I just put in my time from the 3k race I did into the RW Calculator and it says:

easy run:11.43 (okay but would prefer 12.00)
tempo run: 9.49 (I think too fast)

VO2 Max: 8.53 ( yes I can't go very far at this pace)

Speed Form: 8.14 (eekk)

Long Run: 11.43 to 13.09 (the right pace for me)

Yasso's: 4.33 (does this mean I can do a 4.33 marathon, I think not!!).

Wonder where RW got their calculations from?

How do you work out your pace when you are actually running?
I haven't done much running this week, mostly due to husband's shifts. His shifts are better this week though so I should be able to get out most days - won't be doing much distance though, probably just 30 - 60 mins.

Looking forward to Paula's marathon tomorrow.

see ya, tiny

tiny toes, basically you just have to go by feel and effort. I have a Garmin 201 which takes the guesswork out of what pace to run. I guess you could measure a route of about 4 miles and aim to finish it in the suggested pace and see how it "feels" and take it from there. Speedwork could be done on a track or treadmill.

EP sounds like you had a good session. You are bound to be feeling a little tired after two fairly hard sessions. I am resting today as I have this 10 mile race tomorrow, so will be an early start.

Hi Jane

Yes, we get plenty of questions about the weather, but not 30 in one day, from one person. We've had a fair few running questions which have been interesting... normally along the lines of should i go for a run tonight or go for a drink!
06/11/2004 at 12:04
3TL and what do advise then re: the run or the drink and of course you can do both. I am fairly good at having a drink or two.

Normally you'd have to text 63336 to get the answer!

But we often say go that rest and relaxation is as important as running - you can always get up in the morning and wipe out that hangover.

But I do have a question - does anyone have a good tried and tested sub 5hr training schedule that they could send to me? I note earlier there may have been some flying around.

ouch EP .... good lesson though!

I am going to try another 3 miles tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed ;-)

(far easier than plodding with your legs crossed)

Just back from a very hard and hilly 10 mile race and managed a PW and finished in 1hr 53 mins and not sure of the seconds as I forgot to stop my watch. Some of the last mile was off-road and fairly muddy which is not what you want when you are tired at the end of a race!!, nearly fell flat on my face a couple of times as I had road shoes on with no grip :))

EP ouch, not a good idea to over do it, maybe a lighter session tomorrow?

Imelda good luck with the 3 miler tomorrow.

Hippo - you wouldn't do it if it wasn't bloody hard!!!

NO WALKING and FINISH are the words to focus on ;)
