Good luck ric

i recognised from this weeks training I'm short in conditioning so today I took a session from Daniels of 5*1m target 5.30 pace 1 min rec.  I hit 5.28,5.28,5.30,5.30,5.31.

happy enough with that but needs more work as felt hard.

What was his silly mistake?  Cutting the course? Cheating  the charities?

you seem very close to this chap, defending him, managing to speak on his Facebook page when he is  rejecting others.  any chance you know him? 

5k training, whats better?

Running late - I did an 8 week training plan alternating between 3*1m or 5*1k ran at race pace with long recoveries.  About 6 mins.  People advised to do shorter recoveries but by keeping the recoveries long made sure I kept the consistency of pace. But they must be run at race pace.  I hit my target in the race

Bus - another good fell race, so soon after the quads are aching at the thought.  I can second how good the sticky toffee pudding is, for my birthday a few ago my wife booked me into l'enclume in cartmel. Great food but also remember bringing home loads of the local bakeries sticky toffee pudding to eat at home.  

stevie see- tough sounding experience at spring 5. I guess your race on Sunday is air products?  If so I will catch up then as I will be spectating.


4*3*200 target 30 off 30 secs rec with 5 mins between sets.  Sounded easy before the start but was clinging on at the end, was windy and second rep of each set was very hard.. The low rec made them very tough, they came out

Phil, agree but if she can train that hard and hit that time we should be able to get some more elite men at that level too.

bus, I missed your fell exploits too.  Looked fun and not much off your PB there.  congrats.

first track session in 3 weeks.  Did 6*800 + 1*200 for 5kvolume. Off 90 rec.  target was 2.28-30. i hit ave 2.29. With a 29 200 to close.   considering its first time back since injury I'm happy with that, It was harder work than It should have been and I could tell my conditioning wasnt right.  But that will come back quickly I'm sure.

You don't measure progression each week but after a block of training.  Since jan you have progressed significantly.

Philip, that list is depressing.  Shows how poor we are at marathons. didn't Paula run a 2.15, she would have finished 3rd on that list.  Time for the men to errrr, man up and put the type of hard miles in Paula used to.

Nothing like your thread Scott. As you are showing fantastic progression.
