I think it will be ok. Run a long run the day before you go - maybe 15? And then run say 8 miles the day you get back and then a few 4 or 5 milers. One session with strides (to remind your legs how to run fast again). And then maybe a 5 miler with 2 miles at HMP on the Tuesday.
Some great mileage from everyone. And lovely to see Mace feeling ok again.
Nova - Lou and I ski. Well, intermittently. We average once every three years or so! This year skiing will fall during marathon training. But it will be the first week of Lou's taper and about 5 weeks out for me. I'm planning to do a 20 the day before we leave and the day I get back. I'm NOT planning to run whilst I'm away. My legs will be tired enough. And the hills would be hardcore. Plus snow and ice. And in my experience of marathon training my legs will be ready for a rest from running by that point.
Just ran Parkrun with my little boy. He's extremely muddy and has now gone off to football. He did really well. Around 31 minutes I think, only stopped a couple of times. A bit on the parky side today though....brrrr. Wrap up warm.
Skinny - it said jog 50-90% interval time for recovery. So for the k reps I did 2 minutes. Then for the 800's it made more sense just to jog a lap as. So they were slightly over 2 mins. I know the wrong way round but still within the allowable amount of time!
Hi Nova. I think the most important thing for halves is your long run and then doing a tempo run at half marathon pace - so it's not a shock on the day.
DT - I'll probably be doing that Centurion one in Jan as it's on our Winter Series.
Mace - I forgot to say welcome back! It will al come back quicker than you think, especially as you didn't get fat.
Just a 7m recovery run with the buggy today. I was an idiot and went around the park that is extremely muddy at the moment. Filthy, both me and the buggy! I'm going to jog around parkrun with my boy (aged 7) tomorrow. It'll be his first time! Then we have our club cross country handicap race on Sunday which I'm quite keen not to win as the winners have to organise the following years. Plus I've raced loads lately and have races planned for the next three weekends so I'm going to go round at tempo sort of intensity and might engineer falling over if I look in danger of winning at any point.
