Hiya Emz- sorry to hear about the medical woes what - easy lunchtime, beginners coaching tonight why - another day last rest - weeks last hard - yesterday: double with 5.8mi steady at lunchtime, 6mi tempo with the club including 6x100 fast strides lyric - think so
LmH - missed out a word , should've said 'close' to 5hrs/day! I would say however that 21 miles at 7:41 pace isn't slow, that's about 3h20 mara pace. Would you do them that 'slow' back to back? Is it easy for you to reach hillier/tougher terrain? 30 miles in the hills can easily be 4hrs+ Debrief was what we would alter, and we knew already a few things that we couldn't change last minute owing to logistics. There were some minor issues that were raised but the fact that we have - so far - got 100% approval on the ratings is very pleasing. We also have permission to use the land next year so will probably increase numbers from 500 to 6-700 across both half & full. Will need to think about aid stations & marshals though. With a lot of it on trail, there is a lot of water to move about.
LmH- I think 10 hours over two days is possible in training, but it's doing it several times in a training bloc that I'd struggle to maintain. But given the frequecncy of your long runs I'm sure you'll be fine. Slow 25-30 milers back to back aren't much more than you could manage at present & that puts you on the 5hrs/day. 100k is very do-able though, especially with your distance and mileage background.
what - easy lunchtime, club tonight why - colleagues at work want to get out/ routine last rest - yesterday was again very easy (less than 3mi) last hard - Last week
