In light of these lofty w/kg threads, the more and more time that passes, the more i’m committed to this as my target for this year.
There must be a few here that have hit this already? How did you go about it?
Any other advice or sounding boards would be much appreciated.
The research has begun. I’ve got access to this great little Jack Daniels calculator and it’s shocking how much weight makes a difference! All i need to do is get to 68-69kg and i’m half way there!! Don’t think my wife is going to be so happy this summer if this plan comes off!! haha
I had problems with the race selector drop down, anyone else have that issue? (if you do you need to readjust the cells where the dropdown is getting the data from)
I need exactly 100 seconds to go under 1:15. I am thinking of targetting this next November at the same race, It is basically 7k up then 14 down.
My up was relatively slow last year as my achilles were on fire after 4k and that was even after trying to manage them by not pushing to hard. The 14 down though I was good and nay bad at going downhill on roads.
So I reckon I need to drop 60 seconds on the first 7k and then hope I can drop 40 on the last 14k. As I write this, that feels massive. Though I had done a 16:45k race 4 days before and some 200m reps 2 days before, so perhaps a bit of free speed there
