Need all the miles I can get now that my back can no longer tolerate speedwork and tempo runs . I'm used to P&D midweek longish runs and think upgrading a 15 to a 20 will help with endurance and a really good endurance base should give a modicum of speed. That's the plan anyway. We'll see if it works. And of course I'm still dreaming the Comrades dream that will take years of preparation
Nice work on another 20, LMH. I hope to get there in a few weeks' time, I.e. midweek 20 milers. I need to get a whole lot quicker beforehand though to fit them in before work. 17/18 is my limit at my current slow pace.
I have no problem doing the mileage but the pace that comes out is a joke. The sub LT was 8:40 pace ... but I blame the heat. About 4 or 5 weeks ago I was down to 8mm, albeit over a shorter section (6 miles). One day I will wake up to a nice, crisp morning with less than 90% humidity for once and I will be flying yeah, right .......
Run sounds horrid, VT . At least you had a bathroom to go to. I've had to resort to bushes a few times . But awesome pace for the sub LT miles
Just 5 easy miles this morning. My legs felt unbelievably stiff and tired (no surprise).
Crikey, Dr. D !! I live in a very quiet rural area. If something is dead, it's usually roadkill . But I'm careful and conscious all the same. In winter time I tend to run up and down my street, 1.5 miles one way . Very boring, but safe.
Nice going in the heat, btw, Dr. D.
2 productive days for me. Yesterday 11.5 with 10@ sub LT (79%) and then I decided to run into work today, covering another 16.4. Pace is atrocious but like HADD says, your heart has no clue if it's hot and humid out there. So I tried to stick to HR best I could. There was quite some drift on my run into work towards the end but the average stayed at 68%. Recovery run tomorrow!!
