I'm actually quite excited about the mile TT races on the track in July as well!! Very Happy

Pushes the point i keep telling all my friends that look for advice etc ... at our level, you've got to do what you enjoy. If you're not having fun, don't bother!

Am i giving up a couple of percentage points on each event by not focussing? Absolutely. Does it make a difference if i come 9th or 10th in a local 5km? Absolutely not. Do what you enjoy, and that'll count for so much!

Last year I pb'd at 100 miles and then 1 mile in 10 days Smile

But the main reason I pop onto this thread is to mention I took the easy option of finding a flat Parkrun recently and lowered my pb to 17:26. It still had 2 dead turns and was on the back of 130k in the previous 6 days so I expect there is more reduction available somewhere...

Good stuff YKK. Dead turns in short races are a real killer!

Good to see more activity on here (definitely more of a summer thread) and seems like a few people getting their mojo back Smile

It was a Parlov session so I was running with whatever rest my partner allowed me to have! Think I averaged about 80s recovery


Although this is a quality (and fun) session...if you were to run 'off' a certain time you will be able to learn to accurately control your pace as well as gradually reduce the interval...

If you can run 68s off approx 2:30s you should be able to gradually reduce that interval down towards 2 mins.....it may mean running slightly slower initially to compensate for the reduced recovery, but it would be an excellent 4 - 6 month target


At our club back home (back in the day!) our middle distance group used to do 200m Parlaufs in pairs, but starting halfway down the straights, meaning a recovery jog across the middle of the track before your buddy completed the run. Probably meant just over 30s active recovery.

Think we only did 6 each but with the short recoveries it meant the whole thing was over very quickly and was good fun. One of my favourites.

Not one for the summer since there were Javelins about
