I'm doing a 10k in April, hoping to crack 50mins. I was wandering if anyone here has followed this RW Training Plan? What were your results?
I'm essentially a greenhorn; having run sporadically for about 8 months, but I have been doing more quality runs in 2012. My 5K best is currently 23:33. This will be only my second 10k, my first was way back in August and was more of a "can I actually run 10k" situation, I jogged it in 65mins.
I'd be interested to find out too. I have 5 weeks to my next 10K event so will try this one from next week (this week's going to be tricky as I have lots of travelling and early starts / late finishes)
I'm only doing around 15 miles a week at the moment, 3 hard sessions, I've been neglecting the long\easy runs . Started putting that right tonight, 8 easy miles done.
IKFY - Life does keep getting in the way, best laid plans and all that. I might have to take out one of the easy days and do 4 runs a week instead of 5.
I think I'm going to modify this slightly, do the short intervals on Tuesday, make Wednesday a rest day, do the longer intervals or hill work on Thursday, use Parkrun as a tempo run on Saturday, and do the easy runs on Sunday.
Just did 2 12k easy runs this week, will start this next week.
I did 3 12ks last week Mon, Thur, and Sunday; Thursdays was a bit of a slog, but a think it was because I had had a large meal less than 2 hours before. Pace was around 6:20 min/km, Sundays was a bit quicker, legs just wanted to go faster.
My Parkrun was a steady 24:51, don't think I could keep that up for 10k at the moment though! How has your running week gone?
It is the Titanic I am targeting.
