My Half Marathon is a week on Sunday, last weekend I did Parkrun hard effort & think I probably burnt a few matches, also big session on the Sunday, 10 mile tempo run in 1:00:00
This week I got my track session done on Tuesday, but have felt very flat & am feeling flat now.
I think I will do a Parkrun tomorrow but more restrained, what kind of session should I do on Sunday a week out from a HM ?, I want to do some stuff at or approaching HM speed / effort, but think doing another 10 mile / 1 hour Tempo run will be taking the Michael a little bit.
I don't want to be feeling like this this time next week, certainly hope I haven't peaked a week too soon.
Decent enough Parkrun from me as well; 16:47 for 3rd ( 2nd place ran 16:47 as well ), seemed like quite a few of the local big guns were out & about this morning so none too shabby a performance & feeling quite good about my HM in a months time.
No autumn Marathon for me Lev, I think the only one I could do that would work for me in terms of timescale etc is Valencia, but that's not going to happen. possibly could do the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon for "fun" / a decent training run IE a 2:58 / 2:59 showing but aim to run under 3 hours, no faster & no slower. I did the Luton Marathon a few years ago & looking back on it, one has to admire the grimness of it all. Must be one of the oddest Marathons in Britain.
Good luck in Berlin, I reckon you will do well & then you can run New York for "fun"
