You've done a 16, and now some efforts, so sounds like the Phil-machine is back a rolling.
Not posted for a few days, as wifi dodgy in the holiday place.
Glad to hear you are all ok Matt. Always a bit of a shock that sort of thing.
Lots of coastal running f
or me, with some very dicey cliff top slippery mud sheenanigans thrown in for good measure-I came very close to my last ever slide on Sunday some 200ft up a Purbeck cliff!!! Nev
er mind 9 min miling Sg, on my 8.5 and 6.2 Sun and Mon I struggled to hit 10!
Intervals this morning, on a slightly soggy, slightly hilly golf course. 4 x 1k, so similar to your session Philip. Came out 3.39, 3.39, 3.44, 3.45 so not fast, but about the right effort level anyway
wifi just went!
Anyway, just heading out for 6M in the evening sunshine. Lots of lovely hills along the coast path again, but hopefully the mud will have dried out a bit...
Nice sess SG, strange to see MP mixed with some 1500 pace efforts.
I did 8 x 1KM @ 10K off 90 seconds. Track was a mess and had to rush my warm up as the track needed to be locked and shut by 4:30. So didn'y do the usual dynamic drills and strides (this will explain the bad first rep). 3:36 is the target pace.
3:41, 3:36, 3:33, 3:31, 3:29, 3:32, 3:31, 3:25. Average of 3:32 (or 3:31 if you take out the first stinker!). In two weeks we do that with only a minute recovery, but at least I'll be in a group then.
Rest of the week... recovery 4 tomorrow, day off, recovery 3/strides, RACE.
good news Matt. glad to hear it.
monster sessions from everyone today it seems. "Track Tuesdays" are go! As soon as I get out this office got my 2nd run of the day and some mixed threshold to 5k intervals - 60 mins inc 6,5,4,3,2,1 off 90 sec jog.
Day of the 1000m reps. Not quite as catchy as jackal though.

The 3/4 mile had 90 secs rec then 3 x 1/2 mile had 60 seconds recovery. Missed the run yesterday so did a slow 4 early this morning. Pace came out at 5.21- 5.12- 5.13- 5.13- 5-11 for the 3/4 mile then 5.03- 4.59- 5.14 for the 1/2 mile.
mattl, took me a few readings to understand that as most people use time rather than pace for reps so your 3/4 miles (1,200m give or take not too much) at 5:20 pace are actually 3/4 mile in 4:00 or 80 seconds a 400m lap and the 1/2 miles at 5:00 pace are actually 1/2 mile in 2:30 or 75 seconds a 400m lap.
Yes Matt, do it Phil's way in future please son. If we can't understand the session, how are we meant to tell you it's too fast
Day off today, so of to Marlow for a nice 10mile slow run. Hopefully the route isn't flooded and then it'll be a nice scenic little run. Is good to be able to do the medium long run with no time pressures in the day for once!

It's such a difference isn't it? Just being able to pick a nice place to run in the daylight makes a 10 miler all the easier. I'm off out in a bit for a 4-6 miler, not really sure how far to go, rest day tomorrow. I expect to feel a bit rough after yesterdays 1 hour massage and 8 x 1KM session.
Matt, despite getting slightly lost in translation, great session. 1200's in under 4 min's is going some, that's my 3K pace I'm like you, if I'm doing timed intervals I use average pace per rep, and time when doing distance reps.
good run, perhaps unsurprisingly bits were muddy as anything, but this time I at least didn't take a face first spill into it!
Did look a treat when I collected some trainers at the running shop right at the end though!
Stevie, did think on the run that if you're comfy doing 3.32/3,33 1k reps, and as many as 8 you'll be well away to reduce that 1min gap I currently enjoy
We'll see! Trafford, believe it or not is flatter than Leeds! Only 18 meters up! I'm looking to only go under 36 again, no heroics yet! But if I go under 36 then it'll be touch and go a PB with 35:51 to beat. I'm fitter that's for sure.
Entered a 5 mile race on the 31st of March. Nice end to the longer rep/races period to lead into the track/5K season.
Looking at my 10ks, since October 2010 I went like this...
I just like to reminisce and look back, but that also just shows you that you need that fitness but also the luck to have the right situation on the day.
Ignoring the 2 Wycombe 10ks, I was in pb shape for the other 7. 4 came out pbs, 3 the weather hindered me. Probably not too bad a record really.
hi, does everyone here follow the same training plan? Seems a motivational thread!
Hi Phil AB, thought you were our resident Phil popping up with a new name.
Answer is no...I follow the big coach man Moraghan's plan to the letter, the original point of the thread, being to improve someone who'd run for years but through doing whatever he liked. The rest of the chaps fuse a mixture of running club weekly sessions with their own choices based on time available and just enjoyment!
hi Stevie, no although Phil A B is not a great name and will have to decide on something better (that others havent taken first!).
I have yet to run a sub 40 10k (40.11) although have it in my legs just didnt race in a while. Track yesterday: 5 * 1500 10k pace (last 300 fast), 400m jog recovery and my times averaged 5:40mm. Race is 3rd March!
Hi Phil! I came to this thread having never ran sub 40 Phil, now I've got a 35:51 PB. So get stuck in on here, try some new sessions out and see what works for you.
I've penciled in a 10k early May, but not sure if I'll be in 'track mode' by then.
A nice 6.75 miles with strides in 7:10avg. Legs felt great, now for a rest day. Thena cheeky 4 with strides on Friday. Really looking forward to putting myself through the mill again!
what Stevie see said.
Joining you for a T OFF tomorrow. Is richly timed as my body is revealing to me that 1500 pace with MP yesterday, and a largely offroad 10&4 today needs a break.
The 4 just then was one of the rare runs where I started craving what to eat tonight...pasta, beans and bread sound good.
SG, what do you have listed for Sunday? I could do with a 12 at 7:30 pace.
