    A shorty today. 3.12 miles, 27 minutes, a loop around Witton.

    I've started work pre 6:30 Monday / Tuesday and both days just been piled up with orders and similar today, with already enough to keep me going until 3 ish. In many ways it's great, but it makes getting out for decent run difficult.

    1km's and 1 miles seem to hurt me the most. Short enough to be uncomfortably quick, but long enough to be incredibly fatiguing after a few reps.

    Last summers Track Mile race was probably pound-for-pound the most painful race I've ever done.

    I always do shorter reps these days, as they are, or were, done with 9-12 year olds. We might run hard for a minute or so, but it is usually less than that, but fast of course. One of my juniors beat Killian down Seat Sandal on his record breaking round.
    We were repeatedly told on the level 2 coaching course days not to do 400 metre reps with juniors, but that 300s and 500s were OK - it was felt that 400s tempted them to unwittingly abuse their energy systems - something that adolescence sorted out.
    It was Killian's book on mountain running that finally persuaded me that running slow to run fast probably had some logic to it.

    This is something that has taken me such a long time to figure out... but has become more emphasised over my furlough period and a large increase in mileage.

    Realising that i'll never be able to run my hard sessions properly unless I start being a lot more sensible on my steady runs.

    It still takes a lot of discipline to listen to your own thoughts and advice though! I saw it summed up best on a recent YouTube video, where the guy said we all like to constantly train in a higher 'training zone' as it makes us feel like we are benefiting and working hard.
