10k Training: Week 8, Session 1

And now, the final week is here
And so we face the final sessions
Our friends (if we have any left), we say it clear
We state our case, of which we’re certain
We’ve trained, a block that’s full.
We’ve run each and ev’ry highway (mainly A and B roads)
And more, much more than this, we did it the completely non Science based, read a few books, made it up, Simkisssss way.

Regrets, we’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention (again)
We did what we had to do and saw it through with much frustration
Simkiss planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this, we did it the completely non Science based, read a few books, made it up, Simkisssss way.
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When McCarthy bit off more than he could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
He ate everything up and never spat it out
We faced it all and we stood tall (relatively, Simkiss is quites short actually) and did the completely non Science based, read a few books, made it up, Simkisssss way.

We’ve loved (this didn’t make the blog….), we’ve laughed and cried
Our feet kill, McCarthy had an unfair share of losing
And now, as tears subside, we find it all so amusing
To think we did all that
And may we say, not in a shy way, (Parkrun? Shy?)
“Oh, no, oh, no, not us, we did it the completely non Science based, read a few books, made it up, Simkisssss way ”

For what is a man, what has he got?
If he daren’t speak, if positive it is not,
To blog the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels…..
The record shows I took the blows, and did it the MCKEP way!

Both completed the session with mile reps of around 5.01 for Simkiss and 5.05 for McCarthy.
