7 Miler done and new land speed personal records set!
Took the theory of focusing on bite size chunks of each mile (1/4 comfy jog, 1/4 faster, 1/4 comfy, 1/4 faster) and this is what happened...
Mile 1- 2:30, 2:18, 2:39, 2:09 Total 9:36
Mile 2- 2:32, 2:11, 2:45, 2:22 Total 9:50
Mile 3- 2:40, 2:19, 2:40, 2:25 Total 10:04
So thats 29:50 for 3 miles-first time ever under 30 mins! AVG pace 9:57
Mile 4-3:24, 2:23, 2:40, 2:30 Total 10:57 (1st section walked for a bit having a drink)
MIle 5- 2:41, 2:27, 2:54, 2:37 Total 10:39
so through 5 miles in 51:26 AVG Pace 10:17
and then right leg muscles at the back on the top (need to google muscles) started to feel really tight. Probably shock from the speeds so leisurely jogged out remaining two miles. Tiring session but think i'm going to continue with the strategy. It makes you think that every second and every step really does count...
Oh my gosh,,,,,,,,You did those first 5 in 51.11, and the plan was to do a 7M in 84 mins, so you had enough to make the last two mile go at 16:24 pace!!
This very really fantastic, BUT I am concerned that you may be go out too fast and could do serious damage, as this is exactly what I was like last year. The key to success I heard from people is to look after your body. If you feel great, then ignore those evil jealous snipes from me!
I beleive the schedule is made out to do one sppedwork on the tuesday, and the thursday and LR at the weekend are not build for speed. I leave it to the experts to take over if they think is neccesarily.
Did 5k run on the treadmill, followed by 30 mins on the bike last night. Now of the do the club run tonight with the additional 2.5-3 miles to get to the club house and back, then I will have to hang my running shoes unitl Monday.
There's something wierd in the air today MKT cos I broke my land speed record as well! Well done, but I echo Silburbas about being wary of too much speed. Would be interested to hear Bud's view though as what do I know LOL! My schedule said 1 mile slow warm-up, 3 miles fast then 1 mile slow cool down because today was my "speed" day. I think this training lark must be working. But did I understand that right - you played squash after a hard run??? On the same day???
take it easy with the calves
I can't do photos.but if you look on this runnersworld page..scroll down past the pretty pirates and you get to me at the bottom
I've just been reminiscing over the paris marathon i did back in 2009. A good friend made a video of it and i've just watched it back for the first time in ages. It made me feel so good i thought i'd share...
One of the best experiences of my life and one that i look back on and just smile.

Hope your having your porridge for our early run this morning.............off to check the schedule if i can find it to see what pace it says
see you soon.
I hope you haven't listened to a word they have said about me...
MKT - watched the Paris video...fantastic. good to see you training is going well..take care with those calves!
busy day here..........
just to say it was great meeting Matt..................no one had warned him that i don't stop talking
we had a lovely run in the dark.......................and if he carries on as he is I'm sure he will have no problems following the schedule....................when I left him at about 9 miles he looked fresh and ready to carry on longer no problems
Well done MKT and Seren sounds like you had a great run.
Another week's training in the bag - 3, 5, 3 and 7 miles in total so really pleased with that although not so sure about next week's 12 miler
Hi MKT - am following the Hal Higdon novice plan (yes, I know I've done 3 already but it fits my lifestyle). Week before last I ran 10 miles so normally it goes up a week or so and then every while drops back - this week was "only" 7 miles! 1/4 of a marathon - yeah!
Good luck with your week - look forward to reading your posts.
sorry Matt been tied up -- no not literally and now on big catch up.
you are doing superbly well.
how are calf muscles now?
Plans for this week?
Ok tuesday speed session in the bag ....
Was supposed to be following this 1m jog, then 2 x 2000m at 12:30 with 400m jog recovery, then 1m jog.
and here are the facts...
really comfortable warm up jog 11:42 not even close to being out of breath...
1 mile 9:06 + 2:20 for 1/4 mile = 11:26 for 2000 metres
1/4 mile recovery
1 mile 10:15 + 2:10 for 1/4 miles = 12: 25 for 2000 metres
then jogged it out for the last mile and 1/4 comfortably....and feeling really good and beginning to really grasp what speeds i am doing and how it feels to be doing a 9 min mile compared to a 10 and an 11. I feel like i've really turned a corner in regards to attitude towards the distances and are no longer eagerly wishing the end of each mile. I am especially pleased as this is on th eback of the cycling yesterday and i think the cross training is really bringing on my aerobic ability. I am going to go swimming tonight, for an hour, once the kids are asleep, to work on my technique.
good session Matt...........
next time try and get the last interval faster than the first.........
I have had a head cold since sunday night so am taking a few days off.........
have a good week
wow-good running MKT!!!!
well on the plus side i did all 3 prescribed runs last week even though i wason holiday but have eaten and drunk waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much but now back to the schedule and focus!!!
hope your all well!!
