Soups - great session there. Always good to hit a progressive pace. I think beforehand it always sounds daunting, but good when it works . Also brilliant news on NYC.
Malcs - wowsers on those Yassos
Angela - very nice K reps
I hate MLRs - I do them so rarely but once in a while I try, like yesterday....meant to be 12, but only managed 10. It was so windy and I just struggled from the outset. I'd left my Garmin at home so was doing it on feel....and it felt really SLOW!
Anyway, after that I wasn't too hopeful about today's interval session - 4 x 0.5 mile and then 2 x 1 mile all with 0.25 mile recoveries. On the TM. But it went really well! I have a rule about TM intervals that I got from an episode of Marathon Talk - each of the speed reps has to be quicker than the one before. So the key is knowing what pace to do the first one so that you can keep upping the pace all the way through and still finish strongly. My paces (in min/mile) for each of the reps were 6.39, 6.35, 6.31, 6.22, 6.18 and 6.15 for the last mile. Very happy with that
Nell - well done for running in that wind! I had a shocker yesterday in the wind - meant to do 12, only managed 10 and I hate to think how slow it was (I left the Garmin at home). The wind was just sucking all the energy out of me!
AA - hope your run today goes OK.
Chick - hope the MLR went well.
Minni - nightmare with the ear infection! You are having a run of bad luck. Fab result from Brolish
After yesterday's poor run I wasn't expecting great things from today's intervals - 4 x 0.5 miles and 2 x 1 mile, at increasing pace on the TM. But it went pretty well in the end - paces for each rep were 6.39, 6.35, 6.31, 6.22, 6.18 and then 6.15 for the last mile.
My record of going from a Spring marathon to one in the Autumnn is non-existent - I always seem to pick up a niggle after the spring marathon. But fingers crossed this year will be different. Currently need to get through to VLM and then onwards to Abingdon I hope
