Moraghan Training - Stevie G

it's worth you turning out either way I think Scott, especially as it's fairly local for you? For me it'd be an 80mile drive, so probably not worth it this year.

Starts on a track for 200m or so, to get you monstering from the off, and then a good out and back route. There's a slight incline midway, and you do get a bit of wind down the last mile or so, but then you have the last 400m or so back for a glorious finish, last 200m or so on the track again.

And you're right, i'd fancy a race or 2 as soon as i've done a faster session or 2. What I find these days is that i barely miss any actual training days injured, perhaps 4 or so in the last year, but get a yearly niggle and take a couple of months to ease it out. Normally ones that you can run through quite comfortably, but limit the top end, and stall you for a bit!

26 dead wow. Although my 5mile pb is actually at Marlow, Victory is a faster course, It's a lovely race Dachs. Quality field, nice fresh coast air, and a fast course.

Out of my 3 races there, the second was the best, and started a glorious 6month period through to March 2013 of pbs at 5m, 10m, 5k, 10k and half. Hopefully they won't be the final pbs!

Still, one step at a time, get this 90% niggle free to 100%, and get cracking again!

Ive done the victory 5 the last 3years.the 10k runs parallel, but is very much billed as a fun run. So be wary if planning it expecting a good field! Its the only time ive ever seen a funrun longer in distance then the main race!

I bet you spent about 10mins making sure you didn't make any errors there didn't you.

It's normally standard that when you correct someone, you make at least one

Not even that high a standard Ric.

And I think I remember the 5k being something like £25 and 20 or so mins winning the 5k.

Probably costs a bomb to hire that setting though, and I know the Dashers wouldn't dream of only running a 5k for the fee involved.

Nice race Dorney Dash Dachs. Quality can be up and down though. I did it in 2011,and was something like 11th or 12th. Phil Wicks winning, and a sprinkling of 32s to 34s.

Then they missed a year for the Olympics, and the year after I believe our very own Johnas was 2nd or 3rd in perhaps 35 something?

So you might lack a bit of company for the aim you have.

Also, you have to be lucky with it not being a scorcher, and also windy from the flat open lake setting!

Have often thought a proper competitive 5k round that route would be perfect, but there only seem to be those bootleg no standard, ultra expensive rubbish ones put on by mercenaries.

Does anyone else not use a training plan?

Not at all Ric, that's been in place for at least 9 months now

I think the "joke" comment has arisen as TD43 has a history of writing a lot of threads about "what's a good time for...." and getting a bit over focused on endings rather than details.

Do I think for one minute TD43 will taken on board the advice we've given on here?

Not at all.

Come on Dunney, are you making those assumptions off 3months running, and a miniscule amount of mileage?

The difficulty you'll find, is when you stop improving, and have to actually do a good amount of miles, and work harder. THEN is when structure is pretty key to reduce, and I say reduce not stop, the chance of injuries.

Agreed Ric, things often don't work as expected, but usually the reward comes down the line.

Inspired by Dach's feat last night, i found my normal morning 6mile route coming out the fastest it has done at dead on 7min miling. Which felt good as 3/4 of a mile starts on a fairly sharp hill and ends through offroad and woods. Starting to feel that a return to proper training isn't too far away...patience though
