At the start of this year, I planned to run a few Half Marathons. I entered 3 and ran the first one in early Feb, before Covid really got going. The second one I ran as a virtual event and the third one I deferred until next year. At the start of (the first) lockdown I realised that organised running events were going to be very unpredictable. So I changed my goal to: run 2020 miles in 2020. My previous best being 1633 miles in 2013. It is now mid-November and I'm on course to reach my goal, but I'm also pretty 'washed-out.' I have now turned again to the 'Run/Walk/ Run' method to help me. I now feel confident of reaching my goal and I'm starting to get a bit of 'Bounce' back into my legs.

Thank you. Run/walk/run is brilliant. Don't know why I don't use it all the time !

I don't use it for shorter runs but if I think I'm going to be out for much more than an hour I do.

I surprised myself yesterday with an 11.35 km run walk - longest distance since a race way back in February. Not been near that distance in months. Running with a mate 2:30/ 1:00 and expecting to be out for an hour in, 7 or 8 km. But we were blethering and in the main going really slowly (46 minutes parkrun pace) and the distance just ticked by.

Feeling surprisingly fine today, though a very long bath may have helped with this :-) An interesting point: he has been running more often (and 50% faster) but just 3 or 4 miles. Over the piece, my HR graph (allowing for run/walk variation) was pretty level, whereas his trended steadily upwards, although from a comparatively very low start point.

Good work Dvorak :-)

No idea about the HR trends.

Well done Dvorak. Looks like you have not lost endurance fitness.

Got something to say?
