Olliepop that is some recovery run ! Tell your cousin you are in the zone !
Tek nice run there ! HR is going to be high if its humid just throw the thing (HRM )! away like I did
SM6 excellent mid week MLR , the longest P&D mid weeker is 15 miles in tne toughest schedule so 14 is ample
SC really sorry to hear you are still injured , I have a male friend exactly the same as you , suffers continually , then he keeps ' testing ' it ! please please rest its the omly way , take care keep lurking , and posting you will get plenty of support here
Fiona , a nice mix of training , any run races planned ?
OH busy as ever getting lots of variation , including the kayaking
9 easy yesterday @8.23 pace
8 today with @ tempo ( ish ) not easy feeling tired today 7.40, 7.33, 7.33, 7.37,.7.41
Did a 10k race last Wednesday ... very warm conditions and with a head wind .. unchipped though so slightly disaponted as I was given bang on 45 mins rather than 44.59 which was what my garmin clocked , plus I had started quite a way behing the line .. still a course PB by just under a minute ... and I think I can claim a sub 45
Back to marathon training today 18 miles .. 3 easy 8@MP ( around 8mm ) then 7 easy
total time for 18 was 2.32 average pace 8.27 ... luckily my brother who isnt actually marathon training kept me company ..
SM6 I saw your epic 11 miler on strava ! a seriously good run with those tough MP miles , good effort on the club stuff after that and recovery today
Ollie nice 14 and awesome 5k time even after a falll ! I think thats where most people go wrong ! marathon pace whatever it is for whover it is feels almost too easy after a good taper esoecially over the early miles but its a different story at 22 , wise words from a friend , you can run the first mile too fast but you can never run it too slow
DD well done on getting a decent speed session in at lunch time
Tek thats certainlt a different way to do a MLR !! and yes if your club is anything like mine 8mm means 7.45 at slowest ! and always a race to the club house !
GM that was really a real quality session with a training half marathon time in a time people would die for in a race ! you deserve a easy day
Cal nice progressive run never easy to pace right ! but you nailed it
Ive had a good couple of days weather perfect for a change !
10k stready run on -wednesday @ 7.45 pace
8 easy miles @ 8.25s yesterday
18 miles 9.05 pace today with a mate really chuffed with that ! longest run since April 2015 ! and it actually felt easy , plenty left in the tank ! I resisted the tempation to carry on and do 20 !!
