Well I think I'm running everything too fast but I'm trying to slow down. Bought myself a new Garmin with pace alerts to help me train in the correct pacing zones. But my first run with it yesterday I did a 6x800 interval session at roughly 7:15mm with 45 second recovery (roughly 9mm) but at the end I was dead! Is it just I've been training too easily to date or is this pace too fast?
My current LSR pace is about 9mm and this is comfortable for about 16 miles, my longest run today is 18 miles and the last 2 at this pace was very hard
I'm looking to complete Lock Ness marathon in 3:45. Have a hill half PB of 1:40:32 (last Sunday at Wycombe) a flat half PB of 1:37, parkrun 5k of 21:23. Haven't done a 10k so my fastest 10k is 45.05 the first 10k of my half PB
According to McMillan running my paces should be:
Easy: 8:05 - 9:05
Long runs: 8:08 - 9:24
Recovery: 9:11 - 9:52
Intervals: 7:07 - 7:24
Tempo: 7:14 - 7:32
Steady: 7:32 - 7:53
Do those times look about right? to my unprofessional eye they just seem a bit fast for a 3:45 marathon.
