So my plan is to have a medium week this week of around 45-50miles and then an easy week week next week before the race.
My medium week will consist of the same sessions as a hard week but with a little less effort, just one run on Wednesday rather than two and a long run of no more than 10miles.
So tonight I was at the club for the Fartlek session. Derek gave us a session of 2min, 3mins, 5min times 3. I planned to aim at 80% effort rather than my normal 100%. If I got it right then I ought to be running about 4miles rather than the 5miles I normally aim for.
Here are my distances and pace for the 30min of on running ….
I’ve been tempted in the past … I’m entering your competition today 🙂
A rigorous cross-correlation between your splits on the Hardmoors 55, both race’s elevation profiles, a correction coefficient based on the expected weather and the position of the stars on the 24th April as well as the energetic content of an ounce of haggis leads me to bet with fairly high confidence:10:10:10
Best of luck!
