly, but there aren’t too many decent spots with a good surface to do sessions, and since lots of the pitches are very muddy at the moment this is a handy option. Went with Euan and he went and did a 10k time trial while I did the reps, and with my recoveries etc we were pretty similar. I jogged the occasional recovery back a bit to link us a bit closer, but it worked well as it was. Reps all over the shop and didn’t get much of the speed intended because of heavy winds, and unwilling legs, but look, still efforts in there. Have mostly planned out the next block but after some discussions with Toni it will need a little updating, but left the sessions this week as they were and will think about it over the weekend. Left calf a little tight despite my confidence that they would manage - it is fine, still confident, but probably the necessary sign that I need to ease into to harder stuff, or do more calf work (well actually both). Mixed the session between the grass and road but a bit more on the road end. Anyway, good stuff.
