Thanks for your recommendation to look at TJOHNOCONNOR's blog. We are dealing with similar issues. I noticed today, I was two pounds down from my five lb gain. It's hard to be discouraged with all of this good Spark support around here. Glenn 907 days ago
I keep flip flopping on the race for PR or use this race as a LSR for training purposes. The heat will most likely get the best of me, so I am thinking a training run. But I might pace the first 3 miles competitively, then I will decide whether to slow it down, or go for PR. My PR in 10K is 1:07, so this should be easily beat. I am not close to my big race, so I could go either way.
What do you think I should do? I have not really done many days speed training with intervals since March. I have been concentrating on changing my form to ChiRunning. I took my HM last month easy and did a PR.
