Whats the best range of distances for reps to get quicker over 5k? Is anything over 1k helpful? Also what kind of volume should the session be, 5k? Or less?
Cheers Scott interesting sessions - do you never work under 5k pace?
Thanks scott they look like good sessions I will let you know how I get on. Current PB is 18.04 (parkrun) and I'd love to be mid-17s this summer! Is there any benefit in 200m reps or are they too short?
Thanks scott I'm ok with core work and tempo, just need some regularity in my speed work. Will start with the 400s in the week and let you know how I get on
How'd the sessions go?
Knee injury suffered over xmas flared up again Monday so been resting up and cycling! Cant string more than 2 weeks together at the moment. Cycling is fun, but don't get the same satisfaction as running! Gonna give it another week and start easy running I hope
Really hard with setbacks! Had it looked it?
1st run in 3 weeks today - got alot of stick for it and pushing harder than I should have. Ran to feel though but now its 2-3 easy/steady weeks for me then re evaluate and see how I feel
Hoping it settles down for you. I used to love cycling when out with a mate but on your own I find it a struggle..
I saw that - take it easy would be a shame to ruin your rehab and patience so far
Physio said it was a minor tear where my inner quad meets the knee (can't remember the technical term lol) both times its been after running XC which is a shame as I love it!
I will do!
I love XC too!
The tear sounds like it's in a very nasty place! If its reoccurred I'd be tempted to get second opinion and also see what I can do to prevent it... But positive side were heading into track season
