Reasonably pleased 1min behind Barrable but 10mins down on Jonny though more focused on tomorrow I think.
The Lithuanian Express caught me up at the far end and ran with me till about midway then chose a different (bad) route choice and he got away. Felt like I was running well enough to stay with him

The usual....Groin felt a bit painful last night on the run and was really tight this morning.

also lookslike I may have to rock the treadmill again as its rather snowy out :(
12 PM

Running warm up/down 11:00 [3] 1.8 km (6:07 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-2170

Treadmilling :(

Running intervals 31:30 [5] 7.9 km (3:59 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-2170

7*3mins(90s) on the treadmill to make it worthwhile as its bare slippy out.
Kept the efforts reasonable....with hindsight could have maybe pushed them a little harder though the machine didn't seem to be enjoying it too much.
Ran them all at 3:20mins/km....Maybe should have gone down to 3km pace (3:10mins/km though?)

Finished off very sweaty though so I was working hard

Legs feel very tired after yesterday, but after analysing my race I'm really rather pleased with the result. It will be interesting to see how a middle race goes next weekend against some of the big boys. I had quite a few good splits yeterday and was in the top 3 during the first third. Didn't drop too much time during the second and apart from one larger mistake I would have acheived my specific classic distance goal of sub-100mins. But pleased to get one of my main aims yesterday of <15% behind the winner
6 PM

Running 1:01:10 [3] 11.4 km (5:22 / km) +300m 4:44 / km
shoes: Asics GT-2170

Timetable has changed so can't make circuits anymore. Was going to do drills with Willy and Crickmore but they both wimped out. So went for a steady hour.
Down to JackW's house and then through Sharrow Vale, Netheredge and Brincliffe to Eccy Road. Down through Greystones to Endcliffe Park then on to Riversdale to do 7*25s(35s) strides, which felt pretty awful. then back via Broomhill.
Legs and core feeling especially crap after yesterday and hills felt like they were made of sand
