Follow Wardi as he trains for a sub-3:00 marathon
A good session and day's training after the speedwork.
Did you feel comfortable at that pace over the last 3 miles?
Wardi, I know that Granny Denny and I are doing the Kingston run on 30th March and I have a feeling that I've seen Rich mention that on his thread. Are you able to come down for that?
yes I think its Kingston that Daniel wanted everyone down for. I'm sure he'll be in touch about it.
Wardi: your HR zones appear to be very similar to mine. Max recorded in a sprint finish was also 174 I think, but there's a singular spike reading from one race that went to 180. I can only think that was a bit of a misfire. Resting is also about 47.
Regarding your trip to Kingston, I'd check which one they were on about first. There's you thinking about Hull, and they are thinking about Richmond, when actually it's in Jamaica.
Kings cross BR - Victoria line to Vauxhall - South West Trains to Kingston Rail station. 47 minutes shortest expected journey time. Good stuff this interweb.
it would be boring if everyone followed the schedule exactly.
What you have done has worked pretty well before so i don't blame for you for wanting to at least retain part of what has worked before.
The schedule Garmin's recommend looks sound but isn't what I would do myself and I probably also would try and augment it with extra training.
Sometimes difficult to judge a schedule's worth by one run as maybe if you'd even done 100mpw, you may have had a bad run at that Berlin, because of the heat.
Dewsbury 10k won't be a fast time then but the important thing is to come out of with a good even paced run (depending on wind) and feel you would have run a good time if the conditions were better.
just dropped in to wish you the very best in this adventure, haven't been around much, missed the Brass Monkey and I'm on a real downer, struggling with tendonitis at the moment.
Anyway this is about you, keep yourself fit and we're all behind you, you hope! All the best.
Great run Wardi. I agree this was definitely progress
Good, controlled effort in the conditions and shows your speed endurance and pacing are improving.
Well done - it was a hard day for a sub-40. It also takes a strong will to get out and do an 11 later in the day, with the race still in your legs.
[as for the 6:30 alarm call- at that time I was already over an hour into my long run]
