will you do the intervals on a tready?
I worked out what the tready speed is if you need it

the intervals are 2.35 (ish) mins per 400meters

dont forget people
the long endurance runs are the most important

yes but it's also important to keep the legs turning over and not getting stuck plodding.
this is a mistake that I have fallen into
my woman's club captain is a trained PT and has been running for 24 yrs, she says I'll get to 5hrs, i hope she is right!

Hi folks, back from a very cold and damp Amsterdam Half Marathon. First ever race abroad. Anyway I am getting slightly faster as the halfs pile up but not yet back to pre-injury pace. Managed 2.28 which is 5 mins faster than previous half.

Definetly up for celebrating for just finishing the marathon but the bubbly is one me if I break the 5 hour mark.

Well done Jane - what was the race like? I assume it was flat???? How was the atmosphere etc?
18/10/2004 at 08:43
MM it was a flat course with one or two or three small rises as you went on bridges over canals. It was a good atmosphere with thousands of runners, there were at least 3 bands playing on route so crowds massed there and there was alot of encouraging shouts if I spoke dutch I would tell you want they said. There were 4 water and energy drinks stops. At the end the marshalls stood around the track and really supported you in the final run around the Olympic stadium, I like running into stadiums. Everyone was friendly and helpful but didn't think much of the toilet provision. It was a cold and damp day and I wish I had taken warmer leggings and running top. Overall Amsterdam is a nice city but a bit touristy.

Well done Jane, that's a big chunk off your PB and will motivate you towards that sub 5 next year.
18/10/2004 at 10:21
I have motivation for a sub 5 too.

Mr Nessie says if I break 5 hours in London or Lochaber, we will go to IOM.
