Felt warm already at 6am this morning, but luckily it seems it will get cooler this week? Certainly everyone everywhere suffered racing yesterday. A nice 10 mile run that incorporated some ups first thing today. I have taken the early morning guys to do some gentle up and downs here several times this year but it is the first time I have done the full Blake Hall inclines x6 in about 3 years? Pace okay but not on the money. Lost focus on the the 5th so did a faster last repeat and averaged ups in 2.45 and 3.05 for downs [should be under 2.30 ups with 3.00 downs]. Still, it should have been half decent given essentially a week off last week.
Now need to concentrate on a little quality work [inclines and tempo runs] over the next couple of weeks to feel comfortable at 7.30 pace for the Kent Marathon.
