i leave my garmin running during recoveries. like SG says its the rep performance that matters not the total time.  

good sessions Philip and SG.   good consistency as well Philip.  did they feel like race pace?  maybe 2*800 at race pace off a long recovery next?

Ric.  over this past month i would take any time over 200 as i seem to have been sick on and off for pretty much the last 4 weeks.  today started coughing up allsorts so had to miss christleton 5k tonight.  gutted as was going to try and blast it.

mind you at least my arse isnt playing up like Scotts or feet looking like small wins

young lad at my club ran his debut 5000 on the track on saturday.  14.12 !!!  says he paced it poorly and felt too comfortable in the middle so expects to go sub 14 next time out.   And i believe him!

philip, make sure you do them fast and take lots of recovery

alehouse.  one of our group is at loughborough uni and David Gandy has him doing your type of sessions.  i think they are very good sessions.   we are going to try them this yr but i think they might be the type of session to do towards the end of your training cycle. a way of seeing if you are in shape....rather than the type of sessions to get you in shape in the first place

CC82.   there is no feeling to quite like a last 60m in an 800 race or the 3rd lap of a 1500m.  you learn all sort of new swear words.  I assume they are the sort of swear words that common around mile 22 at a marathon.    Middle distance training is much more enjoyable than other events. 

Bus- nice session.  those 200s would be interesting.  you probably need to blast them (into the 3x's for you, so they feel a different pace to the other reps) to get something out of them rather than them being extended recovery.  but mentally knowing there was a lot of reps would be tempting to go a little easy off them.

hi bus, was for PMJ.  as i think he said he had a mile race on the horizon.

the sessions are good as the actual running time is low but the recovery is high.  for example i would look to do them at near 1500 race pace but have 8mins recovery between them.  but you would need a good warm up too.

If i have short time i might do cruise intervals on the track.  my tempo pace but take 1min rec every mile.  mentally ok and doesnt need a big warm up or recovery time.  4*1mile.

work tournament...we are trying to be like google having pool /table football  etc to play on during the day

another thing that annoys me....the NB/runnersworld banner at the top of this forum says its an ultimate guide to running....but has a picture of a tennis player.  WTF is that about.  no photos of runners available?

i think phil is saying road races will get 100s if not 1000s of entrants so there will always be someone to hitch a ride behind.  on the track there might only be 30 in a 10000 so more likelihood of getting cut off in no mans land.

Mile training kind of depends where you are at the moment. no point doing killer speed stuff if you are not strong and wont hold it together on the 3rd lap.  i would say 600m reps would be a good guide but they have to be run fast.   maybe 4 reps.

Or possible 2*800 off big recovery but at near race pace

Or a 1k time trail at race pace...loooong recovery then 1* 400m &  1*200m

if you feel strong then its pace you are after so 2*600, 2*300, 2*150 long recoveries between sets maybe 5 to 8 mins but you have to be flat out.

similar to dachs i was on pacing duties this weekend...i paced a a girl from our training group (she is only about 17 but has represented england) to the ladies course record at our local parkrun.  we were in about 5th position and i could see the leader only 60m ahead. many of the locals didnt know i was pacing her, so there were loads of shouts ..."go on lucy put these men in their place and beat them" 

into the last mile i could see the leaders not too far ahead and i was really keen to blast it and storm to a victory.  but thought better of it and stayed on message and completed my pacing to which she broke the record by 7 secs.
