I shall have a look at a few of the training schedules on this site and see if i can combine this into my new training schedule and just see what works for me. Was contemplating just starting with say a steady 2 mile run, say twice a week for a few weeks and see how i feel. I have heard that 10% increments are the way forward when building mileage so i will use this as a training tool. Thanks for the advice on when to probably start some faster sessions, will bear this in mind.
Since then I have kitted myself out with some 'cushioned' trainers as I land flat when running so the impact has had a negative effect on me. I had evaluated my training last time and my injuries were probably due to the fact that I trained too much with not enough rest days between sessions. I have done a lot of research into adequate stretching etc and feel that I have the right gear and knowledge for when i start up again. To be honest, i didnt think about the quick stamina gains leading to injury quicker Just need a decent training plan with decent building blocks. Came to this site on the off chance that I could get some experienced knowledge. Thanks for the interest shown
I am currently recovering from a hip injury and hopefully aim to be ok to start a light run/jog this coming monday (after 2.5 weeks out this day can not come quick enough).
I am switching my aim to compete in 10k races and joining a local running club. Now, based on a first competitive 10k race, what would be considered a decent time? The fastest I have ran a 10k is 54:13 minutes last year but I have suffered a number of injuries since then so Im afraid I have lost some stamina. I hope to be competing by Feb/March time.
Any suggestions on quick stamina progression training? Should I aim for around the hour mark for a satisfactory return?
I have been the docs and was told it was a muscle insert strain and must rest for a few weeks whilst doing some strengthening exercises. So frustrating though as Im due to start training for my first half marathon, but guess i must wait
