Nice work on the 20 miler mixed pace, Gul. Enjoy the break away.
SBD, coming into place nicely with those runs.
Congrats on the 100th parkrun, Poacher.
OO, good luck in the 10k.
I've put 2.47 on the London estimate, which is what it already was anyway from when I previously did it.
New York released their waves yesterday, 5 in total starting at 9amwit h the slowest runners starting at Midday. Apparently, as the clocks will have just gone back as well, sunset is about 4.45 so most starting at midday will finish in complete darkness.
I had standard 10m tempo on Friday. A little easier than recent weeks as it was a bit fresher with average pace 6.18mm for 160 bpm. First half in low to mid 6.20s then last 5 just sat pretty much on 6.13mm.
Session over lunchtime toroundoff what is already by far my biggest mileage month.
No need to remember anything, Speedy. Set up session in garmin connect then send it to my watch and just do what it says.
I notice also that August last year was the last month of noticeably reduced mileage from my stress fracture, so garmin tells me that my average weekly mileage for the last 12 months has been 48m. Not bad when you factor in peaks and troughs of training, tapering, recovering plus holidays etc.
TR, the target is 2.49 but I don't think 2.47 is wildly optimistic if all goes well on the day. Im really hopeful these waves work well so there's not the usual crowding on course and a clear run is possible.
Have you decided you'll run London then, or just keeping options open?
My Tuesday session has been gradually progressing last 3 weeks, but takes a step back next week before an 8 x 1m off 1 min session then 3 x 5k off 3 mins to round things off as a peak session.
Now it's about to become September I need to reign the summer partying in a bit as in places it's been too much. I'm only 3lb over Dorney weight though no not much required to hit race weight with 5 weeks to go.
Speedy, unfortunately we are the least interesting group of people to the tv cameras and what their viewing public wants to see.
