Pfitzinger Race Thread 2015

Congratulations on all those who got PB's over the weekend. And to Chicksta for some smart running and Madbee for managing to have fun while running a marathon....!

Can someone please explain why my speed session this morning - 3x1k and 3x800M - was supposed to be 9 miles in total, whereas my mid week endurance run is only 8 miles? I don't understand why P&L have to make a hard session so long. I normally do a 2 mile warmup but I don't want to do a 3 mile cool down when I'm knackered. Surely 1 mile would have been long enough? In protest, I only did 8 miles in total so I guess my race is now doomed!

Morning. TGIF!

Down to the track last night for 8x600M. Should have been at 5k pace but got carried away with kids and wheelchair racers using the track and the pace ended up 20 seconds faster than it should have been! Ooops! At least I managed to finish the session and the times for the 600's were all within 6 seconds of each other.

Complete rest day for me today. Enjoy the weekend everybody.

Morning all.

Unscheduled day off today. Hamstrings have felt niggly since the cross country on Saturday so thought maybe I should have an extra rest day before my speed session tomorrow.

Hope your dog won Westy!

Nice running Chicksta!

6 x 12 second uphill sprints and 6 x 100M strides this morning. I was hoping to drag my son along for the 100M strides thinking that he may be able to beat me over 1 x 100M sprint but felt sure that he wouldn't be able to keep it up for 5 of them! I think he probably thought the same because he declined to come along!

2 days rest now before cross country on Saturday.

Hi Madmillie!

I have that Hansons book and my understanding was that it was more about time on your feet so it's only slow coaches like me that would end up doing 16 milers but speedsters like you Westy would still have to do 20+ mile runs. Or have I misunderstood.........?!


I have cross country this Saturday so I've moved things around in the plan a bit meaning that this morning it was 1k reps or actually 0.65m reps! Managed to stick to planned 5k race pace so all good.

Andrews - that's pretty much how I did that session.

Well done IE.

Just a parkrun with my youngest daughter for me today. Easy 8 miles tomorrow.

Marrows - whenever I read your posts you always sound like you're on the verge of complete madness!

Complete rest day for me too. Went to the track last night to do the 2x(4x200m). Was aiming for mile pace (having never raced a mile I went for a bit quicker than the fastest mile I've ever run in a 5k!) but ended up doing them about 45 secs faster. Mmmmm - not sure what that tells me! Was persuaded to race my 9yr old son in a 100m sprint and came across the line just after him in 21 () seconds . How the hell does Usain Bolt et al run it under 10 seconds.....!
