I’m currently half way through my final block of hard training before I taper for VLM. After a rest day on the 14th March I’ve run the following mileage -18 (including 1:23HM), 10.6, 15, 22, 10, 6, 15.5 including HM in 1:21, 10.5, 9, 10 & 5.5 double including intervals and 13.5 this morning. I’ve another 5 after work today and then the following before a rest day and taper – 10, 6, HM race, 18, 8, 10, 10&5 double including intervals, 13.5&5 double, 8, 23, 8 and relax!
This is based on a P&D 12 week schedule. The 1:21 HM on Saturday was in Larne and including a final 5k of about 18:20 which is faster than I’ve run a Parkrun in over a year. Yep, I’m coming into some good form after my 3 week lay-off. I'm niggle free, feeling strong and confident about a PB in London.
Edit - Oh and the HM in 1:21:39 was also a PB!
