    Week progressing steadily and easily as intended... 40.5 miles so far, all pretty much easy pace.

    If i feel fresh i'll attempt a fast parkrun on saturday morning.

    Entered Borrowdale... will be my 100th fell race and wanted it to be one of the "classics"

    Ran Coventry Parkrun this morning in a rather disappointing 19:15

    Despite not training specifically for short, fast races for quite a while, i still hoped/expected a lot better (i ran 18:14 in very icy conditions back in Feb).

    I guess it shows for me to reach my best level at that distance (perhaps i can just shade under 18mins) i need to be doing regular specific work for it.

    Will have a bash at Penrith Parkrun at some point during August.

    11 steady miles this morning bought the week to a close, with a final score of 63.5 miles.

    I wasn't expecting anything from the week except for a decent haul of easy miles. All the same, i was disappointed with yesterday's parkrun but i won't take it to heart.

    Next week... session with Coventry on tuesday, but it's all about Borrowdale next weekend. After that its focus on a serious block of fell training, as save for a couple of midweek races in august, there'll be nothing else until the British Champs race in early september.

    Club night in Coventry and a track session...

    (1200m, 800m, 400m) x2
    4 x 200m
    all off 90secs rest

    Intention was to keep it at, or close to, 5:20/mile pace. Became apparent on the first rep that this wasn't happening, my longer reps being more like 5:40/mile, with the shorter reps being on pace.

    When i look back to earlier in the year when i was flying around the track, i had been training specifically for that 1500mtr track race, no hills, and knocked out a quick 5km as well.

    So it shouldn't really be a surpsise that when i'm working a lot more fell-based, and off the back of some long hard fell races, that i'm not quite maintaining my speed on the flat at the moment. So perhaps shouldn't be too hard on myself.

    Was a good workout, 9 miles in total.

    A few easier days before the mighty Borrowdale on saturday, then looking to a couple of short midweek races which are counters in the Eden fell champs.
