I've been having crap LT runs also Andrew, apart from yesterday, and they've mainly been down to the wind and general fatigue from all the training (I reckon). The wind is a killer. Pray for calm weather on race day.

Tom - you really going to set off at 6:30 pace (or whatever it is for 2:50); same with you BR and 6:50? You will feel like you're going backwards.

On the other hand - I don't blame you if this is your first Tom and planning on doing more...and you BR if you had a major slowdown in 2nd half last year. Just have a feeling you both will be negative splitting come race day.

Kid is over at her friend's tonight for a sleepover. Pubs of Chorlton here I come. Glad I've moved the long run to sunday.

Tom - you can't go for a sub 1:16 half and then a 2:50 marathon, that's just weird.

Madbee - ran my 9mi GA just now nice and slow! (needed to).

Wow Tom, that's almost my VO2 pace - you still aiming for 2:50?!?

Daughter was stressed last night as she was doing all this homework and sats tests she was given., but now she has finished it all and doesn't need to worry about it for the rest of half term. What a good girl! Must be difficult for the teachers who don't want to stress the kids but need them to do well.

Madbee - what does the book say? I always run them at my usual pace for MLR/LRs, which I guess is about 30s to 1min slower than GA. I'm not really scientific about it all, just run at a fairly comfortable pace. I do have to make a bit of an effort to run the recovery runs slower sometimes (not at the moment, I'm knackered!).

...actually Madbee I got it to sync to strava eventually...and also not sure if GAs should be super easy...

My daughter's half term has started but she's just stressed from all the SATS work!
