Just tell me how far to run tonight

I will keep this simple. I'm not following a training plan and right now I don't know how far or how fast to run tonight and I need somebody else to tell me what to do. Can someone just decide for me based on the following information:


  • I'm running a 50kin the Lakes in just over 2 weeks time
  • I've done big-ish LSRs 3 out of the last 4 Saturdays
  • I don't have any easy access to hills or off-road as I live in central London
  • My typical weekly mileage at the moment is 40-50
  • I don't have any blisters, stiffness or injuries
  • I've got dinner ready to go in the fridge and don't have any other life-admin to sort out this evening


So yeah, just tell me what to do and I'll go and do it. Thanks.

    I suggest you find a local parkrun to tryimage

  • Ideally there will be a compromise between 5k and running to Norwich, but I can't think of one right now.

  • I think you should do 10 miles at an easy-ish pace. Now can you tell me what to have for tea? I can't decide.

  • Steak and ale  pie, chips and  mushy peas. toffee sticky pudding with ice cream for pudding!

  • Reheated chinese takeaway, extra soy sauce on top, out of date tirimasu for afters.


  • I've got a chicken and ham pie I could have with some runner beans, will that do?

    No such thing as out of date tiramisu if you put enough booze in it in the first place.
