running (running) 45:00  5.8 mi (7:46 / mi)
The pain in my legs did not worsen during the run, but from an effort perspective that was exceptionally high. However post run the my legs felt more flexible and less painful.
Thank you for the email, and the update to the training programme. I think to do an easy run has contributed to the recovery, despite the actual run being so painful.
A question I have about the progression run you have set for this Sunday ( 4th Feb). You have put down the paces for the progression run. However, I am wondering with my marathon target for this spring, (specifically in light of the sort of time I would like to target), how these paces help get me towards that goal? In short, if at no point during the progression run do I hit the target marathon pace, how can I ever get comfortable running at that marathon pace?
