Jantastic, Febulous and Marchvellous
It's ok, and the names Darren,
New page, so I'll repost this
Time to complete (if not already done so) your Marchvellous details.
These include, "How many runs per week", "How far each long run will be each week" and "How fast you predict your DIstance Time will be"
This time is MOST IMPORTANT, You need to judge your current ability spot on. The penalty for being over optimisyic or under achieving is HARSH.
It gets worse The shorter the distance, the more critical this prediction is.
Febulous got me through the door again this evening and I had another good run, feeling reasonably comfortable at a much higher average pace than I've managed since restarting
Was going to aim for a 5k(ish) time for Marchvelous but now I think I might wait to see how I get on with my 'long' 5 miler this week before deciding whether to stick with the 5k or set a 5m target for the end of March
Don't leave it too long Trogs, has to be sorted by Monday
5 miler is planned for Friday morning so ample time to decide before Monday
Also want to test myself properly rather than 'cheat by setting a time I know I can do and running easy to hit it dead on.
It was FF I tells ya
Long run done this morning, week 8 completed
Started to rain half way round turning the surface quite slippy, been a while since running in the wet.
On the good side, pace was good and I'm sure my target for next month is achievable, looking forward to it now.
Me too. Doing my run immediately after a pilates session may not have been the greatest idea I've ever had but, hey, I got it done; just
So, although I'm sure my fitness will continue to improve over the next few weeks as I continue to slowly build milage, I think Marchvelous target is going to be 5k. Just have to decide what time is going to be challenging but achievable.
this has been the hardest week... motivation missing. Might change the plan to an easy week next week..
PSC - the bad times pass. Cut back and recover, then the enthusiasm will return.
Always nice to have a recovery week PSC, reduce your mileage and recharge the batteries.
Not too long, they have to be done by monday
Time to log last weeks run everyone
It's a shame today's half marathon didn't count for the target. I had predicted 1:50:00, and finished it in 1:50:04 (PB by almost 5 minutes ). My new 5k prediction stands as it's in line with today's HM result. It should be challenging for me, but achievable with a fair wind
The bad news is that I only logged four out of my five runs this week, due to an ankle injury picked up early in the week. I couldn't take the chance of scuppering today's race. Sorry all
If I'm reading it right then we are in second place in the medium size groups
