Just been ticking over here with some easy runs. Have the possibility of a 5 mile race tomorrow night. Iam just at the mercy of my wife's journey down the m6 tomorrow afternoon. Even without being at my sharpest, with a good run a pb is a reasonable prospect.
Additional. I did it through Mara training with a recovery intensity 5 miler every week and that caused no issue. I'm used to training six days a week anyway so if I didn't run id probably do an extra xt.
I wonder if I now perhaps need to adapt my plan to increase my mileage if I want to improve further. Even just adding into my schedule for eg an easy but hilly 8 as I've done this morning would help as that would represent around a 30% increase in mileage on the 25 mpw half plan?
