Skanky Hansons 14mi w/ 10mi Progression (10secs/mi from 7:25 to 5:55) today. It was interesting - like being put in a vise and having it cranked tighter every mile - quite similar to the last bit of a marathon.
I was early for each mile, but by no more that 4secs until the last one, which ran in 5:45. Filth!
You're welcome Scott. I'll run the progression on the flat, to enable accurate pacing. I'm almost looking forward to having a go at it. After four back-to-back cycles of P&D, it's nice to try some different workouts.
10mi w/ 5x1000m today on the dirty Hansons 60-80 today. It hurt.
Looking ahead this week, the two other key workouts are 14mi with 10mi of progression: 10secs per mile from 7:25 to 5:55 pace, and an 18mi w/ 8MP. These are sandwiched between 7mi recovery and 8mi easy runs with strides to make 70mi total for the week.
Not massively different to P&D, It looks quite "marathony" and I can see it being quite effective.
