Too fast again today. ML pace shouldn't be quicker than 7:13, but I ran 11 @ 6:57.
Will reign it in from now on, as I'd hate to burn out.
I prefer to stick to the same paces over the whole schedule. I couldn't run a 2:54 marathon now, but will use the training paces for that.
I'm hoping that the increasing weekly mileage and length of speedy elements within training runs will extend the time that I can run 6:38mins/mile to 2hours 54minutes.
Started 18week plan yesterday - P&D 55-70mpw. 9mi with 4 @ 15k to HMP pace yesterday.
I got a bit excited because it was day one. Should have been 6:10 to 6:19, but I ran 5:57!
Thanks for your advice everyone. I think I'll give consideration to adjusting target by a couple of minutes quicker, then see how those training paces go for a couple of weeks.
