As the title of my thread suggests, my goal is to run a sub-60 10 mile race at Ballycotton in March 2012 and win a top 100 finishers t-shirt.
PB's in a few different distances are:
5 mile 28:45
10 mile 60:55
Marathon (Dublin 2010) 3:14 [training disrupted by injury]
Height: 6’ 4”
So, training so far:
Sunday, 6th Nov – 11.3 miles, 8:10 pace; average HR 164
Nice easy run around the Phoenix Park to re-introduce my legs to running after a 3 month gap. Went with my brother in-law and pregnant sister! Ideal weather – sunny and mild.
Thursday, 10th Nov – 7.14 miles; 7:02 pace; average HR 177
I intended to take this run at a steady pace but as it turns out I’m more unfit than I realised and a steady run is too hard at this stage. Picked up the pace as the run went on, not because I felt good, the opposite actually, and really needed to get to the end before I flaked out. HR reached 191 for the last bit! Still, it gives me an idea of the work that needs to be done.
