I never do any speed work...when training for a marathon just do lots of slow miles and have got faster over time.......i feel speed work for me leads to injury....sometimes i will do park runs to have a faster run

mmm.Surely you should mix it up a bit? getting the legs turning over quick and increasing heart rate is important for improvement?Not sure what Dave means

Once or twice per week. All year round.

Thought I was reasonably clear... I do speed work all year round

I thought you meant flat out every session all year round

When you do your speed 5-10k training what sort of training range do you expect your hear rate to be in?

I struggle to get mine below 77%, maybe it's a lack of fitness
