    2021:

    Dunno really. Had all my 200/400/800 goals lined up for last year, was on target but horribly injured, then blah blah blah. Now spending more time Zwifting for a new team, but:

    • turn 48 without dying

    • stick to the rule of no runs without a 48hr gap, unless VERY short and VERY easy, to hopefully heal that final few % of dysfunction in my left Achilles (insertion)

    • pleased with 118bpm avg HR during easy 5:20/k pace HM on Saturday, so maybe build on cardio base to revisit the idea of a sub-17' 5k… but my heart truly yearns for the buzz of the 400m, or 800m if I'm at a manic phase of my mood cycle

    • pretty much carry on as I have been, enjoying a 3x run per week mix of road, trail, long, tempo, and hill

    • enjoy the exploits of other members of the running community.

    Watch out for the tight, off camber bends. It’s a ~400yd track, so lane 3 or 4 to make it metric. I only ever use it for doing strides on the straights. This time of year you probably only need a bit of tempo work anyway, if HM is your goal. Good luck!

    @andyp @Scoot It’s not a good idea to sneak in. All our club’s formal training there has been curtailed again, barring small organised groups for the juniors; and we (the club) are working hard with other stakeholders to keep things COVID-secure and prepare for reopening as soon as is practicable.

    For flat/measured training, alternatives regularly used by club mates are the cinder tracks at Regent’s & Victoria Park, or quiet residential pseudo-tracks like this one (AKA the Corbynator): https://strava.app.link/8O3A7eYzFcb

    Someone tell the Pauwels Bingoal kit people to redesign their mask, please. I can’t look at any more of this mutant mouth shit. It’s even worse during interviews.

    Search back a few pages and there’s a massive discussion about AT.

    Unless the symbiotic relationship is too deeply ingrained…

    It was inevitable they’d be in a micro-race against each other, first time head-to-head on the road. Now it’s out of their systems they can get on with racing the rest of the field.
