Mild pb tonight. 31.29 on watch. I'm fact average pace was 6.15 though I got caught up in a 6.02 first mile leading to a 6.27 last mile. It was a quite heavy evening with a bit of headwind and 200 foot of climbing. All in all reasonably satisfied.
Muddy and I are off to Harvester now for a sweaty dinner.
Thanks for the tip. I can do that and then use the calculated Maidenhead time to tell me what I should achieve 4 weeks later in Bristol (which is a bit flatter than Nottingham) which I am unable to run as it clashes with Nottingham.
Happy big birthday, Mace. Hope things improve soon on the foot side of things.
I must make a point of conducting such an analysis after I run the very hilly Kenilworth half in 10 days, in anticipation of the Robin Hood. I can make it more interesting as well by referring back to 2012 when I ran Kenilworth and followed it 4 weeks later with the Bristol half.
Autumnal 5 tonight so I am hopeful of a pb given I have beaten the time in almost every 10k i've raced since September and more recently on a tempo run. I think the balance is not being too greedy by charging off at sub 6 pace then blowing up. A 6.15 average should be achievable, based on my recent parkrun and would deliver a reasonable pb.
I have recently become more irritated than usual by people using the term 'literally' when speaking metaphorically. It peaked the other night when a team GB medallist was interviewed and asked a question and he said 'I literally can't speak'!!!!!
