I gave the cycling to work a miss today because of the gales and am glad I did as it's now decided to thrash it down as well!
The culmination of my 5k training plan was an aquathlon on Sunday and turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. Can't complain too much as I've been running well throughout the plan and having a tough cross country race the day before (didn't know this when I entered the aquathlon) probably didn't help.
I am now following the last few weeks of the low mileage 10k plan in preparation for a 10k in December and then I will be going plan-less for a few weeks to give myself a break. Thing is, I don't want to stop the speedwork altogether so what sessions should I be doing to ensure I don't lose any 'speed' gains I've made over the last few months?
