Overdone it?

@ knee stumps

I'm surprised that you'd risk feeling weary and a tight achilles with a 5k session so close to the start line, Skinny. Sounds like the sort of stupid thing i'd do rather than the sensible swap you'd initially planned. I hope it feels ok tomorrow.

It was blowing like a blowy thing this morning and as i lay in bed at 5:45 contemplating a 2 hour run, i remembered that i may be racing a 10 this Friday so off to my trusty old treadmill i went and sweated out 90 mins with 5-10 mins at MP to break the monotony of breakfast TV About half an hour later i nearly got blown off my bike on the way to work which nicely justified the treadmill run.

EDIT : I'm not sure how exactly the wind managed to nearly blow me off as i was drafting behind my 13 year old son at the time

Is this do-able?

If you're used to 20 a week i wouldn't push to more than 25 and off your 4 days would suggest something like

Tues   5 easy

Thurs  6-7 quality session including a good 2M w/u and at 0.5M c/d

Fri      3-4 recovery

Sun    10 easy

I'd say 12-14 long run is a bit much for your weekly mileage and not necessary for a 5 miler

If you can get 3-4 miles of quality in the Thurs session that should be sensible at around 12-16% of weekly mileage. General guideline is that quality mileage shouldn't be more than 15% of total mileage.

Yep, that seems pretty good to me, quite stable over 12 miles.
177 is the most I've seen in a 5k and I suspect my max is about 185 having seen 183. It bugs me not knowing for sure and I'm tempted to have a go at the tests that Tommy did a little while back so I can sleep better at night

Muddy - a piss is just about enough warm up for me

McF - for my first I averaged 156bpm which is about 84%, and second was just under that but I had to ease off so as not to poo myself. 88 sounds a bit much to sustain for 26.2 but of course it depends on how reliable your max is ? Was your HR relatively stable ? If so, I'd say that's a good sign, not so good if it's drifting.

Not sure how the post about Skinny got in there as I posted that a while ago ?
