“…Since stepping up my mileage to 15-20 mile runs for the long run session over the past couple of weeks I have noticed a massive change. Was out last night to do 8 miles of hard hills. Did that in record time and at the end felt as fresh as a daisy.
Not sure if it just coincidence that the hard work is now paying off or the Hornet Juice!! Or combination of the both is more probable. When trained for marathons in the past hill work has always been the killer and really struggled with them and the long runs. Yet my times are on average nearly a full minute ahead of previous marathon miles per minute pace.
Only 10 weeks to New York Marathon and Liverpool Marathon 4 weeks before that.
In the circumstances think I best order myself some more Hornet Juice !!!”
