As impressive as it is, I'm with Dachs. Same goes with joggling. It's impressive being able to juggle for 2:55 without dropping a ball, even more so covering a marathon in that time. But I'd far rather run a 2:30 marathon than a 2:55 whilst juggling. I was trying to find this guy's PBs to see what his normal marathon time would be and found his blog. Turns out he's done a 2:50 whilst juggling (that time not without dropping a ball). But - in the joggling rules, turns out that he's allowed to stop juggling at any time so long as he comes to a complete stop. So he stopped about 6 times at water stations. That's not 2:55 of non-stop juggling.
Some pretty awesome rep sessions going on here. Those mile reps from Matt and Dachs hurt just reading about them. And good shorter ones by SG and cracking pyramid Pete. That 1600 in the middle looks particularly good! And of course Reg with the cinder track reps - that must be much tougher than a normal track.
Gym session for me yesterday was the first one for 3 weeks and my legs fairly notice! 4 miler straight afterwards and then 10 hilly miles this morning followed by 4x 20 second strides. Think my Garmin said something like 700+ foot of climbing and average pace in the 7:20s somewhere. The weather has taken a fairly sinister turn - pissing rain and windy. I'll see if I can be arsed going out at lunchtime. Just shy of 50 miles for the week so far but I'll probably be struggling to do much running over the weekend, so would quite like to put in 5 or 6 miles at lunchtime.
I've done the 8x 1k a few times. First time I did it I remember it being an absolute beast of a session but not so much now. I've done 2x 5x1k before as well and 8x 1k + 5x 200m. Don't think I've ever done the rocking 3x 2 miles or 6x 1 miles (yet...).
Big one this morning for me. We're away on holiday on Saturday so not sure what the weekend will be like in terms of opportunity to run, so long one done this morning and combined it with a session.
3 miles warm up, 60 mins build-up, 2 miles cool down. 60 mins consisted of 20 @ 6:36-6:39 pace (came out at 6:36), 20 mins @ 6:25-6:29 pace (came out at 6:30), 20 mins @ 6:16-6:21 pace (came out at 6:18).
Pretty bloody delighted with that. 14.3 miles in total @ ave. 6:50 pace, through HM in 1:28 bang on. A couple of years back, sub 90 was a big target for me and I've just relatively casually knocked that out at 6:30am on a Wednesday morning before work.
