Marrows - Last year I PB'd by almost thirty minutes (4:38 to 4:09)
Wensty (see what I did there? ) - the only time daytime TV is remotely worth watching is every two years (Olympics / European Cup / World Cup). Any other time I'd sooner slit my wrists. Good 20m run there, hopefully you're getting over the cold.
Rachel - well done on the parkrun PB.
15W - you will win! As long as nobody else is wearing Boosts, obviously. I know this for a fact, because I never win and I don't wear Boosts. Pure logic
Hi peeps, been a bit busy this week with study and job searching, hence the lack of posts.
After Silverstone I have done 8m GA on Tuesday, 9m recovery on Wednesday and 12m MLR this morning. Going well so far, though I reserve judgement until after the upcoming 18/14 MPR.
Since the wife arrived back home a few weeks ago, I've been able to look for work. I had my first interview on Thursday and am happy to say I received the offer of the job later that day! Things are on the up at last! I've accepted, subject to seeing the written contract, and will start on Tuesday. Good job there aren't too many more midweek long runs left in this marathon campaign
You've lost your boobs too, Marrows? I am not doing that session, btw, because I just raced a half.
I thought a long race like your half or my 20 would take the place of this weekend's 18 with 14 at MP, so I'd replace the 18 with 14 at MP with a long slow run and keep the VO2 sessions..
Yeah, but running 14 at MP is hard work, but not as hard as flat-out racing a half marathon or a 20-miler. So you need more recovery. I'm not doing the session at all because I am racing inter-counties XC on Saturday. But if I were you and determined to keep the VO2 reps, I'd at least move them to later in the week, e.g. Friday.
Lit - I have ditched the VO2max session (replaced with an 8m GA this morning), since it is too soon after racing the half marathon. Do you think I should have recovered enough for the 18/14MPR? (Hopefully yes, because it could be problematic to reschedule).
LadyFunRun - great run! It all seems to be coming together for you at just the right time.
