Does anybody have good group exercises for interval training?

As Keith says, the range of what you refer to makes it impossible to decipher what the goal is.

1k quick is speed work to most people.

Have you ever been first in an event?

I won the local santa dash Dec 12. The marshalls were useless and the guy in front of me (by some 200m) somehow missed all the signs and went the wront way cutting 1.5k out of a 5k. He would have won and was claiming victory until i made a fuss!!

He then made a fuss and given there was no actual prize and the old ladies from the hospice were looking a touch uncomfortable I suggested that as he would have won I would accept joint first place!

It has to be my turn now!!! Of the 3 core distances my pbs are becoming so old that I am soon going to have to declare them as being from a previous running life! Even my 5k pb (which i thought was soft) turns a year old this weekend! Which does suggest I should at least have a crack at it saturday given my future lack of opportunity.

Good training progress though Skinny, lets hope it keeps going injury free.

well i am nearly a stone heavier and half a foot shorter than you skinny so that weight has to sit somewhere

I got to 19.5 average on fridays cycle home. Its quite annoying as about 9 miles into my cycle there is a ridiculous mile lone steep climb and my average pace at that point is about 20mph. I then lose about 1.5mph on the climb and have to work hard to get it back in the 19's over the last 4 miles. My school holiday aim is to do entire trip in 20mph.

Spot of physio at lunchtime. I am noticing a direct correlation between doing lots of hamstring stretching and my nerve pain fading away and vice versa. 13 miler scheduled for this evening then.

Afternoon all!

Hope you enjoyed/are enjoying the various trips to the games?

Duck- sounds like things are still rolling for you then looking at last two posts.

I had a pretty solid session on saturday of 10 min LT, 6 x 4 min at 10kp, 10 min LT. On the back of 60 miles cycling, a meaty LT run and a few other runs in the few days prior I was ready for a rest day yesterday. I seem to be back at that stage I got to in February though where im recovering pretty quickly from things pretty quickly.

This weeks tempo is a straight 25 minutes which could get painful, however it has to be easier than 3 x 15.

Question for Duck- I am in the process of sorting my bi-annual six nations trip to edinburgh. Flights to there are about £200, however flights to Glasgow are about £80 and the times of them sit nicely. Do you know how connectable Glasgow airport is to city centre? Once there I can easily get a train to Edinburgh as I did that last year.

Lou- Those 3 x 10 mins you did came about about the same as mine when i last did them. If you do startford we would probably spend a lot of time running next to each other.

Tommy- Its startford on 14 september so I still have another solid 8 weeks of training. I visited Berlin about 10 years ago, didnt really make the most of it then so would like to go back.

This weeks tempo looks a little less intense. Its just a straight 25 minutes. That must surely be easier than 3 x 15. Theres a slight shift in focus this week with my longer run being drawn out by 15 mins and a dedicated interval session of 2 x (4x1k) at 10kp.

Just an easy 40 minutes tonight in much fresher conditions. Debating turning up at parkrun saturday. This is my wifes last week of mat leave and she works every other saturday. Looking at the diary with her work weekends, weddings and other races I have planned my next parkrun opportunity would probably be the last weekend of December.

Steve way should do a book. For someone with not even any schoolboy sporting background to get to where he is, is amazing. I wonder how many other over weight drinkers are out there with undiscovered elite genetics!! 

Well done also to Richard on the pb. 

Lit, how long have you been coached by SG?

Fairly solid session yesterday with 10 min threshold, 6 x 4 min at 10kp then 10 min threshold. I was going to use the track but by 10.30 it was already hot and I didn't want to wipe myself out as was on a tight turnaround as had to be at a wedding for 2, so did on treadmill.

Weather looks to be cooling off this week but remaining nice so should make running easier.

You'll probably find running is the best exercise for this.

Good night all round last night. Skinny has some work to do!

Muddy, for a guy with a wife that hasn't taken to the running, you don't do too badly racing all the time!!

So is lit coming back down for notts half?

I got hold of xc fixtures yesterday so was pencilling into calendar. I think my wife had taken some codene perhaps as she was extremely accommodating!

Dropping kids to mother in laws shortly then track session followed by wedding. 

Another new cycling ave speed pb last night on commute to 19.5 mph.

Xpost- excellent result. Not that it is of course relevant but I assume muddy finished somewhere in between you both?
