I was still too under par (I don't mean I was an eagle) to train properly, (in fact on Tuesday I felt so tired I didnt do any run at all), but it felt like a long time since those days of super sessions and successful races.

Tonight I had a good solid rep session in the rain. I ran the 3 mile loop, doing 3minute efforts with 90 sec recoveries, in 16mins 15 secs. Thats 5:25 pace. I was hopeful of going inside 5:15 pace but considering I am still sniffling my way through each day and coughing up stuff that resembles a slug having gone through the pod thingy that Jef Goldblum invented in 'The Fly', perhaps I should be pleased to be anything but dead.
I've just looked up the result from Moorclose 10k and note that yer man Davies ran 35:08. Pleased I didnt go through in that case as 35:07, although my fastest for some years, would have been agonisingly close but ultimately shy of my dream 34min 10k.
