Happy New Year everyone!
Just clearing some lurgy from the system ... will be back to it shortly.
Targets ... 2013 miles in 2013. If I can do that, then the rest should take care of itself (i.e seeing 11st XXlb on the scales again ... and getting PBs at everything from1M to marathon).
As you were.

Keir, I would call it controlled effort. Chickadee, I tried the 200/200m thing and I found out that I could not keep changing my pace, really wierd I gave up after 5 mins.

200m is really short, I can imagine it must be very difficult to change pace constantly. I'm really shite at judging my pace anyway and often the Garmin needs 100 or 150m to settle and show what pace one is really going at...Brian: haha, I have no natural talent either. You've done rather well with no talent. Let's see where I get to at 50 BD: hope your achilles sorts itself out quickly. My left hip is playing up again . I reckon I've been doing too many miles lately (61 last week), so will back off this week. 5 easy ones today and it feels ok-ish. But yesterday after my 12 miler I was in pain all afternoon.
Chick and BD, hope the injuries sort out with a little rest. I have found it interesting to see how one foot, and other parts of my body become sore running on the uneven snow-packed, icy terrain. Went to the primary Dr today and from a prelim exam I seem to be OK, but have to get a colonoscopy for piece of mind. Hopefully much ado about nothing.
So far have only run 1 day this week, but plan to rally Friday-Sunday. I can't believe the guilt I feel over not running each day (but I'm working my tail off at my real job so it all works out).
Mace, I think you and I are just about spot on for racing abilities. I've only run a pair of 5Ks and one marathon, so the next few years should be interesting to see whether my engine is fully built or has some room for upgrade. I agree Brian that consistency is my key. I've never had more than 6 months of consecutive training before injury.
Oh yeah, it was -12 F here today. On Tuesday I ran in 11 F weather in a 20 mph wind. The long hot shower was goooooood.
I've been reading quite a bit on this topic... but can't stomach reading through 2000+ posts on this thread! Would someone be kind enough to comment on my understanding of the HADD concept.
From reading.. I think that they key to good long distance running is
If you can read those carefully, and tell me if you think I've correctly grasped it, I'd be really grateful Especially the 4th bullet point.
If anyone cares to expand on these, or add to them, that would be great.
Run Wales, welcome to the Church of Hadd.
I can't argue against any of your 4 points.
DrDan, theres been a lot of lurgy about, hope you are feeling better soon. Good target for 2013 - are you still up for BM?
chick, I guess the 200/200 session is aimed at changing gear. As mere mortal distance runners, we tend not to work on a kick.
No talent = work harder! Hope the hip is feeling better?
Andy, you don't believe in talent? You know of coro on the sub-3 thread?
mace, good on you publicising your targets. That's a big chunk to knock off the HM, good luck with all of them. Run the run.....
VT, did you say minus 12 fahrenheit? Thats -20C!!!!!!! I've run in -6C but I think thats the coldest. Good luck with the test results, as you say I'm sure it will be nothing.
SC, good work warming up before your group run.

Yep, I'll be there ... not expecting anything fast though!
DrDan, must admit it's come around quickly, probably too quickly for me too. See you there. Anyone else doing BM?
Brian I tend not to run on comparable ground tho. I like to try different routes all of the time.
fair dos spen. Just thought it would be useful seeing how low you could keep it.
Run Wales - welcome ... pretty good summary of HADD
Brian, I'm basing my targets on my recent 10M time. I ran the half in September and have built mileage and improved since then. Also the half was my first race and my HR went through the roof so i bottled it as i was fairly confident of something close to 1:40 at the time.
Mace - I never watch the HR during a race...... I sometimes wear the gear but turn off the reading for HR.... I run faster that way

Chick, that does seem a lot of miles considering it doesn't seem that long ago you were recovering from a mara in which you pb'd !? Hope easing off will do the trick.
Marathon was on October 7, so quite a while ago. I'm base building right now and will start with proper marathon training on Jan. 14. That 61 mile week was a bit of an accident as I missed my long run the week before due to icy rain and conditions too horrid even for Yaktrax... so I basically did 2 longish runs in 7 days Hiya RunWales VT: good luck with the colonoscopy. Boy, -12F is mighty cold
VT - blimey that's cold, i bet that shower was bliss The doc thing is to do with the blood ? Are you still getting it ? I've experienced similar in the past ( not often though, and very slight ) and i'd say if it's not a regular thing you don't have a problem. I've not researched it though ..... it's never bothered me enough to.
AGF - it was my first race so used it as a comfort dummy My HR went mental so i panicked a bit and took it easy but had a great race as from halfway nobody went past me and i ran a 3min neg split ( 55 + 52 )
A grew a pair for my next race and ran to target pace
Chick - Oct 7th ?? Blimey, time flies when you're 'hadding' fun
ps. hope your pace has lost it's shitness now
Another week done and dusted and a distance pb to boot, 48.4 miles @145(76%), have a good weekend guys and gals
Fine mileage Stewart, a few weeks of that and i'd expect to see a nice WOW moment to reward you for your dedication.
