Im not actually after advice or some clever 'this is part of my training program, which should I put more emphasis on'.

This is just a straight 'Im putting this to the public vote.'

Votes must be entered before 5pm to count.

Who cares ?

How long is the long run?
What is the speed / distance of the tempo run?
25/02/2013 at 13:39

long run is 10 miles ...... tempo run would be about 7 miles at around 7.5 miles per hour.

10 mile run with 5 miles tempo in the middle

Tempo run please, so you can return to us all the more quickly.

7.5 mph, what's that in minutes per mile? I thought you were a proper runner.

I'd vote for tempo but you should also do a mile warm up and cool down as well.

millsy.........david isn't stupid....he would do a tempo run without a warm up and cool down...........so it looks like his tempo run would be tougher than his long run which isn't very long is it....good job he's not doing the FLM or he would be in big trouble

If I was doing the FLM/VLM I would be further along, but as I didnt have that as an incentive, Ive been going along at a slower pace

 

Besides any idiot can get around a marathon course, its only about the time that would be an issue. If you said to me tomorrow, go out and cover 26.2 miles, I could definitely do it ...... 

but the part you said about me not bothering with a warm up/cool down is spot on LOL. It would detract from the overall time I was doing and wouldnt make me look as cool to the person on the treadmill next to me (too cold outside for me to be doing long runs out there, I prefer the warmth and comfort that LA fitness provide.)

If god had wanted us to always run outside he wouldnt have invented treadmills.

so it doesn't matter which ever run you do.its not a proper run as the treadmill motor is doing the work for you........never mind..........

i didn't realise you were a treadmill runner...............there should be no problem with you doing a marathon in london on 21sdt april.......most of the gyms should be empty and you can just do your 26.2 miles on the treadmill and you can say you did the london marathon....sorted

"look cool on a treadmill" is an oxymoron

You clearly havent seen me with my Adidas headband, dayglo jacket and the tracksuit bottoms that have 'Pain is just weakness leaving your body' written across the top of it.

Tempo run on trail. Treadmill miles don't count.

Tell that to the fabulous Brownlee Brothers ...... they have their own underwater treadmill thingy.

I'm not ashamed to be doing my tempo run on a treadmill today. I'll vote you do the tempo. Why am I doing it on a treadmill? It's dark and I want something soft to run fast on.

Loved to see RW posters with the 'how big is yours' responses. You didn't even have to try this time DF3
