Aaron - got a about 8 tracks from the R4 soundtrack on my marathon playlist - inc Livin in America, Hearts on fire, Eye of the tiger, Burning Heart, No easy Way Out - also - Training Montage is a cracker to run to! I've seen those Rocky films too many times! know 'em like the back of me hand!
Lwa - just to echo ATM's point re Heart on Fire from rocky 4. This is the song for you if you need a rush of adrenalin. when i was training for Paris and this came on the player - i just took off like a jet plane taking off on a runway! I was making "whoa" noises from the rush of adrenalin. Lets remember that scene where east and west are training for their big fight, the tall angry russian in his hi-tech gym, steroid injections with his clipboard armed white coated scientist guys, computerised flashing and beeping punch pads, while bearded Sly is chopping logs and then crawls up a siberian mountain in 3 foot deep snow bellowing "Dragoooooooooo"
Not been on here the last couple of weeks due to work and a nice Guinness filled break in Dublin.
I've also been a bit lazy with the running but planning significant improvement starting with a lunch time run shortly.
Has anybody got a good 10k training plan? I have 8ish weeks till the race and want to set a good time given that it's my only current running focus.
do 4 runs a week, including a longy at 15-20K on the sunday, 2 x 10K (one at relaxed/recovery pace, one at tempo/target time), for your 4th run do parkrun, or 5 or 6 miles of jog/sprint/jog/sprint/jog/sprint ......
