Good speedwork session last night, my pace has definitely improved as I tried using the Forerunner 310XT to manage the tempo interval for a change (I normally just count the miles) and the pace alarm was just going off continuously for going too fast! However I think that is more to do with the way the Forerunner calculates the pace average and when you’re speeding up & slowing down all the time it takes a while for the average to settle – either that or I’m not programming it correctly (highly possible!).
Supposed to do an easy 5 miler tonight but got home and fell asleep! I think I need an early night so I may just get up early and do it then. I’m trying to pack in a couple of extra sessions at the moment – the runners world training calculator can’t really cope with such a short time between marathons so I’m having to improvise a bit at the moment until they fall into a regular pattern from March.
