    Interesting session today... 3 mile effort, jog recovery, then a 2 mile effort...

    Interesting (but not altogether surprising) that whilst I still finished in a relatively similar position within the group, there was a noticeable gap compared to when we do hills.

    Also was interesting that the hardest part was getting going again after the recovery, it really knocked my rhythm out, although some people struggled a lot more than me with this and had a terrible 2nd effort....

    Up to the Outwoods, 33 minutes at a "moderate" pace, with the rain just starting (about two hours earlier than the latest forecast on metoffice.com said it would). But it was only my second run since getting over flu compounded by cellulitis. Felt quite good, but no way was my fitness up to doing the Hoofstones race, as originally intended for this weekend.

    Tonight was tough going, 1 x 2mile, 2 x 1 miles, 2 x 800m...

    Maybe I'm getting a bit stronger, or just learning my pace a bit (probably a combination of both), but I'm keeping up with guys who I wouldn't even come close to 6weeks ago, so the regular training is definitely helping, both in terms of speed, and getting consistent good quality miles in.

    Hopefully on Sunday I'll find out that at least some of it has transferred to the fells (or perhaps not!)

    Did the Coventry Parkrun this morning.

    19:46

    Was banking on under 20 mins, but secretly hoping to get a bit closer to 19. I'd have been pleased with below 19:30, so I can't really quibble too much over 16 seconds. But still it's the first time I've done a flat "race" for over two years, and it is way, way below my preferred distance. So nice to do a 'speedy' run.

    was hoping to push on the 2nd lap, but whilst I still felt fresh, I didn't seem to have the turn of speed to convert it into a faster time on the ground.

    National Cross Country next weekend, where I certainly won't be in the top 20.

    Beacon Hill, Broombriggs Hill and Windmill Hill. 74 minutes, longest run since Achilles tendinopathy kicked in last May. The tendons weren't free of pain, but they tolerated the onslaught.

    But who were the couple running the other way round the Broombriggs loop, whom I saw once at the bottom and then again at the top?

    �� two miles around the local fields.
    Sweating like a pig,
    Couldn't breath,
    Took well over 30mins
    And proud I did it.
    Feeling tired but good now ��

    WELL DONE TREV. That's the right attitude. Just start from where you're at and keep working at it.

    Lancaster Park Run for me ...... reckoned to be about the toughest in the UK ...... still nursing a hamstring / ITB niggle and nearly 3 minutes outside my 'soft' PB. Just chuffed that I maintained a jog up all the hills.

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!
