A very wet GA 9 miles done last night - was soggier than a soggy thing that's proper soggy!
Thanks for the suggestions about the LT runs. I think in future I might go to the track, but for tonight I'm going to wuss out and opt for the dreadmill. 20mph winds and a bucket load of rain (again!) is too much after I've only just dried out from last night's run. Will do the LT miles slower on the treadmill though as I really struggle to run fast on those damn things, will be based more on effort levels. As Millsy says, I think it's far too early to be obsessing about paces just yet.
Slowkoala - I'm another that can't get anywhere near race pace in training - can't even get to HM pace at the moment! Lord knows how I did 13.1 miles of it when I'm currently struggling to do one!
Just focussing on upping the mileage at the moment, speed will come in time (hopefully!)
Planning on doing 9 mile GA run after work. Might even get the shorts out again whilst the temperature has shot up .
Need to do the LT run tomorrow but already panicking about where the hell I'm going to run. Really don't fancy 4 miles around the track but I just physically can't get the pace high enough on roads. Where do you all do your LT runs?
Excellent acp! It's bloody awful waking up at that time of day, but the smug feeling of arriving at work knowing your run for the day is done is worth it. And the fact that the 6am post-run coffee is the best thing ever.
tsk, tsk, where did all these blog wankers come from ?
I'm up and running with a slightly adjusted week one of the plan. On holiday from Friday so squeezed in my 12 miles (that turned into a half mara) last night and did a peaceful 4 mile recovery at 5am this morning.
Also making an effort to use my HRM again - will see how long that good intention lasts for.
