Follow the progress of Mustkeeptrying, our sub-5:00 hopeful
Hats off to you MKT. Well done. I've certainly got a lot to learn from you about positive thinking. After limping home last week, that's a great comeback. You mucked my screen up too.
Excellent run and now time to taper - - great report and very pleased you have finished the hard training on such a high note..
Sorry to butt in but I was after some advice please and came to this thread as I am also aimng for about 4.45 in the vlm. I did 20 miles today in 3.47.
Anyway my question is about what distances to do over the next 3 weeks. I originally downloaded the RW garmin sub 5hr schedule, but that schedule appears to have now changed! I am now confused as to what mileage to do. I am currently running 4 times a week and covered 38 miles this week and 40 last week. My old plan had me doing - 5.5,5,9 & 17 next week but the new plan says 6.5,7,4 & 15. I don't know how many miles to cover. Please help!
whoop whoop tim eto taper and we all made it!!!
Flo PO - how you doing?
Might give vebice another thought then
i'm by no means an expert but even pacing is the key I think- last year i started off too ast and paid for it round mile 22 onwards- it was ghastly
I'm going to try and stick with the 5hrs pacer as far as i can hopefully until mile 23ish then see if i can push on........................... famous last words and that........
Having done London last year as my first I just sneaked in at 4.57.....My advice would be to ease in gently at the start and try to hold back a bit so you don't burn out.
My second half was slower so I know what you mean about getting some good time in the bag early but still think it is better to settle in gently and push on later if you can. No point going sub 10mm early then being 12/13 mm later....
VikW not too bad thanks grateful I deferred London this year as would have had to pull out anyway with my injury. Deferred it as a big birhday next year and 2012.....
Did a nice little 5 mile recovery run tonight in the country nice in the light....
