Just did 9 miles of that kind of run wot Jools said. 7:52 at an H.R of 117bpm. No real opportunity to take it any quicker due to slippery pavements, slippery roads, slippery park paths .... with this low HR what does this mean?? just one of those days.
Running Eye, she speaks sense. Jools produces fantastic results on the day, and not knackering oneself in training is the other very important point. I know plenty (including myself) who thought they did everything right, loads of tempo runs, long runs, leathering it, fantastic new half and 10k pbs in the build up, and after months of training I was past my peak and not able to produce my best at the marathon. In the last campaign I followed the little lady's advice method with higher mileage, but not so much leathering, more steady running. I got my marathon PB. This time I'm trying the same but with added 8 x London Heathside track sessions! Hoping this gives me the extra 2-3 minutes I need to squeeze myself under the sub3.
