I recently ran 1:20:38 for the Sleaford HM on the below weekly training(peak) and wondered what tweaks others would suggest to get under 80mins?
My peak weeks consist of 60mpw doing this
- 16 mile fast finish long run ( last 4 miles)
- 12 mile easy run
- 6 mile tempo at 6:10 - 6:20
- 8 mile alternating tempo at 6:20 and 6:40 followed by a 2hr rest then a hilly slow 8 mile run.
Another slow run of 8-10 miles
I was thinking of adding a 40min long hill repeat session the day before the long run to improve things. If I go much faster on the tempos with the mileage/ fatigue in my legs I feel like I stop running at my LT pace and start running anerobically and sometimes get stitches etc.
