15mins for 5km??? fooking hell !!!
Speed work is not new, but i have not done as much as what i am doing at the moment.
Historically, even last June, i was building distance from 10km to Half Marathon for the 2014 GNR and then the Manchester Marathon having only reached 16km ever before the GNR. So pretty much all my work has been building distance until April 2015. After a lul due to recovering from the Marathon, we built up a little speed for the Manchester 10km but that race was poor due to weather.
I had the base stamina from the last 12 months and so the last 8 weeks we have keep the distance work for a half and introduced more speed work.
Definately going in the right direction but not sure if the GNR will see a PB due to weather crowds, but i know i am capable of a PB if the conditions are right. I KNOW i am faster and really happy with the way it is going.
Back the feet though, no i have had this issue before, it is due to having feet like a duck hehehe.
