Great running WW. 10K tempo hovering around 6mm is a really tasty pace at this stage...or at any stage!!

Dan, that's a nice way to break up the long run as well. Always good pushing to MP after you've been on your feet for a good few miles

My Lactate Clearance or alternating tempo wasn't really worthy of reporting on. The wind played its part but I just couldn't seem to get the legs moving at all and even the drop back to marathon pace felt tough (although there's no way I'm in sub 3 shape anyway)

On the upside I'm feeling more motivated as each week passes. Still not putting enough miles in but getting a couple of quality sessions in until I can motivate myself to start a Sunday LR

I still don't really get how some of you guys can be so fast in training. That tempo from WW would have been a nice 10k PB for me, and close to a 5k pb in the second half. If you're not starting to feel quite confident, you should be!

Call from doctors and NO stress fracture has shown up. Its still not right as can feel when I move it however has got easier. Not sure what it is but back to the Doctors on Monday and will get a referral for Physio (I get private healthcare but need the referral!)

London could be back on :-)

Good news Daz, get stretching!

Tempo for me tonight and I should have stayed at home. Had the day off to look after the poorly kids and could feel myself slowing coming down with it too.

Cut out the easy miles and somehow managed a decent pace but as soon as I slowed after 6 miles I felt terrible. Got home cold and shivering and had to lay on the floor. Good job tomorrow is a rest day!
