My pace. Yours is way too fast for me.
The party is over sad.gif We'll have to wait for 500 pages (shouldn't take us that long).

Yesterday, I went for what I call a long run these days (7.3 km). I returned to Friday's trails and hit "The Wall" again. Only this time I conquered it. I new what was coming and attempted it at a more moderate pace. One of reasons I failed on Friday was that I didn't know what was coming and tried to go up way too fast. Now I am enjoying a two days break before I will return to the track on Wednesday.

Do you think that the Montreal marathon can ever attain even a 1/10 of the registrants in the Tokyo marathon?

So far so good, the legs are not as fresh as they were last week but they are well otherwise.

Found a great marathon pace calculator site that factors in heart rate and incorporates a negative split strategy:

Have wonderful day

Roly: Just remember, MLC thought I'd never make the swim cut-off.

Remember, I also thought you'd never go sub-50 on 10k or even sub-25 on 5k... La-la-li... La-la-la..

She did go sub-25 for 5k (Triathlon des Iles)... off the bike... but then again tri distances are notoriously way off... especially that one (I ran it).

Guess she'll have to prove you wrong!

SS: You can do 23 easily.

And that was only a little over a month after I restarted training after my 2-month hiatus after that car accident.

I also did 1:55 for a half marathon once, and it was my 6th day of running that week, no taper, 'cause I didn't know what that was back then.

Chops, is your motivation service free, or does one have to pay for it? Where can I sign up? I hope this is not such a failure as your used car business biggrin.gif

I like the you'll-never-do-that approach to motivation.

The more someone tells me I suck, the deeper I dig.

I'd say mediocrity is the price of self-indulgence. Ta-ta-ta

Ralf: Self-indulgence = The repetitive demonstration of someone's ability to finish long-distance events, with insufficient training, in mediocre time for that someone's skills.

Is that someone still able to go sub-50 on 10k ?... The gift has been too much sacrificed.

But absolutely PHENOMENAL for the lack of training! banana.gifbanana.gifbanana.gif

It's all relative !!! biggrin.gif And especially not bad considering that 4 days before, I crashed into the back of a van and snapped my neck back and had to get a brand new bike. So there!

ya i remember my younger stupider days, ran a 28k long run on thursday, raced a half on saturday AM in brockville, then raced a 10k that evening in mtl... dumb and dumber...

quality over quantity, no?

I love you too, Sally. Even more when you make cakes (... **** erase my last phrase)


Chops: I misunderstood you. I thought you were saying that the price for your motivation service was mediocrity. So, I figured, if your motivation service would work, I wouldn't have to pay.

One day I will surprise you all and do a sub-14 hour Ironman (not ready for sub-13 yet!), sub-24 minute 5k, and a sub-4 marathon (or at least a PR!). Don't know about that sub-50 10k yet ... can I say *maybe* sub-52 10k?

Jeess, let me at least see if the orthotics will work first. roll_eyes.gif

Track workout yesterday was fun. On the menu: 2x5x300m (with a 2 min walk between reps and a 5 min walk between sets). Much to my surprise, I was able to run them faster than I thought possible and completed each repeat in just under a minute. It was fun going all out against PS in the final repeat as we exchanged a, "high 5" at the end of the workout.

All in all, it was a good workout. It feels like I'm on autopilot these days; as soon as I returned home, I ate, slept, woke up and ran for 1h15m with PS this morning. Overall, the morale is good and the body is holding up.

Three more workouts remain this week before the tapering begins.

Have a wonderful day.

TB
