Warning! This is a marathon free thread.
I've been running nearly two years, I'm 54 in three weeks time and my current 5k PB is 27:22. My goal this year is to get it under 25 - and long term, well, although I may collapse in a nasty heap trying, I am going to aim for the holy grail of sub 20. If I ever get there this would give me an age graded score of 90% ie world class, so you can see it's, hmm, somewhat unlikely. But hey a girl can dream. Oh ok if you're going to be pedantic about it - a middle aged woman can dream.
I have been told I have a bit of basic speed and now I really need to get the miles in. Sigh. I would much rather do intervals than Long Slow Runs. Which at my age may well make me a bit of a freak around these parts.
Mileage for the past 3 weeks: 28, 27.5, and will be 28 or 29 by this afternoon. I have never managed this before and am wondering whether to go for another 28 plus next week or to drop back a bit.
Anyone care to join me on a new training thread? (Get me - Training thread!)
OK PAMMIE DON"T LET ME DOWN!
