It is the 1.5km pace we need isnt it? So  i will reset my watch for that part of the run so we have a clear indicator.

You did say we would look at a time trial, so will be interesting what i can achieve.

8km tempo done.

I seem to be having a problem with pacing at the moment.Either my legs are now back to normal (they do feel good again) and my pace is faster following all the marathon training, or i am pushing too hard. I am not sure which to be honest.

What i do know is that i can manage those paces quite well now, yes i get tired by the end of the runs but nothing where i am struggling, i am certainly not gasping for breath.

What are your thoughts?

8km easy done, well it was not too tough, but i was a little tired at the end but nothing excessive. Now for the bad bit, I think i was too fast, but i was very consistent and it felt like my right sort of pace. Perhaps I have improved more than I thought maybe?

Thursday I am at a Marine Insurance Institute dinner in Manchester with free food and wine and beer and cocktails etc. So Friday will be a right off. Fridays run will be Saturday and Sundays run will be Monday on the bank holiday.

16km done, and surprising how i feel.

During the run i was comfortable at my marathon path from Manchester of 7.04 - 7.07. At 14km I started to feel tired but kept the pace up ok all the way home indeed increased it slightly.

Stretched, had a bath and bang my legs ache like hell lol. Mainly hamstrings. Feels weird from just 16km. But another good run banked.

That was a good run tonight, my feet felt surprisingly good and i felt fit.

I managed to do the 8 repeats with only a 10-15 second walk between each as I finished the jog and turned around to sprint back up the hill.

Was able to find a hit that was exactly 2 minutes long, couldnt believe that, as there are no real hills near me, just the shorter steep one.

Got home and legs are on fire a little but i feel good.

Couldnt get the swimming done today as called in to a meeting.

Did the 8km tonight and it was fine no groin issues. I ran further than 8km by the looks of it as the watch didnt record correctly at the beginning hence the weird time, it counted time but not distance for around 300-400 meters.

Legs were aching during the run from Sunday, but ok, was nice and hot lol.

Not sure we have a hill around here that is 2 mins long. I do have a steep hill that I did the repeats on. Which is about 300 to 400m
