First world problems.

An interesting dilema. A pristine garden and lawn devoid of wild life or a bit rough round the edges with some biodiversity. My mrs has banned me from treating the lawn as she says it poisons the birds   and don't get me started on slow worms .

Half Marathon Pacing Advice

Posted: 14/08/2015 at 15:03

Like everyone else has said I've always found that runnning 6-7 miles at target pace is the key to running a good half marathon. In the 6 weeks before a half my training plan looks like this:

Monday: 7 miles at HM pace

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday 7 miles at HM pace

Thursday: rest

Friday: Long run (12 miles)

As far as pacing is concerned I have, learned from the 10k advice given to me by philpub, stick to an even pace and don't try and bank time. Too fast in the first half only leads to a lot of pain and slowing down form about 10miles

You might be interested to note that a 40:28 10k time translated into a 1:28 HM (with a cold) for me earlier this year.

Shobukhova was a doper, apparently. I'm waiting for the next high profile with interest.

Personally, I'd be testing parkrunners. Half of them are hungover.

 What would you be testing them for, Alka-seltzer?

I got new glasses today (buy one get one free) and can't decide which ones to use as my main pair and which to have as the spare pair.

Just thought that I would my tuppence worth to the court of popular opinion. The media appear to be conducting a witch hunt against Mo Farah because he doesn't dance to their tune. For example, a columnist in the times on Saturday argued that he was fair game, because he refused to divulge the names of his unborn twins to the media when they asked. A sure sign that he is a wrong'un. 

edinburgh marathon....or a marathon by another name?

I have only done the Half marathon, but I don't mind the route. Then again it does hold a degree of nostalgia for me as it passes my old primary and secondary school; the pub where I first started drinking; the street where I used to live, my nephews house etc.

website malware?

An update of flash player today seems to have solved the problem.

Edinburgh is a small city, if the marathon was within the city centre it would have to be a number of repeat loops.  You would get bored by the monotony of running past the castle for the 10th time.
