Bet you don't fancy a 45/50 min fartlek on the treadie either Hipps!?!??! ;oP

Actually, result, that's Wednesday's session - tomoz is on the lash with old work colleagues!!!!
08/01/2007 at 19:16
no way
I can hardly plod as it is
speedwork would not be a good idea
08/01/2007 at 19:18
Not much good at it myself at the mo but getting better - slowly (if that's not a contradiction in terms!!!)
08/01/2007 at 19:19
kaz - you are going to do a fartlek session the day after a night on the lash.
You are a better woman than me.

Well when I say 'night on the lash' I'm almost certainly just gonna be on diet coke!! Still paying for the Chrimbo excesses of drink and diet!

I love intervals. What have you got planned for tomorrow. 200s are my faves but then they would be wouldn't they?

I probably need to do more LONG intervals - 1k or 1mile - as I feel it's my speed endurance that's lacking.

You could try the sesh I did on Saturday which was 3 x 1.25m (at c5k pace) with a wee upper body circuit (bicep curl, front raise, tricep kickbacks x 30 x 2) in between.

am i being daft
or a mile long intervlas really for mara training????????
08/01/2007 at 20:08
400m intervals are bloody long enough.
08/01/2007 at 20:39
mmm best length for intervals. That's an interesting one. I think it's good to do lots of different ones. Stops you getting bored and challenges the systems I guess.

A 5k race is 93% aerobic - as opposed to a 100m sprint which is only 8% aerobic. A marathon is 99% aerobic. Only part of the story I know but you can see that a 5k still needs loads of endurance as much as pure speed.

Hipps - I'm SURE you know all this!

I have done mile intervals at track sessions with my club. I think I only managed three last time I did them. But they are encouraging because you get to thinking: just need to string three of them together and put a lap type sprint at the end and whoops there goes a billion kilowatt dam. I mean whoops there goes your PB....

sorry - being dim. Do you mean 125 metres or 1.25 k (ie nearly a mile) and what's a front raise? Is all that at a gym?

Do you do much upper body work?
08/01/2007 at 20:58
have you tried the Cobra for your present problem, that may get to it.

ice on the quads has helped.

Running any intervals whatever distance, is good.

No 1.25 miles. Front raise is where you lift the dumbbell straight up in front of your body (straight arm). Do most of my intervals/fartlek at the gym at the mo altho' hopefully once I've joined my trainer's club I'll have access to a track at last.

Just back from the gym. X-trainer and row (sprint intervals - hard work!) and some upper body work. My right arm's a wee bit sore again which is a pain.
08/01/2007 at 21:43
Respect due babe! You are a serious girl. I do not like the rower or the xtrainer for that matter. To tell the truth the only thing I like doing in the gym are sprint drills and stretching (where i get to show off) Everything else leaves me a quivering jelly wreck. But I do go.

So are your 1.25 intervals on the treadie then?
Is the groin strain injury still affecting you?

I see from your profile you've been running 5 -10 years. And obviously still improving if your 5k PB was as recent as last September. That's encouraging for the likes of me although I am more than ten years older than you...

What's your running history? I like people's stories.
08/01/2007 at 21:45
sharkie i'll be doing 8 x 200metres, then i'll alternate between 200s and 400s each week

don't know how that posted twice.

Yum - 200s! Let us know how they go. Are you now on with the second wek of the plan?
