Padams - That's quite an impressive sub-16, given all the parameters you threw into the Pugometer!
LMH - That looks like an excellent ambition. I can't help on the qualifying criteria. Most times I've searched UKA/EA websites for clear information it feels like trying to get through the Crystal Maze or something.
Alan - Nice mileage and a very nice progressive tempo run in amongst it.
Re: PBs over different distances, I learnt some time ago that my leg speed is poor, relative to aerobic fitness, and it appears to particularly affect pace relationship when I'm running much faster than threshold. I'm quite enjoying targeting 3,000m races this year, although I don't think I'd really enjoy doing the optimum training for it if I was taking it seriously. All that lactic!
The cold has definitely taken hold, so I'm glad to have eeked out a decent race before it reached gunk stage. I'm sure the rest will do me good.
Oh, Scott - cheers for the idea , although that's probably a little too far to get me out during the week, and another option I have will be on the Saturday that week. (Simon's also trying to get me to Watford. Ha!)
