I'm another not on Strava and without a HRM. I am tempted to join Strava now to see if I can spy on the training of the faster guys at my club though.
Bob - Is it worth including extended strides for long distance guys as well? I'm doing normal strides with jog recoveries and 10-15 second hill sprints with walk recoveries at the moment. But should I be mixing this up?
Muddy - I agree with the guy on starva - you need to up your game training wise
McF - you just prompted me to check my easy paces on Macmillan and according to that I run mine right at the slowest end of the spectrum. The fastest end is pretty much MP so I certainly wouldn't be doing that for an easy session.
The recovery run pace's he suggests are actually closer to what I'd call easy.
Glad to hear I'm not the only one that hates waiting for a signal!
Bob - Some nice solid mileage there. I sometimes wonder if I should slow my easy runs down as well. But I guess as long as I'm hitting the mileage I want and aren't tired for quality sessions there's nothing to gain. Or is there any other reason to do it?
10 for me tonight with 7@MP. Pace 6.28 so same as last week. Was probably a bit more blustery tonight mind.
