Do you ever learn Paul?, setting off too fast....I swear your heads full of concrete sometimes!
Forget your mileage, do the 4 quality sessions and 2 threshold sessions in the fortnight......Everything else is easy, you can log the miles or the time, its irrelevant. If you ache 1 day do a 30min easy run, if you feel good another day do a 45min easy run.
Try and get one run in, over the hour, up to 90mins weekly if possible, fortnightly if not.
Oh, and that 1st mile probably cost you 30/60 secs, on your overall time.
Paul doesnt need encouragement,....he needs a kick up the arse!
I'll give you a little encouragement tho Melds! .....and then we can talk about your running!

thats what I like .. a few words of encouragement
know what you mean
Youve lost me Melds.....Have you just made that word up? Its a good one anyway.
*now wheres that dictionary*
How do you accompany a kick up the arse?.....Do you mean with a pat on the back?
I always forget that bit, damn!
A f*cking fortnight...lol
If you can do that lot in a week, you'll be beating Bekele!
Abrasive...moi.....Its like a dagger in the heart!
unlucky Paul though still a good time. Think though to carve over 2minutes off that within 2months to get sub 30 like some guy earlier on this thread said is a bit optimistic. Long term maybe though.
However, the 40-50miles a week is spot on, i've done that for a good few months now. Did a 5k race dressed as santa today..even in that suit and running at what i felt was casual knocked out a 17:32 5k time. And my best time ever was 17;45 before that but generally 18mins but which felt flat out...so thats encourgaing. Only now do i feel in sub 30mins 5miler pace though.
Whens yourr next target?
Start another thread then Paul. Lets see if youve learnt anything freom this one.
To answer Stevie, the only reason I think he could knock off enough time to go under 30mins in 2 months is, simply because he hasn't STARTED to train properly yet, and I think with the proper training, Paul will see sharp improvements.
well done all today, perfect conditions.... I was planning a PB attempt (31:33) held from 3 years ago at Hanney 5, have been doing 35-45m base for the last 10 weeks or so, and that has included 2 PBs at 1/2 mara, a 10m PB and 2 5 k pbs, the 5ks have been used as speed work most weeks.
Was expecting to hit 30:30 31:00 today.... went off very fast and tried to hold it, got in with a group at 2m and stuk with them, ended up doing 5:50, 5:56, 6:08, 5:54 and 5:51 for a 29:42 finish, and very happy.
The moral to the PBs above is the fact that I have been running heavy for 9 and 1/2 years, decided it was time to ditch the rubber ring and changed my diet, 12 weeks later and 2st lighter and so solid base trg and I have PBs at 4 istance and times I never thought possible...
Impossible is Nothing as per the advert....... hope this helps
Well done to all racers again today.
well you can all now have a look to what your PB face is...
