1K - 3:33.1 / damper @ 7
10 min treadmill (medium incline walk)
1K - 3:27.3 / damper @ 10
5 min treadmill (light flat walk)
1K - 3:37.6 / damper @ 3

Pulled a 50K two days ago so I didn't want to overdo it.

Right ankle was felling tight before the workout but now feels fine. Go figure..

10K@1:52.9 (TIME=37:39.9, RPE 8.5/9 out of 10)
Immediately felt good, pleased with that as my ergo work has taken a back seat to weight training of late so I was unsure of my aerobic form but it's still clearly around PB level, saw mainly 153s but only stepped things up with <1K to go so loads more there. Be interesting to see if the weights and extra bulk starts paying dividends - I am consistently >73kg now, up from 71kg for ages, and crucially that ain't fat. Anwyay, WEIGHTS later...oh and I turned 46 today. :o

Was planning on a half marathon last night and ended up feeling bad all day. Scrapped that plan!

Did 4K (UT1 toward the end) @ around 2:06/23 SPM. Felt good enough with that. I'm planning on starting the PP Sunday, so I'm OK with a bit of an easier week. Been averaging heavy meters for the last 5 months. I think at this point taking one and a half days off shouldn't affect me too badly.

Happy B-Day Gammo!

2000m - 7:58.6 - 1:59.6 - 19
4000m - 7:59.7 - 1:59.9 - 19

10000m - 8:03.2 - 2:00.8 - 20

Very pleased to simply have finished this given my recent performance. Annoyingly my heart rate monitor seems to have given up the ghost so I have no idea what my heart was doing during this.

Today:
Not up to scratch. 6×1500m alt r22 and 26 at 5k +4 and 5k splits respectively. Absolutely rubbish.
The average was 3.4 splits higher than the last time I did this. Average 1:58.6. Not happy, and it was a struggle just to get through without a HD. I'm not sure what was wrong but I think it was the remenants of a cold just lingering. Not sure if that should have made me that much slower.

Oh well weights tomorrow and then I can't train on Thursday at the club so I'll take a rest. If I feel up to it I'll go ahead with the 30:00 I had planned for Friday. Hopefully I'll be fully recovered.
What would be your suggestions for pacing a free rate 30:00?

@Stu, scrawny, Mike - appreciate that guys.... ;)

(some years away from 50 though - now that one sounds crazy but when it happens it'll probably not seem a big deal just like 30 and 40 weren't!!)

@ Tom. Feed off the progress. You finished it and that's all that matters. Another layer of mental strength has been added.

@ Scott, no idea about pacing as you don't feel great at the moment. What were you aiming for when you last did something similar? Aim for that pace and take a decision about 10 mins in as you'll know by then how it all feels.

I'm sure the others will give you better considered advice!

Yep. Told my inner chimp to bugger off a few times, useful tip that.
