NN sorry my post last night was a bit too much "tough love". Things will improve as the mileage creeps up again, and the improvements will arrive more quickly than last time as you didn't shred your base. Have faith.
Fiona well done on the baking and running. Well done to sis too!
A bit achy and stiff after last night, so today's MP run was a bit of a struggle. 1m w/up then 6.7m at what flattened out to be 80%max HR. Only managed 8:19mm average - so probably 30 seconds slower than where I peaked in April - but I was worried it would be worse!
NN I hear you. I'm in the same bin. Stop focussing on where you were, and get back to piling on the easy miles. I didn't run a Spring mara either but my paces per Hr are crap still. Easy. Easy. Easy. Hard. Hadd rules.
Mace - get back to boozing and smoking and she'll quickly change her mind
OH nice piccies !!
Jason nice double yesterday. Fantastic speed session today, and a great day's total.
Stuart well done on the humid run yesterday - the pollen gets to me, too. Nice set of 800s today.
MG I'd agree with IJ (and a few more on here) - LR's are supposed to be slow - say 10% to 20% back from MP...low intensity breeds the physiological changes needed in your slow twitch fibres. You can add a MP finish (e.g. last 5 to 10m) later on in training.
IJ nice running with the intervals.
Fiona good JS run last night (old Vomit !)
Stewart well done on the 5.23m
NP glad to hear you're on the mend. Well done on the 6m.
Steven M wish you well soon
HM good to get another race slotted in
3m recovery this morning, then tonight 1m w/up and 8m with the club on a really hilly route. 12m for the day, all ok
