That's something I've spent ages trying to work out and am still not sure. I was going flat out - that's not good. 'Comfortably hard' is better, a more knowledgeable runner who knows the exact distance (I rarely do) might calculate it so you're running at the pace needed to finish an x km event in y time.

Stick to comfortably hard and you're doing OK.

yes I find it difficult to judge how fast to go!
Your speed training is working very well for you IMO so I'm thinking of trying the 800m intervals now!

I've slipped onto page 2 for a good reason...no training. I've not felt good, nothing seriously bad but I felt tired, mild aches, sleepy, and wishing I could be nastily ill for a short time not with a mild niggle for ages.

Today I went out on to the moor with the dogs and youngest son and got things moving. Came home and ran a very slow 3 miles I about 33 mins, just to do a run. A few hindu press afterwards. I thik I'm ready to get going again.

well done for getting back into it, sorry to hear you've been feeling rough!
And 3 miles in 33 minutes isn't slow! (not for me anyway!) :D

Friday 14th
8min hard, 2 min rest x 4 reps.

It's been nearly 3 weeks since I did a serious run, and that included missing two events I'd actually got an entry for. Not so fast but about as I'd been expected, so I'll be back where I was in good time.

No, not quite

Thursday, stayed late at work so went for a run about 4:30. Did 2 ins hard, 1 easy x 10 while getting lost in the city park that is a lot bigger than it looks on the map.

Would sugest 8 minutes moderate and the 2 minute parts fast..

this way you can give yourself this extra push..

8 minutes fast can be pretty long as well..

good luck!!!

Thanks Runner, I think it's good to get variety so will try that as well.
