However unfit you may be, that seems like a pretty decent training pace; it would kill me to go out every day at that speed. S'funny, cos when we were at college it was always me that was training at close to my racing speed, and you were the other way around - trundling along and then killing it in the races.

I'd hope my race pace is still a fair bit quicker than that! But it wasn't so much that the pace was really slow as that it seemed rather less fluent and more hard work than it ought to be - wasn't that long ago i would run faster for much further (not every day, of course)

Have you recovered from last Sunday?

Fair enough, it all seems pretty damn rapid to me!

I think I only pull my finger out for intervals or races. I'd better get down to the OCAC vets track sessions this year, which is what I intended last year before I got injured, see if I can work on that leg speed a bit. I do need to work on my cadence though.

Got a bit of post-marathon bloat, glad I decided not to enter anything this weekend. Tonight's run went OK, but reckon on at least a couple of weeks before I'll start to feel the benefit.
