Overdone it?

Wah, just seen Garmin connect naming my runs for me. Weird.

I'm allergic to beer but would do well in a gin mile.

Yes, and yes, the toilets are open but even if they weren't, your next best toilet option would be the Marina pub.

There was a guy on the P&D thread last year who did what you were suggesting Bob had done in the guise of a question about what you could be doing, Skinny - he would do his warm-up at 7:30 pace and then fail to hit his target MP of 6:50 in the Quality bit and then whinge about how it was all going wrong even though he was working really hard.

Bob clearly wins at typing speed though.

Well, either as everyone else has suggested you are knackered from training too hard and therefore unable to do yourself justice at parkrun, or you should just run a bit faster.

If you are starting every rep too fast and fading at the end, you might want to try not doing that. Do you also start the parkrun too fast and then fade?

Skinny - I never bother recording or even noticing the average pace for sessions, just the actual quality bit. But really you're asking two questions: 'should I be doing a continuous run at MP or HMP?' and also 'what pace should my warm-up and cool-down be?'

I would add to the above comments that you are seriously underperforming at parkrun too. Do you warm up before you run it? If you can do 8x 800m (6.4k) at 5:46 pace, you ought to be able to run 5k a bit faster than 6:30 pace. Unless you had really really long recoveries? And was the pace consistently 5:46? Or did you start off even faster and then tail off a bit?

Blimey. That could actually happen, too. Though at least they are red deer round here which are much smaller.

Well - I wouldn't predict sub 2:50 from those PBs, but you seemed to be training much faster than I could manage even if I thought it was a good idea. Which made me think if you could do that you ought to be able to run faster in an actual race too.

It's two weeks before this year Speedy. Oddly in the plan HMP morphs into 6:15s a couple of weeks later.

Why has Tom Chinery been deleted?

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
