First HM coming up a week on Sunday and I'm looking for some advice about mileage in the week leading up to it. I haven't been following a plan but I know that it's advisable to rest during the week before.
I'm pacing at parkrun on Saturday at what I hope will be hilly HM speed and as parkrun is flat as a millpond that will equate to an easy 5k. Next Wednesday I will run with my club and there's an option to do 5k instead of the usual 10k for those doing the HM - they're speedy though so it will probably end up pacier than Saturday's run!
My question really is do I run Monday? This has been my long run day for the last couple of months as I go to work later.
So do I not run, run another steady 5k or a very slow 10k? Answers on a postcard please 😂🤣
