Well today was supposed to be a training day with Pat Carroll's group. Last night I got all my gear ready as usual, set the alarm for 4:20 am and was looking forward to another torturous speed session. The alarm worked fine, I woke, turned it off, and I swear I only shut my eyes for two seconds but the clock said it was 40 minutes. I didn,t even have time to drive to the railway station let alone shave and dress. I know it's a shocking excuse.
Now I know I could have done the speed training on my own from home, BUT, as I set out slowly I realised that after my big effort on Sunday (10K PB) I really wasn't up to any speeding.
Instead I did an easy 8K which took me 40 minutes.
With the 3 day 500K Relay looming (Fri 19 to Sun 21 Nov) I need to conserve some energy anyway.
