Great running Lee what’s next on the cards?

Seems like we have a few in for London who aren’t quite where they want to be but at least we get to enjoy the experience.

After a 5k parkrun pb on Saturday I’m maybe not in such bad shape after all. Leaves me wondering what pace to go for at london 🤷‍♂️

I’ve been roughly following the jack daniels I’ve life plan but this Sunday’s run seems a bit nuts. 2 weeks out from the marathon it wants 22 miles with

6@mp
1@tempo
6@mp
1@tempo

Anyone else think this is a bit much 2 weeks out?

Really sorry to hear that Rog. You were going well, until you weren't...

Chris, that looks a bit like a turbo-charged version of the 15@mp that I do in my JD plan, except I do it 3 weeks out! I wonder if there's a calendar issue - the big run is day 1 of the week for me.

That would be too much for me and I generally think that I recover well Chris, but I never do sessions so am probably not the best person to comment. I'd agree with jda - would be a good three weeks to go session.

I’d do a long run 2 weeks out, I think I’ve done a fairly long one 8 days out and got away with it, but that’s just steady running.

My norm has been an easy 18 miles 2 weeks out so might reduce the distance and maybe reduced the amount of mp miles.

Got something to say?
