All good then Carl - sounds like things are going well for you I remember doing my 20 milers too fast at MP before and can vividly remember struggling to untie my shoelaces & climb the stairs straight after the run! So if your legs feel just a little heavy with quick recovery that sounds v positive!This has been my first recovery week so only a 10/11 miler tomorrow - next sunday a 16 miler followed by a 17 the sunday after.
11 miler done - first 8 @ 9.30 pace , last 3 @ 8.30 pace to liven things up a bit
Avg pace for the run 9.10
Thats my 3rd week done
A busy afternoon (and evening) means I won't get the 3 mile recovery run in today. I'm guessing that won't cause too much trouble?
Sounds like some fantastic running going on! I did 10 miles on the treadmill in 1.41, very dull but brilliant for techniques on concentration etc. It felt really comfortable, just waiting for the long run to go up in the next few weeks and see how it goes!
Rachel, I don't think missing a 3 mile recovery run is going to wreck your marathon plans.
Will, you may be right about dehydration, I have the same problem if I haven't drunk enough before a run.
Rachel - what is the weather doing for you. Will you be able to get out this week ?
it looks and feels as if it is going to freeze here tonight and with plenty of compacted snow and slush about it could make running tomorrow a tad tricky. Only glimmer of hope is that I am not planning to go until the evening. The downside will be that it will be harder to see the ice. I am hoping to get a tempo session in at the same speed and duration as last week as this is a recovery week for me.
Hi Carl, I'm planning an evening treadmill run, better safe than sorry as far as I'm concerned! I think the weather is going to warm up in the not too distant future, so I can probably survive the treadmill for another couple of days!! Take care if you brave the outdoors!!
I did 12 miles last night, slower than my 10 miles last week but it was half on the road, half on the path which was covered in snow and sometimes ice. I feel as though I've done about 15 miles and it was so much harder than my 10 last week (practically the same route).
Am I to assume that this is to be expected?
