Wow chick! I'm pretty sure that is the 1st 7:xx 80% run you've posted? Windy too!! All the ground work paying off for you now. Suck it up.....
chick, no wonder the 3rd 5M nearly killed you! That's one tough motherfu**er!
15M at MP is a tough run in anybody's book. The only time I've tackled anything like that is in a 20M Race. Respect!
Thanks guys. Yep, Brian is right - 8:00 dead was my best pre October marathon but with a bit of HR drift still in it. So, well chuffed with yesterday's sesh. It's hard to describe but I feel I'm so much more in control of my running since I've discovered HADD. I would usually dread the first P&D speed session of the plan but these days I'm pretty confident I can knock it out OK. And the first long run with MP in it should be doable as well.
That won't be 3 x 5 miles though, promise . I think the hardest sesh ever was a Daniels one - 20 miles with 15 continuous MP miles. Ouchy ouch .
Bloody hell Chick!! I'd have to enter a race to do 15 continous miles at MP. I just don't have that drive on a training run.
Superbly un-shit running Chick
Brian & Dr Dan, good stuff and nice that some HADDers have had a meet up.
Brian, are you doing VLM ?
Thanks for the advice (yet again) Brian. I think you are right, too fast on the w/u and also the first mile was too fast.
Great work Chick. Happy days. (BTW - I like the slow and shit comment )
I'm in a better frame of mind after my 60 minute run HR climb a few times above 75% but I got it back down, I'm just going to stick to the 70-75% runs next week and see how things progress
stats for the run
60mins 5:06m @11:50 avgHR 138(78%)
Stew - There is no rush to start on the 80% runs. DO them wehen your ready!
I can't edit the post above it is suposed to read avgHR 138(73%)
JB ... I know already that I'm way off where I'd want to be for a HM race ... but nice to have that confirmed with a bit of pain & stats!! 7:10/m seems like where I might be aiming at BM. Leeds HM is the target in May ... tougher course but I'd reall like to nail it there.
I've entered the Chester full marathon for 6th October.
