Like CW I'm feeling niggly after last night's run which was a 15M MLR. The good news is that it was 8s/mi faster than the equivalent run last week and felt comfortable. Today's 6M recovery was a slog though!
I do look at my cadence now and again and it seems to be fairly consistently related to speed, no matter how I'm feeling. It goes from 160 at easy 8min/mi pace, reaches 170 at around 7:20 pace and 180 around 6:20 pace. I've seen it a bit above 180 in 5K races. Anyway I don't plan to change anything.
Hello all. It's been a week so apologies for the skim-read.
SL - 96M is an impressive week!
Al_P - I also did some coast path running when on holiday in Cornwall last month. Fun, isn't it?!?
TT - I'm really enjoying your reports and beginning to get an inkling of just how incredible it must be to be out there.
Matt3 - good lord - sub-2:40 in a training run?!?
Simon - excellent 23-miler in a decent time as well.
PP - That's some week with the win and 100+ miles.
A bit of a mixed bag for me last week. Decent 11M with 5M at threshold pace on Tuesday, fast bits coming out around 6:16 to 6:20. Decent enough 15 MLR on Wednesday - 7:36 pace out, 7:12 pace back. Felt pretty jaded after that though, and following Thursday's slow recovery, could only manage 7:50 out 7:30 back for Friday's 12M MLR. Decided not to try and push it, figuring I'd be better saving the effort for Sunday. Duly did so and managed a 20-miler paced at 7:36 out and 7:08 back, 2:27 overall time. Nice to end the week on the right note!
