VLM in jeopardy
I may have to pull out of this year's VLM as I can't seem to manage the training. About 6 weeks ago I did 15m without too much trouble but since then I have had to abandon 3 runs at about the 13m mark with nothing left in the legs.
Of course it could be age but at 51 I'm not particularly old for a runner and last year I managed several big events quite successfully. The only other change is that I now cycle to work. It's only 3m each way but I'm wondering if my legs just don't get enough chance to recover. I don't think it's a stamina issue.
Can anyone share similar experiences?
What sort of pace are you running at? What time are you targeting?
It may be that you are simply trying to go too fast
