Yep, that's right, fast as you can.  So try to pick a flat section to do it.

I think it's time for a time trial

On your next run after the Monday LSR - start with 1.5k warm up, strides, then wait until heart drops to normal, then 1.5k as fast  as you can please. Then go for a gentle 5k easy after  you've recovered.

We'll use that for your new paces.

JJ, I'm not surprised about the legs being a bit heavy, you will still be on the last phase of marathon recovery and you have maintained quite a lot of training.  It should ease up this week / next week.

Pain in Pelvis/Lower abdomen

CotswoldRunner - I had pain / discomfort in lower back and pubic area when doing a lot (for me) of distance work which culminated in a sacral stress fracture.  The pelvic / lower back soreness was the warning signs. When it actually fractured the pain switched to a sharp pain when I walked or ran.  Hope it's not that in your case but mentioning it because it took months to diagnose, and I had to stop completely for while so ended up taking a year to recover.

Good JJ - I presume you did your long run today.  This week's 3 runs -

8k easy

Tempo - warm up 1.5k, 5k at  6:00 per k, then cool off 1.5.

LSR of 16k again.

Plus the other  sessions - swim / gym etc.

JJ, noted on the events.  So we are going for a 10k pb July.

The hills session - after warming up, run uphill for 2 minutes at about 80% effort, then jog back down again.  Repeat 7 times - ie a total of 8 times.  Then cool off.  See how the legs feel afterwards, also monitoring the groin strain.  And please wear the HRM.

JJ, that's fine.  Next couple of weeks we'll keep the LSR 'short' (ish) at a mere 16k.

So this week -

1 x 8k easy

1 x hills (hooray!  they are back!) warm up 1 - 1.5k.  Then 8 x 2 mins up a reasonable hill and jog down again.  Rest in between if you need to.  Cool off 1 - 1.5 again.

1 x LSR 16k

...and throw in a swim and at least one core session that I know you are not really doing

In 2 weeks time we'll do a time trial and set new paces.

 10k in about 3 months time would be good for a pb I reckon.  Alternatively, we can stick with building strength for a couple more months and go pb hunting in Autumn when it'll cool off again.  Up to you.

JJ, not bad at all.  Let me know what your next events are and we can work out what next!

...or both...

Best of luck JJ, but I'd say just enjoy the day.
