Lots of good debate and even some running on here
16m for me today- easy pace (pMP+75 to +90). Really pleased as pace is around 30-40 secs faster than same effort was a few months ago 52 secs between 5k and mara PBs for me Not sure whether that's good, or I need to sort my 5k time out- LOL!
Jason: my 5k to mara pb pace spread is 327 secs. Getting it down to 252, compared to your 52, now sounds like a walk in the park....FML
Mon: good weekend! Where was the xc race?
Xmas is cancelled in Spoons's house wrote (see) Personally I like mile reps in marathon / ultra training. I agree with NP though
36 miles this week over 4 runs. 13.1 today in 2hr 17 mins, cut 2 minutes off last Sundays time. Was cold and snowy under foot so fairly pleased with that. I am similar to Loulabell, not really doing the speed work as it zaps my energy but am finding I am getting slightly quicker... Still worried about how to increase my miles as last 2 weeks my legs are dead by around the 12 mile marker. Will it get easier or have i bitten off more than I can chew?
Gobi - bet that hurt!!
Highest mileage week ever, all of 31 miles (31.85, actually). Including 14 miles, longest single run, which felt fandabbydozie! I'm liking this training lark
Someone remind me of that in January when it's cold, wet and miserable and I'm hating every mile I run.
6.19 slow miles for me today, HR <70%. Longest I've been in a year, so and no post-run probs so even more .
Interesting debate on speed work, I used to do either reps of (usually around) 10mins off 2 mins recovery or reps of 1m off 2 mins recovery. I understand the benefit of speedwork, but could never see the point of very short intervals even though many books / programmes recommend 400m etc - but happy to put straight if I've got that wrong.
I generally ran LSRs as LSRs, but would sometimes break them up to include some faster sessions.
At the moment, I'm doing everything <70% until I've rebuilt the base.

Loula - mile reps - run a mile at around 10km pace. Have 2 minutes rest. Repeat. Start at around 3 reps and gradually build up to 6.
