John - I'll be too slow for you... ran a 9 miler tonight for the purpose of running the middle 7 miles at proposed HM pace of 8 m/mls.Found it a fairly hard effort and now wondering is 1:45 even doable! Maybe just tired legs as I have just done my 3 heaviest training weeks since my return to running (three consecutive 50ml weeks) and had a fairly intense interval/tempo session last night.So Martin looks like I'll be falling off the 1:45 pacer and getting picked up by the 2hr guy as well!
Ricky - HM pace for 7 miles is a hard session for anyone so I wouldn't be too worried about it.
John have a look at past results for people running round 1:40. The advice I have always got is that if you're targetting a time and you know a vet that does that follow them. I say vet as they're more experienced and so consistent.
Sorry John, way too quick for me too. I'll just be hoping to improve on last year's 1.55 at Larne.
For anyone going to the Albertville5 on Saturday, be aware that the race registration has moved to a new location. I happened to look at the flyer otherwise I would have been turning up at the Grove as usual. The start & finish have moved as well.
Paul - what is that new location??
It's a secret, TG
The Portside Inn, Duncrue Road, off the Fortwilliam roundabout - click on the link to the flyer in my last post.
Aha, d'oh. Didn't see the link sneakily put in there!! Cheers
I've my MOT at the same time so can't make it but will pass on to the rest of the guys I train with.
5 Miles done last night another lovely night despite the heavy mist.
HMM they are all doing better than me. I will probably get some of them to go with your pacing group so they don't get carried away and go off too fast.
I am planning on trying 14 on Sunday but I start to struggle once I get to about 8 so will have to wait and see how it goes.
You did look like a man who was doing an interval session HMM...
That was my first one of the year. 8 x 3 minutes at just over 5:30 pace with 90 seconds recovery and I have to say I was busted. MIght slow down next week!
I work at the end of the towpath now so very handy for me and there's plenty about to meet up with for runs.
No HMM - it was Matt who I'm not sure you'd know. Runs for willowfield. Was a flier a few years ago but injuries and sprogs have slowed him down a bit to be as slow as me.
Well done Martin. Is it a GPS watch your looking for.
13 miles done this morning it was tough going but pleasing to be able to pick up the pace over the last couple of miles.
