I have been training for a 10k which i completed today (43:30) in howling winds. My brother was meant to come and compete as well, but was ill. We have now found another 10k in early january and i am wondering what sort of training I should do for the next 5 weeks?
In preperation for this one I was completing:
Tuesday 3 x 10 min temp with 2 min recovery or 10 x 1min sprint 1 min recovery
Thursday 20 min slow, 10min medium, 5 min fast, 1 min sprint
Saturday 5x 5 min tempo 2 min recovery or 8 miles medium
My feeling is that I am knackering myself with each run being around 6 miles once I include warm up and cool down.
Could I usemy time better? I do have the option of running to work one day a week (4 miles each way). I also cycle to work most days. I was also wondering about doing some strength excercises as I have never done any before?
