I’ve got a virtual 5 miler coming up in early May which I will count as sub-40 if I go under 32 mins!

I think that counts! I've only ever ran one 5 mile race and it was my last PB. Super happy to get under 32 mins :-)

Did a 5k TT yesterday on my a57 course that I tend to use for these runs.
20th March I ran 19:44 so I had two targets in mind sub 19:30 and beating the March time.
I did 19:29 so pleased with the progress. Still a bit to go my PB on this course is 19:01 from November last year.
Email from organisers of the Grimsby 10k today saying it’s going ahead with staggered start times

Had a easy week last week with no long run and just the 5k TT as a hard run.
This week in my long run (16 miles) I did 4*6 minutes at 10k to half marathon pace with 4 mins easy between the sets. Struggled to even hit half pace on 3 of the efforts. Couldn’t get the leg speed but could have ran at the pace I was doing the reps for longer. Felt good when I finished the run so just putting down as one of those runs

Got something to say?
