Txs VT and Dr.Dan and yup, 9 seconds is still a PB and probably have been gutted if it was 9 seconds slower
Sounds like a decent plan Dr.D, not your typical taper but guess the build up hasn't been typical either.
Good luck in the 10k VT, whats your goal time?
Managed 30 mins easy today, day #1 of my time based HR running, have decided to ditch pace on my watch and just monitor the current HR trying to get it lower on hills and ignore pace in the knowledge (nay hope) that over the next 2-3 months things will improve.
I'll also start subLT work but not for the next few weeks and will build up (very) gradually.
Squeezed, congratulations of the 5k and 33 minutes isn't bad at all in my book!
Tricia, you'll never see me running 40 miles - 26.2 is most definitely my limit - kudos to you!
Thanks for the Talisker Steph! Part of me feels bad for taking it off you after your 50 miles the week before but part of me thinks I sweated for it so took it
Am up for next years challenge where all bets are off if the winner doesn't go sub 4:30. Plenty of time to prepare - 5 months base training for me with some subLT work - need to improve my stamina for the last 13.1 miles lol
