I read on one of the FAQs that we should only do 1 hard run per week. This seems difficult. This week I did week 2 of ju-ju-'s '10 is the magic number' plan. It went like this:
Monday. The long run, did 6.3k at 8:19/km. Never run that far before, so was that a hard run?
Wednesday. The short run. Decided I needed to work on speed ready for parkrun. Did 3k at 7.21/km. Never run that fast before; hard run?
Saturday. Parkrun. 5k in 36.14, knocking more than 3 minutes off my previous best 5k. Hard run? I reckon they're all hard 😂 Is 'one hard run per week' just a comfort blanket for us newbies?
