Hey Njord Yep, that's almost exactly the wear pattern I have, but the worst of it, and where it comes right through, is literally under where the upper joins the sole. I noticed the same with the Green Silence, but find them uncomfortable around the ankles.
SL - snap on not being able to ease off in races; that's why I've only done one 20m 'race' as I'd bury myself too much otherwise.
Fair enough KD. It's more reasonable against a 2:50 target, but still a very solid pace, especially on what sounds like a hilly course. I do think there is a time and place for quicker long runs (ala Canova) but you wouldn't want to be doing too many or you'll leave your race in training.
TR - nicely done. I'll hopefully be doing something similar tomorrow, but might start with an 8 + 8. I'll see how the legs are in the morning. Good spot on Njord's fridge magnets
Padams - nice progression.
Nice mileage Dan.
6 + 10 for me. The 10 included track. Scheduled session was 5 x 1km (200 recs) + 3 x 400 (100 recs) - all supposed to be at HM pace. For me, right now, that should have been ~ 3:37 / 87.
Seems my legs are still not fully lined up with my current condition as I averaged 3:26 for the 1km (in theory not far off of 5km pace at present, but it didn't feel that bad), and then ran 81, 75 & 72 for the 400s. I was happy to stop at that to be far, but the idea of Wednesday track is that it is (by my usual standards) a light session, so perfectly bridges a bigger Mon/Fri long/session combo.
