Sense - I like that plan you put up y'day, you would do well off that. There is also teh option of putting in some shorter sharp reps late on too.
Stewart - sorry I missed a post from you y'day (and Sense) I blame it on skim reading on the train back from London. I said do P and D by the letter as against doing a P and D and BAC mix. You could do similar to Sense, but whwta you posted up y'day woudl be too much, a BAC session and a run with 6-10M of MP in it each week. I'm not a fan of doing MP running every week in long blocks (having only done it once myeslf this campaign ! ). You could include a shortish temp or some shorter (3min typs reps) but I tend to save them for the last few weeks myself. You and Sense still both have gains that can be made simply by running more strength miles (regular double digit, mlr etc) and lots of it needs to be easy paced too (maybe easier than some of the P and D stuff).
I typically pick up a calf strain somewhere along teh line in teh VLM build up and have got into teh habit of having my calves massages at the expo, as a belt and braces thing. So as I hadnt had calf issues, but have had a tight hammy I mentioned that, I didnt expect the release treatment I copped y'day, and to be fair I didnt feel as sore today as I had feared. So maybe they did actually know what they were doing.
My number for Sunday is 30641. Hopefully its one of the least exciting trackings.Cant remember what 2:54 pace equates to but hopefully it will be a nice steady track without any peaks or troughs.
