I have previously been interested in using this method for my training.
With the birth of my son last November my running took a back seat but with things settling down more and more, I am more confident to get back into training.
so i am now committee to using this method for the next few weeks.
This week, I had my first 30mi week and I'm already seeing improvements towards my previous base. Although the pace can be sometimes slow, it's readable fast given my time out. I'll try and pop back and share progress. As I don't have any races booked, the aim is to build a strong base so that I can work on speed next year.
My ultimate goal would be to run a sub 20 5k consistently.
I assume between all this there's some easy running??? Assuming there is, I think there's too much going on. Hill reps, intervals, flat out parkrun all each week. Most guys doing sub 35 10k probably don't do that.
Is the above your entire week or have you only told us about the quality stuff??
My regular easy running is the Monday evening session with the club and Saturday evening after parkrun.
I probably agree that I need to include some lighter stuff.
I normally use parkrun for training rather than going flat out - I just fancied seeing where I am as I've not gone flat out in a race for some time. I don't intend on going flat out this Saturday.
