TT - we'll do our best! I'm doing Cardiff Half on 5th October. Target time? Who knows! I'd certainly like to put my half PB (1:14:46) to bed, and I note that a couple of people from the club have overtaken my time this year, which will not do at all.
SG - it's my own session and I did it alone. it's not that mad - the reps are longer and total 12K but they're run at threshold pace, so not the all-out burn-up of V02 max training, and feeling pretty comfortable to begin with. I could have raised the pace at any point if necessary, which I think is how it's supposed to feel.
Whilst I will admit to having squeezed the pace in the last 600m of the last rep, everything else was definitely threshold pace. Jack Daniels has the Lactate Threshold Zone for me off a 15:42 5K as being between 5:12 and 5:31 (yes, the 5:12 looks a little strong, but I was well shy of that last night), whilst the McMillan 'tempo intervals' zone is 5:16-5:24.
Doesn't mean I'm going to run a 10 mile race at that pace though.
Al_P - just a causal weekend training marathon featuring an 18 minute parkrun then? Slacker...
bains - nice mile reps off a short recovery
Jimbob - good long run.
Charlie - I feel like I'm more familiar with your feet now than with my own.
PP - nice cruising.
Some decent HM training under the belt this week. A 12 featuring a 'Coro 10' (58:41) on Monday, and then 4 x 3K reps on the track last night with 600 recoveries (10:05, 10:06, 10:02 and a cheeky 9:57). All seems to be coming on well, that must mean an injury or illness is round the corner. Just slow stuff until the relays now. PP - Samir will be running Leg 2 - stick around after the vets race to watch, it's gonner be Jurassic.
