    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, some good stuff to go on and work into a post-EfM (2nd week of Nov) winter training plan.

    A while back someone posted the "best 10k plan" or something similar, anyone know who/what it was? Someone has used it a couple of times with good results. Need some inspiration for some workouts to increase speed.

    I've UTFS'd but turns out there is a lot of mention of 10k and training in a running thread. Who knew?

    Doing you a favour really, you don't have to sit through Bake Off.

    Don't go too hard on the first one, you're aiming for a consistent hard effort across however many reps so better to hold back a little on the first one or two efforts so you have enough in the tank to go just as hard for the last ones without fading.

    You might prefer to walk down some and then jog the rest so you're already running when it's time to go for the next rep, as opposed to having to transition from a walk to run which I think is harder, if only mentally. But do make sure you are gettin genough recovery, your HR should come right back down between reps.

    I generally find my second and last efforts tend to be the fastest. Second because you're more warmed up but still fresh, last because it's the last one so can go all out and don't need to hold back for the next rep.

    Fucking hell it's literally on the membership card "For everyone, for ever". Rather than try to turn something into something else maybe just accept you're in the wrong club, and maybe you should stick to the local Conservative Club with all the other cunts?

    Found about 20 small puffballs today. Meadow or common I think, probably good to eat but left them be as I was running/dipping in river.

    Was gonna say Turn the Page. Better than the original.

    What are those things on the oak leaf? Seen them before but never knew what they were.

    if that makes sense?

    Yep. I was assuming you would need to build a timber frame within the opening as I couldn't see that in the last photo you posted (garages you're trying to buy). If that's not the case then you're all good opening-size-wise and can ignore me :)

    Hadn't clocked those hinges either. They solve the "door in the way" issue.

    If you ever forsee a situation where you're going from one garage to the other you'd have to go a bit further (minor inconvenience), but also would be quite isolated from one garage when you were in the other and might not see someone coming to swipe your bikes/tools/whatever (non-minor inconvenience), when with an up and over door you have a bit more visibility. This might be a non-issue based on location though, if it's not a through route?

    EDIT: I'm a few pages too late. Just thinking of practicalities of actually having the doors, not how you'd build them. I'm not the person to advise on that!

    Waterproof socks help to some degree, but if you are out in heavy rain it will run down your legs and pool in the sock, if you go through deep water it will get in the top, if you are out for a long time it'll get in the top. Plus no escape for sweat from your feet means they won't be 100% dry.

    I just accept I'm getting wet if I'm out in the rain.
