All this talk of VLSR's is putting me off doing the 2nd McMillan 10k workout tomorrow (1 x 2M, 4 x 1M). I will hold steady and not vary off course. The superstitious routines is oh so true OG - I seem to be collecting a load of them in quite a short time which I don't seem to shake off.
Gerard, if Abingdon did interest you, there are generally lots of places being resold (legitimately) once training begins - that was certainly the case last year. Keep up with the no-smoking - could have big pb effects.
I'm tinkering with a bit of 10k training, although I keep destroying what I do with too much speed work, and still am in the habit of doing 20milers. These two articles were of interest. The first one being about threshold run or interval training:
Bugger, late to the party JP3. I could have told you about my run, 8.273 miles at an average pace of 7:32.8 min/miles, and a heart rate of 74%, 134.76m ascent , multi-terrain, 12degrees c, light traffic, one nod from another runner, 1 encounter with a dog wearing an ipod.
Never mind, today is another day, with another run to discuss.
