Wow, what a fast moving thread.
3 weeks into base training and I think I've hit a mini plateau, don't feel as if I am making great strides. I guess everyone training at low HR gets this. There are lots of positives I guess - zero fatigue, bags of energy, finding it easier to stay low (not mastered it but getting there) - but I am really beginning to look forward to speeding up, feel like I'm running with hand brake on.
I have Robin Hood Half Mara on Sunday. Booked ages ago. Don't want to sacrifice the gains of HADDing and will have to be very disciplined. What's the assembled wisdom on races during base training?
