With the injuries seemingly behind us, attention is now shifted to pulling something out of 2013 and what the tergat will be for MCKEP. After weighing up a number of offers from various race organisers, we decided to instead pay a quite expensive entry fee to enter one. The decision has been made for us to attack Leeds Abbey Dash 2013, home of two PB’s for MCKEP in previous years.
In the meantime I will be running a half marathon effort at the Wirral Half Marathon which sounds like it will be an odd event with a sand section and a 10k being run within the half, ideas of a PB were quickly quashed. With no idea of what the field will be like who knows what will happen here.
With those tergats in mind we have our 8 week plan beginning tomorrow with a circa 70 mile week including some 1K reps off 2 minutes, a 6 mile tempo at 5:35, a 2 hour time on feet run and perhaps a run out at Rugby 10. Running a ten mile tempo at what would probably be circa 5:30’s in the same week of a tempo may be interesting…
