Got 4 miles in last night, to hit 21 for the week, which is the highest for about 6/7 weeks.
That 10 miler is a race I assume DT? Pb challenge?
yes that's an actual race. Not sure it'll be spectacular as I think my Autumn peak has passed now and I need to start building back up. jgav, odd time of year to decide to hit the bike work, unless you mean static bike stuff?
I see loads of people on the zwift app now via my strava. Excuse the stupidity but is it just a phone app or something?
5 x 800m session over lunch. No particular agenda, just realised I have not run faster than 7.45mm for over 2 weeks now so wanted to run fast.

Bikes (and apps for that matter) are a mystery to me!
6k in 30 minutes I can understand though!
No running the past couple of days here, planning a few miles tonight.
I get on well with running apps but some of these cycling apps do baffle me. The explanation above went largely over my head.
I did 5 x 800 yesterday over lunch and then a 4 mile recovery in the evening.
I was hoping to get out over lunchtime but its the usual final dash in work. Much like anything else in life, having things done before Christmas is as valid in law as it is with furniture delivery! I cant get out tonight so todays opportunity has passed by.
Interesting DT. Sheffield Castle was one of the ones of my list of possibles for 30 December, but I might give it a swerve now based on that link!
My runs over the past couple of days have felt awful, think I must be suffering with some kind of lurgy. Will try again this evening, but happy to keep the effort very low-level in order to just get the miles in.
Happy New Year all! Hope everyone had good Christmases.
Sounds like a tough one DT, so a good time in the circumstances. Good luck with the start of marathon training!
Bit like you JGav, I ended up doing very little over the last week or so, and intend to start afresh tomorrow evening with my usual Wednesday night run.
Need to do some actual training planning soon, as my 10k schedule is due to start next week!
well done both.
I managed an easy 10 miler on Tuesday and 6.5 yesterday. However I think I need a few days off as hip/ITB/upper quad feel a bit damaged. Feels like a strain so hopefully be ok after a few days.
Take it easy DT, better to start a slightly shorter mara plan fully fit than plough on and risk the whole campaign!
Thanks Gav. I think I could probably run something around 21 minutes for a 5k at the present time, so I just need to keep fit (easier said than done) and put a good few weeks of training in and see where that leads.
Speaking of which, the rest of this week is easy running before next week sees the start of my 17(!) week 10k plan before my target 10k in May. The intention is to do 4 cycles of 3 weeks hard, 1 week cutback, and then a final taper in race week.
I am planning a couple of 5ks along the way and a warm up 10k at the end of the third cycle of the training plan.
It is a shame that this thread now appears to have reduced down to 3 or 4 of us - perhaps we should amalgamate with the Overdone It thread and join DT over there!
Any lurkers, do come out and let us know how you are getting on!
