Thanks Ed,

I recovered from gastro and did the parkrun 5k in 21:48.

The first kilometer I was trapped amongst the walkers but made up lost time.
I'm not sure how faster it would have been.

Do I stick with the Sub 50 training plan for the next 9 weeks (3 x 3 week cycles, I completed 1x 3 week cycle) or do I go down to Sub 45 or Sub 40 training plan as I find the sub 50 plan - long tempo intervals and 5k pace run very easy?

Would I use this parkrun 5k as a time trial indicator of my long tempo intervals 2k and 1k and move to the faster plan or stay on Sub 50 for the next 9 weeks with comfortable, achievable medium pace running on the hard days?
