maybe. more effort is required in the snow i suppose but i thought to get quick, you need to run quick.
not complaining though.
maybe, but with the times you've been putting on the table who's to say that
those are some fast 400s. I suppose you're not doing many of each, but still...
Maybe it'll work if one or 2 of the sessions are fairly short as it sounds a couple of yours were. If they're block busting 7-8milers maybe not.
I think I had a couple of games last year, but I'm an all or nothing character. I fuel completely into what I do, and truth be known now I don't miss playing, the kind of nasty people you get or any of it. I find in running that you 99% of the time get the result that you deserve, whereas in football I'd perhaps enjoy/ be satisfied say 1 game in 5.
Risk of injury doesn't make it worth it to be honest.
Having said that it leaves me free to watch loads more live games which pleases me.
I played at the lowest level, and was always the fittest player on the pitch, so when I arrived at games to find the team boasting about their wanton lifestyles and nights out, or smoking at half time I realised It was a bit of a waste in football at that level. The running is a sport you're 100% rewarded for staying disciplined.
The more my running came on, the less brave I was on the pitch both in tackling and at running with the ball!
I would say snow training is a bit like hills. Working different muscles to keep a solid base and balance plus the extra effort involved for a given speed will pay off in extra speed on a regular surface. Anyone else got any thoughts on this?
I value my knees and ankles too much to play contact sports these days. Even a game of squash takes me out of running for a couple of recovery days. In comparison running, biking and hiking are pleasantly pain free.
Hi Sawney, forgot I dipped into this thread on the first page and forgot to hang around.
My main goal this year is a sub 30 minute 5 mile. I got close the other year with 30.33, but had a crap year last year and loads of races were in the extreme heat. Got a PB at the end of Feb of 38.38 for 10k and got Close to my HM PB in March with 1.25.50, so an encouraging start to the year.I was traig for amrarthon and I think the overall amount of running helped.
Any advice on cracking a sub 30 time? I think in previous years I have neglected endurance in the summer and I think concentrated more on the speed with the weekly mileage suffering.
