Afternoon all, some incredible running goin here!
Muddy - That's a brilliant 10K time, congratulations!
Sorequads/Millsy/Macca - Cheers for the advice. Great workout out, Sorequads.
Managed 17M this morning with 8M at MP. Wet, miserable and a bleeding nipple. First time I've done this and boy did it hurt. In fairness I chose a fairly lumpy route. Did 4.5M between 7:15-30 and then 8M @ around about 6:30's, with the quickest mile at 6:22. Last 4.5M was ran at 7-7.10's. Overall pace of 6:53/mi. Pleasing, and feeling a little less guilty after the missus and I demolished 3/4 of a cheesecake to serve 7 last night....
If I'm planning on a sub 2.45, that works out at 6.17 splits. Just wondering if I'm being a little ambitious and whether 2.50 may be a more sensible option? Granted, my race pace is significantly quicker than training pace. Still, the marathon is a fairly unknown beast to me.
68.6M week completed, one of my highest weekly mileage weeks ever. Challenging, but enjoying the schedule.
XC County Champs next Sat then HM the following weekend; what do folk normally do in terms of compromising the P&D schedule to allow a taper to race? My thoughts were just to drop the Friday MLR.
Happy new year guys.
