Can anyone advice, i'm training to do a 10k in september, how much training is required for this , i'm currently running 3 times a week, any tips??
Thank you for the recommendation, Yet i'm not subscribed to the magazine and unsure if i can get the training schedules any other way..
Thank you for your e-mail and advice.. Its my first 10k since i started Running back in January , I Have done many 5k and averaging anything from 26-30 minutes per race, which is 8.3 mins per Mile ( I think) I Run 6.3 miles last night and it took me about 65 mins, ( not to scale) As i'm rather New to this running game i'm learning to improve as i go along.. i'm also running with a club which gives me that extra training and discipline!! i'm looking for that extra advie
Wyn the next question is what do you want to achieve? You have already proved you can run the distance. If you just like the running and you are not too competative then carry on as you are if you are enjoying it. You will get round.
However if you want to get faster then I would suggest you look at building your miles up. Do at least one run a week longer than 10k, and try to increase this over time. Do it slowly though.
As Moonlight suggests after a while add in a speed session each week. Intervals are good.
Then a third run - dont go as far as the long run but maybe do it a bit faster. You could pick a hilly course for this or add a fartlek section to the run. But dont consider this until you have a reasonable milage base in your legs.
Search on this forum for training plans there are loads about or have a look at the smart coach thingy on the right hand side of this page.
Speak to the coach at your running club he or she might help you develop a plan.
Thank you for the advice its great to get an opinion from elsewhere.
Not really to sure what i want to achieve that maybe sound sad i know, But i enjoy it
Thanks again for the advice also taking time out to advice me.
cheers for the link to!
