whats the best way to train on a hill?

Posted: 05/11/2013 at 00:18

thats a good session to build power. (wont help much with the 10k)

This is a good session for 10k training:

Run the 400m up at current 5k pace, jog recovery back down x 4-8 (increase reps as you improve, dont do more than 8 in one session)

make sure you have a good warm up and cool down.

what time you hoping for the 10k?

Sub 16 or sub 17 5k training plan???

Not good for me 42min 10k today, not sure what went wrong to be honest, need to be more consistant with my training i think e.g one week ill have a good 30-35 miles training the next im down very low 20s even 15s then back up 30s again, all to do with motivation, not good enough really, oh well bring on the next one.

Friday lunchtime Six Physio Q&A

Posted: 18/09/2013 at 18:09

hi, after a track speed session 6 weeks back ive been having slight discomfort on the back of my leg, directly behind the knee height, its ok to run and stuff and not that painfull I just notice its there when im going fast e.g. i noticed it in a 5k race and put me off a bit, any suggestions what it could be and how to treat it? thought it would go with time as small stuff like that usuall do, but it hasnt this time. cheers.

Did the 5k run today in 19:25, went off too fast again, first mile in 5:30, but its a good learning curve, overall happy with that.

The first mile was fairly comfortable at that pace, but then when i got to around 1.5miles the lactate levels in my legs were just too much, what do i need to do to get that pace going for longer, as the first mile was very comfartable???

Already doing 20min runs at lactate threshold, and a few mile reps with short recoverys. But one thing i can say 1 year ago if i ran a mile in 5:30 i would have to walk the rest so its working slowly

Good work Callum, Good luck with the recovery Lou.

Training for me has been very good over the past month, probebally the best training month ive had for a few years, feeling very good and raring to go racing now

Got a 5k race in 2 weeks were im hoping to beat my road 5k pb of 19:07, im hoping to get under 19, if not a PB will do (I ran a 19:30 in training few weeks ago on a hilly course so should beat this time). Then another 5k in september to help me sharpen up for my sub 40min 10k attempt mid september, been trying for this now since 2007, ok not been training that hard in the past but think with the last 5 months training im pretty confident that ill go under it (if the weather allows of course)

I will let you know how my 5k race goes in 2 weeks, keep up the good work everybody

Building endurance to keep 10k pace going for further?

Hello Lou, Yea im in the same boat as you there, got my 10k time down to 40:05, hoping to go under in my next 10k race in september, keep up the hard work too and then soon hopefully both os us will go under it. Nice one after your both posts im feeling a lot more confident now at going under the 1:30 barrier. cheers.
