Overdone it?

Talking about breathing, I was reading September's runners world the other night and two separate coaches advocated the use of powerbreathe. 

I'm getting back on it next week!

Scott, your 5k and 5 mile times are quick compared to your 10k time and half time. You are quicker than me over those distances but I'm 1 and 2 mins faster over 10k and half respectively. 

Off 22 miles now, I'd say you need to be building up some miles now. Your conversion up the distances gets weaker by each distance and it's no surprise looking at your mileage.

I did a 20miler 6 weeks out from London. My schedule had 20 miles at mp plus 15. I ran at at 7.07 pace. I then decided I would run London at 7mm, which ended at 7.04mm. Running relatively low mileage myself, I think you can get away with running a 20 miler a bit faster than someone on a 60 mile a week schedule. I didn't feel my 20 miler had an advrse effect, even on my next week's training.

I'd read somewhere, perhaps my club site, that they were. It would be unusual not to and involve a lot of extra work.

It won't be so bad this time. Normally it's all 3 divisions together so about 800 runners. This will be 300 max. It is comedy though with people losing shoes and all sorts.

well done on the pb, Dr Dan. I'm pleased that in part the First principle has contributed. I do think if you can improve your times at shorter paces it'll Carry through. Just need to add miles back in to convert more sharply.

I've done that xc several times as it was always the opening fixture of Birmingham xc league. I'm planning to do it. If it follows standard route then it's 3 laps which means 3 x the comedy water jump and 3 times a climb that is barely runnable first time. There is then lots on ankle deep muddy fields and some foot path.

Rich,  yes I've looked at hr data. Mine unexplainable spikes as it happens. My issue is why? I've done races at mp and felt comfortable all the way, then suddenly....boosh. 

Not too hilly then. Certainly a good bit less that Nottingham.

Excellent work, Muddy. Bodes well for the dash. Almost that Mark of serious and proper runner achieved with sub 60, 10 miles. Will you have another go at Sneyd?

Good xc work lit and mcf. Good news on the prize, mcf. Perhaps Velloo could pop in with her own update?

Rich, that is an excellent pb. What was the course elevation? Some excellent roaring.....the question for me is, have you been faced with a vomit situation before, and if so was roaring a better coping strategy then what you've tried before? Will you roar in future?

No running for me this week. I'm on holiday in west Wales. I will be eating and drinking slightly excessively, though I don't anticipate Mace level indulgence as I'm self catering.

Yes last year I followed my scedule but added in a weekly easy 5 miler. I found the scheduler last time quite straightforward so plan this time is to make that 5 a 10. It's only 5 more a week but I think the additional stress of changing a 5 mile recovery into a 10 mile aerobic should have a reasonable impact.

Good luck Muddy and Rich with your weekend races. And anyone else of course!

A pleasant 15miler tonight. I'm off on a mini holiday Sunday so having a well needed week off work and running. 

Muddy, I'm intrigued, was it just sat on a shelf there?

Lou/mcf, have you heard anything about Coventry half? I heard today it wouldn't be happening next year. Looking at website there's no date set and by now you'd expect entries open.
