Can I jump in by asking what you think about a 10 mile run I'm doing on April 06. My marathon is on May 06. Is your advice different or should I still run it as a flat out race? I had thought of treating it as a long run and doing 5 miles before at long run pace then the 10 miles at or just below MP then 5 more miles at long run pace. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
During the winter months, and whilst my son is having his swimming lesson, I intend to use the gym. I rarely get injured and so I'm not really looking for injury prevention exercises but would like to advice on what sessions I can do in the gym which will help me to become a better, stronger, and faster runner.
The gym doesn't have a huge amount of equipment. It has some weights, a leg curl machine, rowing machine and some other upper body equipment.
I would really appreciate some advice on what exercises I should be doing.
I'm running a 10k at the beginning of November. My PB is just over 40 mins. I want to improve on that and want to do 2 speedwork sessions a week until the race. I was going to do a tempo run/pace run and also some intervals. It's in relation to this session I would appreciate some help.
I don't know whether I should do progressive 400m reps ie. 6 x 400 then 7 x 400 etc or do some some sessions of 200m reps, some sessions of 400m reps and some sessions of 800m reps.
Let me know if further info about my running/aims is required
