Like a tempo run mid-week? Been thinking I should try and get a faster than normal run in mid week myself - gradually work up to say 30 min sandwiched between proper warm up and cool down mileage.
It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
Interesting. This tells me more miles are needed as well for my May marathon (first). My long and easy runs have been 9:04 to 9:30 or so and McMillan nails that based on my only 5K (23:10). McMillan says I can run a 3:45 marathon which seems agressive to me but we'll see where I'm at in March or so after many more miles.

McMillian, for a buddy of mine, is spot on (within seconds). For me, not as much, but in the ball park..

No, I do want to drop at least 10 minutes do you think that is out of the question?
