Glad to see you still here too. I intend to follow the P&D plan with more rigour and not skip the speed sessions for long runs! aka Steele style
Just under 15 miles from two runs. Felt safer to be running than cycling in the wind up here!
One other small snippet is that I am in the process of setting up a running club for Washington Tyne and Wear. Washington Club had several pre 80 minute HM runners in the 80s. But club fell apart in late 80s early 90s.
Easy 7 miles into work this morning. I am going to follow P&D training plan for 55 to 70 miles. Tried the higher mileage one a couple of year ago and could not find the time to do the mileage and so also starting missing some key sessions.
I have run two sub 3 before. But had a year of racing marathons last year. Got my HM much closer to sub 80. I had a year off after having a real Turd of Damocles at the end 2013. Was gunning for a sub 02:50 at a local race in horrific weather and was winning with 0.25 miles to go and was on target. My legs went and first aid militia got involved and the next thing I know I am getting carted off to hospital. Long story short doctor confirmed I was just fine! That running a marathon flat out does look very much like a heart attack!
I am rejoining the train so to speak as I am bit of a long distance trail running hippy at heart. Marathons are what I use to stop getting too slow.
