I'am currently following a RW half marathon running plan (sub 1:25) and was wondering if someone could answer a question?
Running the miles doesn't seem to be a problem but sticking to some of the repeats do.
On different runs i can manage some repeats but not all. eg- 6/7miles inc 4x5mins fast 4x5mins slow
Does anyone else experience this?
You're probably running your repeats a bit too fast. You need to pace them so you finish the last one at about the same pace, or faster, than the others. If you put a recent race time in here http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/index.php/calcUsage/calculate
then it will tell you what paces you should be running for which sessions. Is this your first Half? 1.25 is a fairly ambitious target for a first timer if so. How are you coping with the mileage?
Sorry about the delayed reply guys. I have been away recently and not had chance to post back until now.
I really appreciate the feed back about the interval running and im going to look at the Mcmillan site for paces.
I have ran a few half marathons already with my 1st outing timed at 1:32.48 and my current best being 1:27.58 with this advise i will hopefully crack 1:25?
