Simple Training Forumla, would it work?

Yes - it's been a mad rush at work the past few days.

JJ, best thing to do is pick a day and do a time trial - preferably after a rest day; warm up 1.5k easy, followed by 3 x strides (gradually accelerating sprints) then let heart rate subside for 1-2 minutes, then 1.5k flat out.  Then cool off for 1- 1.5k.  The fast time in the middle determines the training paces.  Then we'll do a new plan based on that.

JJ,, thanks for a great race report.  On the question of the stitch, I think we can put that down to the rather hearty breakfast .

It sounds like our pacing strategy was just right.

The big questions now -

knee status?  do you need to rest it?

next target event?  a 5k or a 10k would be a good test of where you are now.

We'll have to take a few minutes off that for next year

Really glad you did it, and I'm sure the race experience will help next time around.  What now?  Rest the knee and cycle for a bit?

I see you finished on a sprint!  Well done JJ, I hope your knee feels good tomorrow - it's a rest day by the way .  You can do 3k easy if you really feel you have to run

JJ, everyone runs harder than they should from time to time on training runs.  JUST NOT IN RACE WEEK

For the race itself I recommend you stick with the 6:59 for the 1st 11k and the see how you feel.  Push it by a few seconds a k for the next 5 and if all good push hard final 5k.

JJ, please stop racing when it's not a race - defeating the object of having a plan.

I recommend you do exactly what it says in the plan .  It is set up as a taper.
