I hope everyone's enjoying the weather Looks like there's lot's of good training and racing despite the heat.
I've been steadily working on my base with 24 and 30 miles per week, all easy running. Not sure the weather's been suitable for much more to be honest. Since my surgery I've loosely been following a HADD programme and running based on HR to focus on aerobic conditioning. Previously I've run much harder and probably why I would often injure myself. I've been very surprised at how quickly I've been able to improve since I've returned.
It's now 10 weeks after my knee operation, and the good news is my physio now says I can add some speedwork back into my training. .
I've recently been running around 10 min/mile easy runs at ~68% HR (144 bpm). My last 10K was in Jan which I ran 51:xx but feel I could probably beat that now. I'm running 25 - 30 miles per week with 4 runs - LSR and 2x easy runs and would like to replace an easy run with speed session.
I'd appreciate a bit of guidance from the thread as I'm torn between intervals or threshold as a quality session to replace a mid-week easy run ...
