17 with 12@ ~7:19. MP section was way too hard but I'm not sure if that's because it's simply too fast or fatigue and fuelling issue. I hadn't eaten for about 12 hours before that run, but then most of my running is unfueled anyway. Never mind, happy to have it done!
Fiona - Nice threshold pace, especially on the first one for so long! And sounds like some good training over the weekend
Was going to do 21-22 today but it's a pretty calm day so I think I'm going to do this MP run that is scheduled for yesterday (if I was actually following P&D) 16 with 12 I think. Not ideal to have done 3 fast runs in 5 days, but doing this would let me get to the club session on Thursday which I'd like as I've not been in a while! And I can jog all the rest of next weeks miles other than that
Not sure my legs will fancy MP right enough, find out soon...
Mr Soft - You could do the half with a few miles either side to make up to 18? And yes, I think most people will find at some point during marathon training that the legs just can't hit the pace you want, due to fatigue. No need to worry
NN - Fantastic, great PB and some nice trophies
OH - Well done on the run and nice total so far for the year
NP - Well done on toughing out the 20, I was too soft for that
Tek - That's a tough session! Well done, good total for the week too
Stewart - Well done on the 9, hope you're feeling better
Cal - Well done on the 13 miles yesterday, obviously good if the last mile was the quickest!
Michael - Nice running, I really doubt I could do a 21:30 5k the day after 22 miles! That's impressive!
Wet and wild this morning, so looked at weather forecast and rescheduled the long run for tomorrow morning 6 done in some pretty horrible winds.
Tek - Nice short easy effort, not windy here yet No doubt that'll appear for tomorrows long run though...
NP - Haha, you really have to wonder about some people... Another great parkrun for you this morning And, yes, a PB by 42 seconds although I've not ran a flat 5k in a long time
MG - Take it easy, wise move in ditching the long run.
7.8 in total this morning, with the mentioned 18:45 parkrun. Really didn't expect that when I woke up this morning, legs still sore and haven't slept more than 5 hours since Tuesday so utterly thrilled to run so well
I had set myself a 5k goal of 18:40 for the year, might need to revise that
