Alehouse - I am planning another couple of 8.5 mile LSRs (yesterday's took 76.30) and then I've pencilled in at least three 9 milers. I have also got a couple pencilled it at 8 miles, but including 2 or 3 miles at MP rather than LR pace. Hopefully that covers it all! Large parts of my LSRs are off-road at the moment too, and fairly hilly. Still drawing a blank on stretches though, I'm afraid to say!
Sounds like you are making decent progress. Beware the niggles though!
No, all my runs are solo runs. I don't mind it actually, it allows me some peace in amongst a busy life!
Two days rest and I am now looking forward to my session tonight. Stretching the tempo block to 3.5 miles, which is where it will stay for a couple of weeks before increasing to 4 miles nearer race day (and possibly 4.5 miles for one session if I'm feeling good).
DT - interesting with the 10 x 1k threshold session. Do you think this has more benefit than a shorter continuous threshold run? I suppose you get more volume in.
5 mile recovery planned for this afternoon/evening.
Jgav - hope all is good? Have you managed to venture out for a run yet at all?
DT - next scheduled race isn't until the beginning of April. My plan has 6 more full training weeks, and 3 cutback/taper weeks. I'm currently training at the level that I normally reach at the end of my training block, so hopefully the extra weeks will help me to smash my pb (all being well!).
That Friday run looks heavy!
Well done JGav - how did the run feel?
Looks like this week is going to be one of those 'struggling to juggle runs around the manky weather and icy pavements' ones!
Andrew, for me there's scope to get a couple of parkruns in there if life allows. Will give you a proper idea of where you are at, a good training effect and racing is just fun as well.
J'gav, in times of difficulty I always try and get something in every 2 or 3 days, even if it is just a few miles easy. If I don't run for a week, I ache loads during the first week back.
Session over lunch of 2m at hmp (90) 1mile at 10kp (3 mins) then repeat twice. First set at hmp possibly felt the toughest of them all. Possibly not fully warmed up, though I did go 2 miles. Reps came in-
6.19, 6.23, 6.05
6.09, 6.22, 6.05
6.13, 6.19, 6.09
I was pretty tired, wet and cold by the end I must say!
Sounds decent, Andrew. Wont be long and they'll be coming in sun 7mm.
It'll come back quickly enough, JGav. Just need to get over that initial hump!
12 miles last night at easy pace gave me 227 for January which is my highest ever by 9 miles. Good to month 1 of 4 of the vmlm training with a decent array of quality sessions in there as well.
Great mileage DT - don't know how you find the time (or energy!).
5 easy for me last night, took me to 92.5 for the month, which is the best month I've had mileage-wise since Feb 2016!
