Feel a bit achy today which isn't surprising given my lack of faster running in the last 6 weeks or so.
If I finish a meeting early enough I'll try and get a recovery run in, but main plan is spin later.
well done on the club comp outcome from the Abbey Dash, Dr Dan. I follow McMillan running on facebook and they often post little insights and one I recall is that if your mara time stagnates spend a cycle training for a shorter distance then return to it. Any improvement to threshold etc should carry through to mp if properly trained.
JGAV I do like a 10 miler. Its a bit like a half without the painful last 3 miles. Based on wava and McMillan paces whenever I renew my 10 mile pb it is always my strongest distance. I have one 4 weeks sunday.
Heading back towards normal training now with 5 miles easy and spin yesterday and then 8 miles over lunch today.
Good work Dan - I am always slightly jealous of those who can run to work. I can't for two main reasons - distance (I would have to do 10 miles each way) and lack of changing/showering facilities at work. 12 weeks sounds like a good training block.
JGav - do you feel like you have got your mojo back at all after the runs you had recently where it felt like hard work?
DT - are you base training now, or have you begun a new marathon plan?
I'm working on eating more today (a hardship I know!) and hoping that tonight's tempo run goes ok. I am then planning a short run on Friday to make up for the miles lost in yesterday's shortened run.
What's the plan/target, jgav?8 mile hilly but easy mlr tonight. Pace v hr is returning to pre mara levels now.
Good luck on Sunday JGav.
I also have a race on Sunday (10k). The aim is for something around mid 43's, but definitely aiming for a pb (43:49). Plenty of lurgy going around the office this week though which is annoying!
Have had 2 whole days off so far this week, but am planning a short tempo-ish session this evening with just a couple of miles at planned race pace (7mm) to give the legs a quick freshen up. Then it is easy paced mileage through to the weekend.
