I love reading everyone's posts, following the links you share regarding training techniques, watching the You Tube videos, reading the technical jargon, and have learnt so much, mainly:
1. Run slowly. Slow runners live longer and get fewer injuries. Pleased about that as I am very good at running slow (See my stats if you don't believe me!)
2. But wait, I must run slower still, to keep the heart rate below 130 bpm. Hmm, that's much much harder. I think I'd spend most of my time walking
3. But wait, I also need to sprint to boost my mitochondria (I don't know if I've spelt that right, auto-correct went into meltdown)
4. And I need to run further to ...um ...oh yes, to finish Ju-ju's magic plan.
So, I need to run short distances really fast, and run long distances slowly, and run any sort of distance really really slowly.
Does anyone fancy creating me a training plan, as my head is starting to hurt!
P.S. did my first 9k today and it wasn't as bad as I'd feared!
