... and I'm very envious of your 10K time! My PB is 40:10.
Perhaps I just need to drink more?
Yes Joe that was shade temp. I'll give you that 1st mile point but it still pretty disturbing data, even with the temp factor. Today was slightly less awful and over a hilly route....
1 - 7:45 HR 131
2 - 8:09 HR 136
3 - 8:05 HR 137
4 - 8:28 HR 136
5 - 8:33 HR 136
6 - 8:45 HR 137
Cop-outYou did get me thinking about this, and for the first time ever I've been weighing myself pre & post run. I'm losing 1-2lb over 5-6 miles in this heat. It doesn't concern me, so I wouldn't worry about it either.The important thing is to start hydrated, and drink consistently afterwards to ensure good recovery for next time (and life in general!)Hadd (ie good base training) is excellent stuff, as Clearly says. Anyone who hasn't done it would benefit from a good cycle of it. I'm not following it at present as my training is currently at the other end of the spectrum, but I shall return to it after my Autumn half marathon before I hit my marathon training programme.
CO, aerobic base training requires the patience of a saint and you'll often feel like you're going backwards for periods of time. It's important to look at the big picture and guage progress over 6 months rather than a month or so.
I'm sure Dan will be happy to give you his progression over the last few months nad from when he started as he's been a perfect example of just how good a runner it can make you.
Ok. Final post before I let this thread die.
Posted because I think it shows some normality in race conditions.
Last night I did the Pewsey midweek 5 miler. Its a road race and hilly/undulating.
