when you reduce weekly mileage you still have all the other miles in your legs. How a person performs in any given race is not just due to what they've done in the weeks leading up to it, but also the months and years beforehand.
Increased mileage is generally a good thing, but accumulated mileage also counts.
just to update...sneaked my 10k down on a very undulating course down to 37:26, afetr getting 5k down to 17:37 on tuesday, 2 pbs in one week for first time ever!
Macmillan calculator reckons a 36:36 10k can be possible off 17:37 5k so we'll see with a flat 10k soon hopefully!
Keep it going Stevie G mate, your improving quickly!
Check out my 10k thread, could do with some wise advice from you oh wise one
wise one is very generous indeed.
just curling out the mileage is bringing times down. With an actual coach telling me how stupidly i'm training could be much quicker results!
did another 5k on tue and down to 17:23 now...so it's going the right direction
macmillan reckons that could give a 36:09 10k...so i best be looking for a flat course methinks!
just to update...now down to 1hr 19m 21s half marathon.
and on a rubbish course a 37:03 10k.
The half suggests well under 37:03 is possible...so lets hope so...soon!
An old favourite thread returns.
Well done on your pbs StevieG.
Might as well wheel this thread out!
10k down to 36:44 (from 37:03)
5m today down to 28:54 (from 29:36)
Hopefully can keep the chunks coming off!
