Dave - yes fairly happy with 10k but felt I could have pushed a little harder. I was hoping for 45 something and was at halfway at 22.59 so in theory it was on. However when we turned to come home we were into a strong headwind and I settled in my head for a 46 and didn't push as hard as I might have.. kind of regret it now as I was close and my second 5k was 23.21 . Looking at the results there were very few with neg splits and most people ran around a min slower in the second 5k. This would explain why I seemed to pass quite a few in the last few k. I didn't even bother looking at my watch in the last 2k - first I looked at it was to stop it as I crossed the line!Will - my garmin said 7.23 pace but it measured the course as "over distance" @ 6.27 miles instead of 6.21 miles so my true pace would have been a few seconds slower than this. My Marathon (Limerick) is a week on Sunday (5th May)!
Will - how are your legs feeling today ?
Will - I am doing the Bupa 10k in London on May 27th. About to embark on some serious training for this. I will probably do another 10k in July, doing the Rotyal Parks HM in October and also doing Dublin marathon at the end of October. I might add something in August just to keep me ticking over.
I have posted an outline of my proposed training plan over on the other thread if you want to have a looksee.
Trust that the legs are working a little better today.
Carters thread. We are compiling a list of races for the rest of this year as well just to add to the fun.
AN impressive line up Carl!!
So ... who's up this weekend? Am I correct in thinking Dd is running Manchester on Sunday?
Hill session for me tonight - 4 miles in total.
Have a good one Dd. Feeling confident?
Excited for your Dd!!! I'm trying not to dwell too much on the fact that I should have been running too Doing pretty well getting out for regular runs though- another 4 miles at 6 am today and derm. appointment in 2 weeks
Dd - well done for holding it together with all that working away. We will all be rooting for you come Sunday. Enjoy and good luck.
Rachel - I have never been able to do this 6am running thing. Well done you for getting the miles in. Hopefully everything will come togetehr the way you want over the next few weeks.
6.65 mile tempo run from me tonight with 3 miles at 7:15 pace in the middle. This was tough but I guess it was always going to be what with the taper madness before paris, and still recovering from the marathon itself. It was great to go out running after work in daylight !!
Dd - all very exciting! Remind us again what your target finish is?Rachel - early running this morning! I am the opposite -Did my last long run of the taper this evening.Tonights 10ml run was a great confidence booster - was supposed to be at MP and that translated to 8.21 avg pace and was very comfortable. Felt just like a LSR in fact & chatted to my running bud the whole way round. Effects of the taper kicking in maybe?
