Well done with your race Jane. I've never done a 3k race - I did a 5k on new year's day in Canada last year - glorious sunshine but freezing cold, icy road and a hangover!

Congrats on the time Jane and good luck with the club run Pixel.

I'm out of action with a head cold :-( Combination of stress and speed training in the rain I think.

3k eek, I only did my first 5 mile race this year and that was only to run with my group. Fantastic Jane.

3.3 miles and 37 mins pain free ....


same happened last time and it was short lived so I am going to sit tomorrow out and try again Sunday or even Monday and hope that I get day 2 of 100%

Doctors referral on Thursday and its kinda like having the car make a funny noise and you get to the garage ..... no noise!!

Imelda hope the docs have good news for you.

3ks are so hard, now I have a time to beat in my next 3k race in December. I expected to be last today and wasn't and was running for the finish with another girl which was great. Just wish my breathing would let me go faster or I could go faster for longer.

Jane have you tried the power breathe? Lloyds chemist sell them now and I have heard good things about them
05/11/2004 at 20:40
Imelda, what does power breath do?

Basically I like to run in my comfort zone and getting out of breath and not being able to talk is no fun, but I am always glad I have tried my hardest and disappointed when I haven't. It is so hard to judge the correct pace for a short race.

I am not 100% sure but I think it is a tool to strengthen your lungs ... you use it 50 times a day or morning et.c and looks poss a bit like a peakflow monitor, but I think it is designed for lung efficiency and for £9.99 may be worth a try??

Thanks Imelda, may have a look at them when I go into town.

Just having a look at the pace calculator and thought I would work back from a predicted time (hopefully) for a marathon ....
for 4.45 marathon .... (15 mins leeway)

easy training pace 12.04
tempo run 10.08
VO2 max 9.10
speed form 8.29
long run 12.04

would this work backwards if training was aimed at these paces??

that's my aim too!
We have what 5 weeks to get to these paces comfortably before you start a 16 weeks plan

Morning all,

Am going to quietly join this group on a Saturday morning. Having done one marathon at 5:36 my aim is to run London in sub-5.

Started training last week with three not-to-painful runs of 2, 4, 3 miles as a gentle warm up. Don't care about pace at the moment as it will take me a month to really get into the running groove again, but this morning I'm setting myself the task of developing a running schedule as well as trying to sell a story to the Monday papers!
