Yup I'd recommend hot yoga too - the "hot" bit makes it feel like a work-out! Made a big difference to my balance/ stability...
I didn't do much shorter racing, but I did PB at 5k, did my first 10k only a few secs per mile slower than the 5k, breaking 44m, and that HM target is 6 mins off my PB from 3 years ago...
FRC yeah, I think I'll put some 10k races in this time around - I'm still basing the schedule "broadly" around P&D, and they have a few shorter races the day before the LSR to get you used to the "running on tired legs" thing.
I had toyed with the ideas of doing "Insanity" circuits...but then again I need to find the time / enthusiasm...
Forum 6? Couldn't take the pressure...
hey circuits work, 30-40 second intervals, lots of them.., improve your VO2max. cant go faster unless you build your legs up.
I usually do one on a Saturday then club intervals about 45 minutes later. If you can do intervals on tired legs then .... Hadn't noticed the P&D race before an LSR, interesting.
Bet you could do Forum 6.
