Running warm up/down 59:00 [2] 7.5 mi (7:52 / mi)

Warm up (feeling pretty good but right upper back stiff) and warm down (feeling pasted). Warm down involved collecting Mike's shoes which he had left under the car as we drove off (nice that other people do silly things sometimes).

Running 1:09:31 [5] 13.1 mi (5:18 / mi)

Wilmslow Half Marathon (http://www.wilmslowhalf.org.uk/)

Eased off a bit on the training this week to try and run a pb (old one from Bristol in the build up to Chicago was 70:40). Plan was to run pretty even splits and had to throttle back for the first few miles. Felt comfortable most of the way and it felt nice to be constantly catching and passing people (I was 40th at about 7 miles and worked my way up to 20th). Finished in a pb time so was really pleased and felt that there might have been a little bit in the tank if I had started a bit faster.

It was a happy car on the gorgeous drive back over Woodhead - Mike ran well after his biggest week and Clare got a pb by 4 minutes (but missed out on sub 1:40:00 by 30 painful seconds).

1- 4 miles: 21:11, 5 (5:10), 6 (5:13), 7 (5:15), 8 (5.22) 9 (5:26) - uphill, 10 (5:20) - uphill, 11 (5.08), 12 (5.18), 13 (5.17)

Running 52:00 [2] 8.0 mi (6:30 / mi)

Run through Beeley woods to Oughtibridge and then back along the roads. Stopped to do some stretching and threw in a few strides to mix it up a bit. Got caught in a hail storm which was not pleasant but luckily it cleared up quickly.

Run to work nice and steady.

Running intervals 41:00 [4] 6.5 mi (6:18 / mi)

Running 40:00 [3] 5.5 mi (7:16 / mi)

Warm up and down.

Running 52:00 [3] 8.0 mi (6:30 / mi)

Run up to Oughtibridge and back. Pretty busy day at work today and struggled to keep myself motivated enough to get out the door once I was home.

Speakey had performed miracles in the attic so hopefully we will be ready for the carpet on Friday!

Felt very ordinary on the run.

S+C 40:00 [3]

At Jim's.

Running 20:00 [2] 3.0 mi (6:40 / mi)

Easy morning run with Matt.

Running 54:00 [3] 7.0 mi (7:43 / mi)

Run to work and then home from track. Mike caught me up in Hillsborough and raised the pace a little.

Running intervals 26:30 [5] 7.6 km (3:29 / km)

Track session. 4 x (1200m,100m jog, 400m, 200m jog). Sharper pace was a bit of shock to the system (not run this fast for about a month). Went ok, contemplated a 5th but didn't want to overcook it. Did the 1200s between 3.40 and 3.43 and the 400s between 70 and 72.
