How is everyone's training week shaping up? I just did my 'hard' run for today (5 miles in 41:52 mins). I can't really go with the way the training plan describes the hard runs so I end up mixing and matching a bit of impromptu fartlek with steady/fast pacing. So far it has been alright.
As I'm following the RW sub4:30 planner, tomorrow will be 7 miles (slow) and Thursday will be a 4-miler.
The planner suggests 15 miles to incorporate a half marathon on Sunday but the only fairly local HM to me is the Race Your Pace one in Windsor, which is on a Saturday. I've entered that so hopefully it should go okay. I'm not expecting a PB (not even expecting sub2:00 really) but would be nice to just get it done, and then there'll be the Fleet Half which I'll do in March.
I hope I won't burn out having 2 HMs prior to the full marathon but if that's what the planner suggests, then it should be okay.... right?
