Interval or Tempo pace?

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 16:17

Interval speed is a bit faster then 5K speed.

Tempo (threshold/lactate turn-point) speed a bit slower then 10k speed.

Hi Dan I was following your training a year ago and saw you missed 15 mins by a whisker. This year you smashed it! could you post a weeks training so I could see the difference? Thanks

Galen Rupp takes American 10k record. Commentary from Mo.

He looked a lot stronger in his upper body compared to 2 years ago. Faster then Mo has ever run and just to be racist the fastest white man of all time.

Alberto's training regime seems to be paying dividends.

Unfortunately Flob the article by SIS is not much more than an advert for their supplements. Eat low carb food and buy carb supplements from SIS.

How to run faster

It's very surprising that she can run 12x9.30min miles but cannot run a sub 2 hour half marathon. But that assumed I agree with Taxi above for someone who can run a 2 hour half 9.30 per mile seems a bit fast. I'd go about a minute slower then that. Maybe for a vo2 max run she could try yasso 800's that is 800m reps at 4 to 4.10mins. And some threshold runs at 9 min mile pace. That is a 5 mile run with 2x 9 min miles in between.

Given her last weeks training i think 2 hours will be broken easily.

non-impact exercise that doesn't cost anything?

Air cycling, lie on your back and peddle in the air. Air punching punch up into the air, not too hard, just lots. Both will tire you out. A low impact full body work out for free.

Nutritional Content of Skimmed Milk vs Semi-Skimmed

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 22:53

What sort of amount of fat are you talking about? 2 stones or 2 lbs over weight. If it's the latter counting the fat one the milk might make the difference otherwise probably not.

This article is very vague. The title seemed to indicate that low carb training and racing was effective, but the article itself said :

 competition always be performed with high carbohydrate availability (so as to maximize performance).

As noted above by henry, there are no figures of how both the control group and the test group performed. Shocking considering a Dr wrote it!

Which is my best event/distance?

Posted: 25/08/2013 at 20:06

According to http://www.mcmillanrunning.com/ your 1500 is best by far. But I wouldn't put to much on times run without proper training. I would just train for the distance I enjoy most.

Realistic pace predictions for realistically shaped people

Posted: 24/08/2013 at 16:09

Based on your times there I can see no reason you shouldn't go for 1.37 for a half marathon. I think the race prediction formula is assuming you are doing the weekly millage required for the distance, so at least 40 per week for a half marathon and 60 for a marathon. It amazes me how big guys are able to run as fast and faster then me even though I'm 10st and thought I was quite good at distance running.
