Never Dean!! Matthew Hibberd perhaps? I think he still "won" the 35 age to up so well done to him either way, soon he can say he was beaten by a world champ!

Seen that Matts crew are tearing up thunder run!

11m for javelin SC is poor I am sorry. I thought you'd fair much better but very nice session otherwise

7 miles at 6:10AM - 141 AV so 74.2% came out at 6:58s Was surprised to see first two miles 6:47/6:49 and feeling "slow" kept HR in check and felt ok. First run in new orthotics after wearing them over the week at work etc and feet seemed ok. Will only wear them for running. Slowed last 3m but only natural running at the same HR

And finally a breakdown in simple format (based on Strava rounding the mileage so probably nearer 45.5/46m)

Week 1

Sunday 5.7m @7:12 - 72.1%
Monday 7.3m @7:22 - 73.6% + 4m @7:21 - 71%
Tuesday REST
Wednesday 10m @7:05 - 73.1%
Thursday - REST
Friday ??? 6m @7:09 - 71.5%
Saturday ??? 12m @7:20 ??? 72.6%

45m total

(Based on 190 Max HR)

142.5 = 75%
133 = 70%

Ah ok! Sub 5 smash it!

Yes, don't think I'll be around much this week, working Tuesday night, going to theatre Wednesday night and Thursday footy with mum for her birthday and then off to IOW Friday but will let you know!

Possible next Sunday evening?

Quick stalk and that looks like a PB although with him running 33:0x at Eastleigh I'm guessing around 16 dead is within his abilities. Bearing in mind like you he was marathon training upto April. Unsure what all the lads are upto at the track these days

Sounds like a good couple of days ahead though! Would you be looking to run the mile even quicker or not ideal with those runs and not on the track

I think I have 8m tomorrow but Totton way then 6m Monday possibly with Kyle and at the same time quick check over the foot and hip

Very very nice 20 miler! Good to bag that post London with Salisbury coming, and good hill / trail combo too!

Yes even though was a "short" run in comparison it made it so much easier on the mind

Work was indeed not fun, going to be awful for the next 6 weeks though with the kids off

Good to know it worked for you RicF! I'm in a position I can still try new things since I've not exhausted options in training and need to build miles anyway. Of course all training can be a grind but something new will help given I found I was in a plateau I guess and doing similar things. Frustrated that I did several 4/5m tempos at 5:30 pace only to produce that in the two races.. Naturally given my low average mileage I should improve but I think the long term it'll benefit me much more when I get consistent sessions in on top of it.

Had a brief chat with RunNer via Strava yesterday and I said it will be interesting to see how I fare at the IOW HM on August 16th. Given he is coming into the form sessions have showed will be a good thread race

I already feel stronger but not faster so to speak, I will speak to coach about introducing strides at the end of some of the runs

12m early again, out by about 6:10 . Stayed in an unknown area so was lovely to run on new roads, could have ventured off road but didn't want to get too lost. Lovely day, much changed from yesterday!

7:19 pace so 1:28 hour on my feet and a good few hills so it bumped up the HR although aiming to keep it c140 again. Some low 7 miles and some 7:4xs

Average HR 138 so 72.6% MHR

The PF on left foot was painful again to start and eased. Tender now after the run so going to be careful about this

Can't quote exact mileage for the week till I see my log but c45

Yup rain is crap now and confirmed by us filling up at work to capacity not allowing any more customers in at one point. Disgusting

Yeah look into the race should be good and an alternative to the windy GSR a week later

Not quite sure but GFs dad lives Durley way so out there? Run tomorrow will be fun have no idea where I will be
