Eating humble pie

The other day, my training plan called for 800m reps at paces that were categorically unachievable.

I annotated it with a scathing note telling my coach, James,  in no uncertain terms that he was a fool and that those paces were not going to happen in a million years.

Then I ran the session, nailing all but the final ‘faster than ludicrously fast’ rep.

I shuffled my feet, ate a large helping of humble pie and annotated my annotation.

Memo to self: James is usually right.
