rob - i have been on the treadmil a lot this yr.  mostly to do with the weather.  the track and roads near me have been icy so have decided to play it safe and jump on a treadmill.  however i am planning to do a tempo treadmill most saturdays due to my kids clubs or staying in looking after them i wont get the chance to go for a run outside. the way i see it is a tempo is about adaption and putting the body under stress to work out the lactic so i should get the same effect doing it on a treadmill.  he says fingers crossed

Decent return to racing Scott.

tasty threshold matt.

i did a treadmill tempo, 40 mins in 5.39 pace which covered just over 7m.  Felt ok, but I was watching an old man utd DVD from the 93/94 season so was good watching a utd team score goals so the time flew by.

dachs - no idea about a flat out 200m.  i was doing reps in 26s last summer so i guess it would be faster than that.  i might have a go at one in the summer.

So, technically on paper and po10, my 200m PB is better than Dean's

 

 on Po10 there is a 400 that I raced a few mins after a 3000.  Technically one of the 200s, at least,  in that 400 would be faster than 29s.   you do have a significantly faster parkrun than me though!

rob - wrexham is flat so assuming they send you the correct way (something they havent achieved in the last 2 yrs) then i can imagine you flying round in a tasty time

rob - is that wrexham half?  if so they have had a lot of bad publicity the past 2 races.  eg marshalls sending half the field left instead of right adding on over half a mile to the race.

Scott, we are all different. But if it was me, also thinking of your injury history, I would start with an 800 session with 2.5 min rec. get the consistency and build up slowly. You need to find rhythm and a continual spell of training. After a few weeks reduce the recovery or do longer reps.  basically, what's your hurry?  Take your time.

also to answer your other question, my staple week always has a longer rep session on a Tuesday and a shorter interval session on a Thursday.  One is about speed endurance, the other about running economy at this time of yr.

Fast session rob, don't think I have ever trained that fast for that distance.  Find a half to race asap 

mine was 16*200 off a 200 jog.  Was a bit icy on the track so had to wear spikes.  The consistency was there as the all came out in 30 secs and was very comfortable.

regards garmin, i every time I run mile reps on a track the watch measures the mile about 60m short.

matt, i agree a big PB is on the cards for you, but if i was racing i would be aiming at no slower than 25.40.  of course conditions on the day may affect that but sub 26 is an absolute minimum i would have thought.  particularly with eyes on a trafford pb.

. 40 mins threshold on the treadmill and averaged 5.39 for 7.1 miles. ..

Anyone doing Alsager 5?


matt - thats exactly the session i am doing on saturday. its almost like we have similar 10k targets   

i was tempted by alsager but have decided against it, it has a decent crowd at the sharp end and is a good flat fast race but i want to just train for a month and not focus on any races.
