Well having nearly been taken out from behind by some idiot wearing massive headphones while going through the University I say he should be hung buy the leads.
He ran straight into the back of me, despite me not changing direction or speed and there being plenty of space to my right, as in a whole lane. I have bruises on both calves and it is a miracle I stayed on my feet.
Wish I'd grabbed the headphones off his thick head as I re-passed him at the 10 mile mark.
SuperMoo: that sounds a bit strange - like others said - I would expect the legs to be heavy but feel aerobically OK not the other way round. But hey, you PBd, so mission accomplished, no?
I sort of made this assumption from the section in the book about intervals and there being limit benefit to running them too fast and to run them at 5k pace.
Most of the faster runs in the schedule are around half marathon pace, for the first ten weeks of so of it, so I was not really sure where any extra speed would come from. I suppose I assume that to get fast at HM distance then you have to do training more specific to it.
Certainly i felt stronger in my legs etc, just struggling a bit at the end of air.
Mind you this was only my 4th HM and this schedule is the first schedule I have followed.
