Follow the progress of Mustkeeptrying, our sub-5:00 hopeful
busy day here..........
just to say it was great meeting Matt..................no one had warned him that i don't stop talking
we had a lovely run in the dark.......................and if he carries on as he is I'm sure he will have no problems following the schedule....................when I left him at about 9 miles he looked fresh and ready to carry on longer no problems
Well done MKT and Seren sounds like you had a great run.
Another week's training in the bag - 3, 5, 3 and 7 miles in total so really pleased with that although not so sure about next week's 12 miler
Hi MKT - am following the Hal Higdon novice plan (yes, I know I've done 3 already but it fits my lifestyle). Week before last I ran 10 miles so normally it goes up a week or so and then every while drops back - this week was "only" 7 miles! 1/4 of a marathon - yeah!
Good luck with your week - look forward to reading your posts.
sorry Matt been tied up -- no not literally and now on big catch up.
you are doing superbly well.
how are calf muscles now?
Plans for this week?
Ok tuesday speed session in the bag ....
Was supposed to be following this 1m jog, then 2 x 2000m at 12:30 with 400m jog recovery, then 1m jog.
and here are the facts...
really comfortable warm up jog 11:42 not even close to being out of breath...
1 mile 9:06 + 2:20 for 1/4 mile = 11:26 for 2000 metres
1/4 mile recovery
1 mile 10:15 + 2:10 for 1/4 miles = 12: 25 for 2000 metres
then jogged it out for the last mile and 1/4 comfortably....and feeling really good and beginning to really grasp what speeds i am doing and how it feels to be doing a 9 min mile compared to a 10 and an 11. I feel like i've really turned a corner in regards to attitude towards the distances and are no longer eagerly wishing the end of each mile. I am especially pleased as this is on th eback of the cycling yesterday and i think the cross training is really bringing on my aerobic ability. I am going to go swimming tonight, for an hour, once the kids are asleep, to work on my technique.
good session Matt...........
next time try and get the last interval faster than the first.........
I have had a head cold since sunday night so am taking a few days off.........
have a good week
wow-good running MKT!!!!
well on the plus side i did all 3 prescribed runs last week even though i wason holiday but have eaten and drunk waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much but now back to the schedule and focus!!!
hope your all well!!
P.s Glad to hear you are back to schedule and focus!
Bad swim by your standards but your general fitness progress is just superb Matt
really well done. Fabulous that you are grasping the speeds required.
more you can improve 10km/10miles etc more you can cope easier ( ??) with marathon distance given that you also master time on feet concept ( which you will do)
how are the press ups coming on ?
up to 20 yet?
Great stuff Matt
25 by end of next week then you deserve some spinach !
