I've never run the specific 'runners' distances. Garmin Connect has estimated times for various distances but I've never set out to run them. Yesterday I did 2 laps of Regents Park for a total distance of 5.5 miles. If I wanted to run further then I would have added a lap of Primrose Hill or if a shorter run then maybe I'd only do 1 lap of Regents Park.
I guess I'm going to have to concentrate on the specific distances in future. Wonder if thats going to feel different?
Have to admit that I've been struggling with motivation recently after having hit an especially stubborn plateau. I think that £40 is a small price to pay if it gets me through this horrible patch.
I've put the route into Garmin Connect, well up until it enters the QE Olympic Park at which point it sort of loses me. Does anyone have a more detailed map through the park as I'd like to ride the route on my bike.
I know that there was some debate a while back about people stating a finish time and being way over optimistic. I'm currently running a very sedentary 12:30min/mile but have put down a finish time equating to a 9:30min/mile. Hoping thought to go sub 9 with some focused training. As this is my first organised race anyone think I've done wrong?
