    good Lactate Threshold 4m @ 15k/13... 4.05 mi 00:27 06:39 pace

    Back to the speedwork & an LT session over 4 miles. The plan was to hit 15k/13.1m race pace. Given I want to PB at 13.1 in October, I need just under 7:00 miles to do so, so thought I would aim... read more

  5. RUN
    great MLR & to the Poppy Field (11m) 11 mi 01:32 08:21 pace

    Despite a chill wind making it feel more like mid-Autumn than late Summer, my return to double-digit mid-week runs went well this morning. Once I'd warmed up over the first 2 or 3 miles I rela... read more

      That is quite a comparison Elliot, really exciting to see improvement like that. I want to get to Tower of London too, quite a fitting display.

      Thanks guys! @Jennifer - I think you're right; I seem to have retained a large amount of fitness from the spring marathon cycle which means my base is much better this time around. NY is not really a goal race - just for the experience. I had a goal 1/2m race in October which I really want to PB at.

      Sounds like you're busy with the new house Elliot. Decorating is tough work. I'm sure you'll get the route right soon... Glad you weren't wearing red today - nice miles :))

      Great run Elliot. I always struggle on runs where I'm not completely sure of the route I'm taking, I hope some nice new routes come together for you, cows are quite unnerving to be around, not sure why hehe. Good luck with getting all your DIY done!!
