couple of questions:
what is ur current pb for a 10k
where is your rest day??????????
Have a read of this thread
Moraghan Training - Stevie G
The guys on there are a little bit quicker but you get a great ideas for training sessions.
Hi guys thanks for the reply my PB are the following i've only ever done 2 10k runs but they are 45mins for the first and 43mins for the second.
I know my routine is a bit tough but im hoping some of you experienced guys can guide me in the right direction.
Cheers maxpower i'll check it out.
Trixeepoo sat tend to be a rest day as i spend it with the wife other than that not that much.
Agree with the other try and fit a rest day in, if I were you I would take it on a saturday but do the park run once a month to test your progress and on that week knock the session on a thurs down a notch. The other session i would reccomend is a tempo run of between 20 & 40 mins at 10mile or HM pace, as 10km needs speed endurance as well as speed, and your sessions are all about speed.
Looking at your previous times you should crack 40 and quite soon
Been running for about 3+ years but i played football for about 10yrs
I'll cut down the runs and introduce some recovery days.
Is the sub 40 achievable though.
I went out tonight and ran 5.5 miles according to my garmin. This was my first run this week no am run.
Took me 42.42mins was a slow steady run miles are.
Mile 1 - 8.01
Mile 2 - 8.36
Mile 3 - 7.30
Mile 4 - 7.26
Mile 5 - 7.16
Mile 6 - 7.42 this was the half mile.
Is it wise to got out and do hill reps tomorrow morning knowing that im running tomorrow night which will be between 6/7 miles.
Cheers Millsy how far was your long run and what was you interval and hill session like.
Also what speed/distance was your tempo run and easy run.
Sorry for the questions just trying to get a decent stable running plan.
How did you find racing to gain your sub 40mins Millsy.
Hi Millsy sorry was just asking after your training when it came to race day how did you feel pace wise running sub 40.
Fit-running-cat im 32 been running for a fair bit now but just wanting to up my running but would like to get some structure so i though it best to post on here.
Some good feedback too.
Also dropping mileage for the few days before the race will probably help you massively (if you didn't do that already) as your schedule sounds quite tiring! Amazing what a fresh pair of legs can do.
What is your Parkrun PB?
