The body has only a passing connection with pace as regards numbers on the watch.

Three variables in running: Intensity, Duration and Recovery. I'm inclined towards letting Phil put some science on to that.

Needless to say, 10 miles running at 8:00 min miling down a flat road isn't the same as the same pace and distance along Chesil beach. Same numbers.

Nor is it the same as running down Chesil Beach in army kit carrying a GPMG: never worked out why I was the lightest person in the company but always got assigned the heaviest kit to carry.

My scientific view is centred round hard day, easy day.

Phil, I'll add an extra easy day or two for myself on that basis. 

Pays to stand back now and again to check on the basics.

Bus, session today, is 3.5mile warm up, 7miles starting at MP ending at 10k.

I'll drop you a mail with further details (they're working again!!)

Ric, definitely. I remember how slow I ran a 50metre stretch once at footy training....i was giving a piggy back toa  15 stone goon though! These days i'd probably struggle to match the pace with a 8 stone girl on my back!

That's just the way your brain has to work if you get to give orders in the army 

SG - that session would be both a bit sharp and a bit long for me at the moment!

something makes me think you'll regret asking SG now Bus... Looks like a tasty session ahead for you!

well my fever has gone (HR and temp back to normal thank God!). Still got a bit of a sore throat but nothing on the chest which is a relief. I'll get out for a 30 min run later and stick some MP in the middle all being well.

Looks like the timing of my Doc appoitnment will put paid to such a cruel punishment...

Take it easy johnas, especially on the MP section, straight after a fever

17/04/2013 at 14:10

aye aye capt'n Bus!

glad you are feeling better johnas.

track last night i went off piste and did some faster pace work in prep for a 3000m on sunday but kept distance longer than 3000.

3*1mile reps ave pace 4.59 but with monster wind blowing me about did first one in 4.56 and second in 5.04 so pacing was hit and miss.  at the end of the 3rd rep i was breathing out my ears. 

I have bought some track spikes for my dabble into 800m this summer, nike zoom victory, they are very light and stripped to the bones. they demand you run fast ...i guess they are designed for teenagers hitting sub 2, not old men.

You don't run like an old man Dean - 5mm pace mile reps, sheesh!!

 I've been accused of being the forum mother before!

First road session for a while today. Went out with no clear idea of what I wanted to do, except get a few faster paced miles in somewhere along the line as I've done no speedwork for 6 weeks! As such, it was an odd session - 8M with the first 5 as progression and 3M steady tagged on the end. Legs were mashed from the off, and the slightest uphills were dire, so obviously still feeling the effects of last week's exertions!  The 5M part came out OKish though (with a bit of help from a well-placed downhill on the 5th mile!) 8:08, 7:47, 6:56, 6:28, 5:52. Last 3 were all slightly uphill averaging 7:40 pace.

Mr T's Sex Giants?

I could probably do this all night, but I shall stop there.

17/04/2013 at 17:54

Many Thais are Sometimes Guys

Right, that was the last one I promise.

17/04/2013 at 18:32

horrible day at work, real stressfest. Didn't eat after 10am, and was lucky to grab a 4miler at lunch.

Evening run was meant to be 3.5m wu, 7miles starting MP ending 10k, but if I'm honest I'm pleased to have got it done at what pretty much comes out a plain 7miles MP.

Did it around town, so you get some undulations, grass and more wind. Clearly wasn't in ideal mode with no food on board, so best I could produce tonight was

5.58,5.57,6.11,6.07,6.12,6.04,6.01

MP range should be 6.00-6.10, so pretty much all within the MP especially with the undulations.

Hamstringy/referred back sciatic nerve type thing meant the top of the right hammy was tightening, but probably just one to write off to energy tonight.

In fairness, I haven't done 7miles at MP since my MP was quickened to this zone, so still a decent workout.

will have a read back later...need to drink, eat and stretch poste haste!
