Ikle - you know it makes sense...
Gentle 14 for me after lunch... must control the urge to go off too quick. Will throw in a couple of miles at the end at HM pace to see how it feels.
Still deliberating over an Autumn Marathon... You doing Chester again Scott?
Do we think a majority pace of 8:30 mm is ok or too quick and might accidentally turn into racing? (For tomorrow's half)
sounds fast to me Ickle but I guess I would say that - joking apart its not exactly NOT racing.... depends what you want... back to original question ... scroll back a page or so...
cant believe how quickly the marathon is creeping up oh well.. will run a bit tomorrow but a CUTBACK WEEK .. someo f you wont know what that is .. its when you do LESS MILES after a longer run.... before building up again the following week... bit worried I have done not enough this week.. oh welll .. will be fine, will be fine, I can do it i, I can do it... there you are - some cross training... DONE!!
Fleet Half on 17th.... slotting in 2 quicker miles at the end of today's otherwise casual 14 miler seemed to make sense but my hands were so cold I didn't really enjoy it...
Ikle - 8:30 sounds bang on to me... you should feel pretty good still at the end too
Susan, my cutback weeks start next week as I've altered my routine following two 100mile months. Then after Fleet I've a series of 10k to aim at. Never trained for a 10k so hopefully with a bit of discipline I should see some improvement on my 4 year old PB
Dave - If you fancy it think I may do mablethorpe again. Not sure of the date but flat and fast. Some time in October.
Good luck all Sunday May do 10 but see what the morning brings
Ikle, the double posts happens sometimes if you press back/ refresh in your browser. Just take it steady tomorrow, no heroics and racing or doing 8 min miles from the start!
Susan, You are not alone. I'm on a cut back week too.
Martin, 10 miles so soon after the ultra? Take it easy.
Not on your watch? of course you weren't racing so it doesnt matter..
You can manually add the miles to Garmin Connect if thats why you're bothered.
Anyway, Get to sleep!
Susan... don't worry, I know I'm very lucky to be a man x
