Too early for me!
10 AM

Running - hard race 35:33 [4]

Darlington 10k. Are you supposed to use gun time or chip time? It was either a PB or pw, either way by a second. Bit hillier course than söder runt and race felt the opposite, after starting with the adrenaline (bit quick) i sort of had to keep slowing bit by bit til i found a good feeling. So felt crap most of the first half but better later on. Almost close enough behind winner Emma Clayton to feel like i should try and go for it in the last 2km but i had no change up at all! So no chance. Quite big prize money for second place tho so it wasnt so bad. Not so happy with the time but it was a good training.

Running - hard intervals 16:00 [3]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara - July 2017

Had a "great idea" to frontload the day with early intervals. 2 x 8/1 min threshold feel up the incline then 8 x hills at hawsker (shorter hill than i remember, more like hill sprints!) then 5 x 30/90 on the way back to try and get a better turnover. Not much in the way of speed, long ints especially werent so successful. Hamstrings and glutes tight AF, i guess still from tuesday. Oh well, just about earned a croissant at least.

Running - hard intervals 20:00 [4]
shoes: Saucony Kinvara - July 2017

Time to start working through some gears again, took one of my favourite pre woc sessions but tried not to completely empty the tank before the evening (surface didnt lend to that anyway, rain meant loads of mud and puddles on the cinder track). Think i got an okay balance. 5x 3'/30"-1'/2'.

Running - hard race 34:00 [4]
shoes: Inov-8 XTalon 212 April 2017

Ravenscar Rumble - local fell race, really fun course starting at the top at Ravenscar, down onto the clifftops, along then the main climb up onto the top above the alum works then over to the highest point, down a bit then last little climb back up to the village. good mix of surfaces, had a bit of everything! first two men got quite a lead on the first downhilll from being stronger and faffing less on the slippery flags and wooden bridges but managed to catch second place on the climb and hold on to the end. new womens record too (i think nearly 4mins off the old one) so lots of beer to keep the entourage happy :-D

Running - easy warm up/down 20:00 [2]

should have warmed down longer but it was cold and rainy and they had free cake

Not exactly as planned when i woke up at 9.30, back from family outing in Bay on the cinder track and then strides. Still a bit full of breakfast.
