Male, 18. 6 weeks sounds a nice estimate to me but unfortunately I think it will be longer! Done doubles last summer for a week or so and didn't see any problems though only over a short period of time so hard to tell. Never done it on a regular basis but may try it in a few weeks just to help things a long. Is there a benefit to training twice a day? Also before what sessions (see sched) and how often would i be best to do it? And is it best to do it with the easy run in the morning or is there as much good doing them the other way round? Thanks again.
I've got Polar M32 (i think) and having similar problems. Keeps insisting my HR is in double figures (rather than triple) when im running. Eg. first long run yesterday after lay off. For a mile was OK-telling my HR was higher than would be normally, as I expected coz unfit. Then readings dropped to 131 and dropped further to 91 etc.Can take me a while to get a reading on it too. Had it less than a year and it worked fine for quite a while. Any ideas? Cheers.
Been laid off from running for about 3 weeks - a month now and just getting back into training. Looking to get back into shape as soon as possible and was wondering if doing some double training session days would be helpful. Not initially obviously as I need to get used to runnig again. Just thought coz its summer hols I have the time to do this. Current training sched is something like this:
Sun: Long run 13/14miles Mon:Easy 30mins (rest on easy weeks) Tues: Short reps (8x2mins off 1min, 6x3min off 90sec etc) Wed: 10miles Thurs:4/5miles easy Fri: 20-25min threshold/mixed reps (4x1min-8x2min-4x1min off 1min, Pyramid rfom 1min to 5 minoff 1min)
Anyone got any ideas on where to fit these extra training sessions in/what to do? My general idea was maybe to throw in some extra easy 4mile runs. Also would it be best to have runs such as these earlier in the day than the main training session or after the main session.
And anyone no anything about HRMs. Got Polar M32 (i think) and it is playing up. Keeps insisting my HR is in double figures when im running. Eg. first long run yesterday after lay off. For a mile was OK-telling my HR was higher than would be normally, as I expected coz unfit. Then readings dropped to 131 and dropped further to 91 etc.Can take me a while to get a reading on it too. Had it less than a year. Any ideas? Cheers.
Little bit of mixed messages for Tweetie Pie there. i would say the most consistent bit of advice is join or get in touch with a club or coach. Even your PE teacher at school might have some ideas or at least be able to put you in contact with someone who can help you.
Anyone know of any uni's with good reputations for running? Not neccessarily strong teams, just facilities/coaches, in the city if not part of the uni itself. Excluding obvious loughborough and birmingham. Cheers.
