Overdone it?

Tommy, my 10k is wed night. This race lat year was my SB and I don't think I'm at least in any worse shape.

I do still find it bizarre when I see someone at the end of a lower part of the pack 10k able to put together a full on flat out 100m sprint.

Madbee, yes I'm quite enjoying it. I feel like I'm chomping at the bit for the next run and my leg niggles are easing nicely. I think there is scope to run a 4th time each week as long as I run alternative days. If I followed this plan for a marathon I think I would slip in a 4th easy longish run.

Alehouse, my last two 10ks in April and May came in at 40.30 and 40.40. The first I had a streaming cold, the second I had to stop after 1k to help with that horse situation and it was a hilly course. I don't see any reason not tp set off at circa 6.25 pace. Lase year this was my sb course in 40.26. Its a good race in that its part of the local midweek series so you are in fact racing plenty of others you know well, so that helps.

Andrew, sounds like your patience is paying off and that pb is going soon.

My average hr over the 7 miles was 166. For context my half hr is anything from 174-178. I think the heat would have added a few beats to the average so I'd call that mara pace.

Had a decent cycle to work and back today. Normally one way is with the wind the other is against so so this morning I got in, in my third quickest time in 5 years so assumed I had a nice little tail wind and expecting a battle into it home. However I then got home in what I think was my third ever quickest time, giving me easily the fastest aggregate time i,ve ever done.

Anyone about??

Andrew, how did that parkrun turn out?

I've been slowly 'plodding' through my schedule. Sunday was 11 miles with 9 at 7.17 mm, however the weather conditions and the local beer festival the two days before meant I called it a day at  11 with 7 hard, albeit at 7.10 pace. The run is replicated this Sunday so I will have another go.

Last night was 6 with 3 at 6.37 pace. Came out at 6.35 so close enough. I've a local 10k on Wednesday night so I'm going to have a good crack at that to get an idea of exactly where I am at right now.

Well done, Tommy. What's your next race?

Good luck Madbee with Saturdays marathon. I wouldn't fancy a mid summer marathon at all!

Good luck in your long run 10k on Sunday as well Muddy.

I did 6 miles with 3 at 6.37 last night and managed to almost get it right coming in at 6.35 for the 3. Cycled to work today and it was sufficiently arm to dig out my tri suit.

One more run this week and then that's week 3 complete. Im having to travel to Poole sunday afternoon to attend a driver awareness course first thing Monday, which is a bit of  ball ache.

I've forgotten all the comments I had following my read through yesterday.

By complete good fortune I've had today and yesterday booked off for several weeks now. This weather is horrible. I've said on my Facebook, with mixed reviews, that I don't understand peoples infatuation with the hotter it is, better the weather. For me, I class this as bad weather at this level.

Probably a wise decision last night, Lou.

Charlie, I'll have a good stalk on you tomorrow lunchtime.

6x 800 for me yesterday. Planned to go to track but day panned out meaning I'd get there about 1.30 so I binned it off for treadmill.

Good luck tomorrow, Tommy. I have droitwich 10k next Wednesday. I'm going to give that full beans to get a true picture of where I'm at right now and how far off pb level I am with a view to mid September 10k in Stratford.

Sorry, just catching up on the days posts and will write more fully tomorrow,  however,  Charlie,  you can't just casually drop into a drinking story that you are a published writer!! Any more details?

Looks like you're progressing, Pete.

Tommy, sounds a good little run out.

Charlie, interesting double. What was the purpose though? I assume it was necessity?

End of week two of my schedule which was 11 with 9 at 7.17. Having not started my running this week until Wednesday following Sundays half I had ended up running wed, frir, Sunday. It was the first session I've failed. Unlike muddy getting wet early on, I went out at 5 when things had 'improved'. First four miles felt very pedestrian but then a few hills and I started to overheat hugely. I couldn't tune into pace and kept going to 7.05 pace so a bit quick as well. I called it a day just over 7 miles for 7.10 ave pace. I finished the run though to get the 11 in.

I'll have another go next week as the same run is scheduled.

Lou, it says 834m of climbing which I work out as 100 foot a mile. Ouch!

Positive session though. Looks like 10k pb is pending.

Lit, sounds a very good outcome for a training run. That's the oddest start time I've seen.

Yes to both your question so it is just as well I didn't run in my friends name. Would have caused all kinds of issues.

Charlie, steady park running. Have you thought of doing Droitwich 10k?
