    Not a bad session all in all. I was hitting the right workrate at the crest of the hill and was able to kill myself over the last 40m to the grit bin. I mostly hit the grit bin utterly exhausted and in o2 debt, which is where i needed to be. It's funny how the first rep is so awful and hurts so badly; i think it's because your body isn't used to the suffering and tells you it can't handle it. It takes about 2 or 3 before your body remembers it can actually survive.
    I did my Outwoods reps today (lunchtime, so I had the bright sunshine between the trees to my left): slightly longer and steeper than yours (0.3m, 150ft). Like you, I felt awful on the first rep, but was shocked to see how fast I had done it (2m42s). Unfortunately, although I felt much better on reps 5 and 6 (the last two), the times were much slower (2m51s and 2m53s).

    Just had a look at Carr Bridge Drive on Google Streetview. Found the grit bin; I reckon you should be turning right up Carr Bridge Close from there as your final push.

    One thing i've noticed on reps (and having a GPS watch has helped)

    When you get several reps in and you think you're slowing down, it can be surprising that you're maintaining pace, or even speeding up... it's just the fatigue building.

    It does encourage you to keep pushing the reps out.

    9m speed endurance today. An ACW loop of Thruscross starting and finishing at the Swinsty car park.

    I bonked at the 8m point which has never happened before, so i ended up walking in the last mile. Nutritionally i don't think i did anything any different to normal, so i'm not sure where this bonk came from. Fortunately the Hall Farm honesty box cake shed had a slab of coffee cake for 3 quid which i wolfed down in one go.

    I'm still trying to get to grips with why i feel so slow on the leg across the moors. It comes right after a climb which is the most punishing and exhausting part of the route. I don't know if the undulating nature of the moor has anything to do with it, but i always struggle to get my legs moving consistently fast.

    The mud does wind me up a bit, but I know what I should be doing and how hard I should be working on every leg. The quality is there.

    Carr Bridge Drive reps last night, 0.25m 110', 7 reps.

    I had another in me in my mind, but my body was weakening. Tightness down the left lateral knee and i could feel my left glute medius was tight in warmup.
