Good afternoon LG. I have a question on pacing please.
Am i still doing my easy runs at 6.30 pace and my LSR at 7.30 pace?
I was thinking of maybe trying the shorter LSR (ie 20km) at marathon pace, which I think to get sub 5hrs would be as per the GNR being 7.00.
What are your thoughts on this or do i stick to the pacing plan?
Listen to this hahahaha. I have joined a facebook Altrincham Runners group, and they want me to lead some of their runs. Does that make me an official runner and not a beginner hehe. I have said i will run a 20km one this week to tie in with my runs but anything where it is very specific, ie the longer run/walk ones i want to go on my own. My plan is for me and i dont want any outside influences to ruin that.
I feel so inferior to you guys. All this talk of sub 4 hours and i am on for hoping sub 5hr and not to get swept up lol.
Even with my limited knowledge I think Zonda your plan is light on those long runs. I would have expected that you would have maybe 3 x 20m+ in the plan with other runs up to around 10m to 12m and maybe one at 8m with increasing speeds for the shorter runs.
11 weeks to go on Sunday and i am getting very nervous now but so excited. It would seem that even you more experienced runners that you often seem to walk some of the race in the later stages. I am hoping to run all the way round but not sure if that will be possible yet.
The good thing is everyone posting on here is very focused and i expect everyone will get better or at least very close to their desired time.
I just hope to get a fit female masseur at the end to rub my legs.
