Get thee to the pub andrews148. Bloody hell, that's rough.
Good running this morning Scott and 15West.
11 w/6@LT this morning was not good. Target 6:30, Actual 6:48 (in a bloody hot 20c with 70% humidity).
To compare and contrast with some key LT sessions from this year:
March Half PB - 13.1@6:44
June 30th - 5@6:37 (start of plan)
July 24th - 6@6:48 (today, hot)
I'm thinking that my target LT pace of 6:30 is too aggressive given my current level of fitness. But then given that I was only 7 seconds shy of my target LT pace at the start of the plan (running at 6:37), surely these next 10 weeks are enough to shave those seconds off given the increased miles, LT sessions and dropped weight by the time race day rolls around?!
Any insights (except for 'dry your eyes and stop throwing your rattle out of the pram it's too early to make that call' )??
