I have to say I am somewhat surprised looking at yesterday’s result. My time is about the same as a 10K race in December and only 20 seconds slower than a 10K race in January? Yes December was on very tired 100 mile + weeks for over a month [752 miles in November], and January was only two weeks after an ultra event, whereas this result is on very minimal mileage for a month but at least half a stone heavier.
|2015 WK 48||10km||Regent’s Park 10K||41.56|
|2016 WK 6||10km||Regent’s Park 10K||41.36|
|2016 WK 24||10km||Dame Kelly 10K||41.57|
Seems an interesting little formula / table could be made for ‘mileage-tired legs’ vs ‘carrying more weight’ in terms of expected race times. At present it appears that heavier is cancelling out the fresher legs, but only just. Certainly I should be able to break 40 minutes.
Today only time for a jog around the block.
