72 miles for me last week, then a dreadful 22 miler yesterday. Was planning 8.00 pace, but ended up averaging not far off 9 minute pace. Had to force myself to keep going from mile 2 onwards and it didn't get any better. Don't know why it was so hard - I feel fine today. A bit dispiriting really but at least I did it I suppose.

I want to bring up this heavy/light training shoe thing again. Speaking from a position of ignorance (which I often do), it seems logical that if you train in heavier shoes you will be working harder and therefore reaping more benefit in terms of strength and muscle development. Where's the flaw in my logic?


Well, sometimes a long run can just be one fo them, for whatever reason it is, either fuelling or whatever, it just doesn't happen, you've had one fo those days mate, and we've all been there... what is important, you had "that day" in training and not toeing the line at an important race...

As for shoes, I generally train in lighter trainers now, not race weight but deffo not big cushioned shoes and I've been injury free for 18 months now... so to me, they alter the style too much.

Blimey, great going that then... way under what you was aiming for... so all in a good days work. That's what I like... think on a none windy day? Could've gone alot quicker.

Yeah the fueling side is very hit and miss for me, I've done races and know I've felt so fuelled up, then others and I've gone to jelly half way through... and it's getting the balance from eating and carbing to being nice and light... I never get it right...

What an absolute disaster for me at the Alsager 5 Miler... jesus, I knew it was very windy BUT a serious lack of ability shone through hahaha... was expecting alot better I'll be honest... What a waste of time, sacked it off at 4 mile and jogged home... slowest 5 mile race I've done since 2005... Anyhow, 6:01, 5:57, 6:04, 6:10... glanced at my watch at around 3.8 mile as was blowing terribly at this point, realised how slow it was and sacked the last mile and a bit off in 6:28 going through 5 mile on the Garmin in 30:43... ended up going over line in 31:06 as course measured 5.06 mile . Not good at all Wanted 29:30... never going to happen hahahaha

Hope everyone else who raced had a good one...  I wish I'd just gone out for another 18+ plod like last weekend...

Cheers Pug

Last night tried a couple of quicker miles during a 5 with the club... just about, but was too windy... so a 5:59 and 6:20 into the wind for the middle two was as good as it gets... so jogged back after that... dreading Alsager 5 tomorrow... might actually try rolling around it instead... might be quicker

Good luck to anyone racing, lets hope the wind p1sses off!
