I am not the fastest or furtherst runner, I graduated about 6 weeks ago. I've decided that I need to challenge myself so yesterday I started an improves 5k plan. First run, 20 mins (easy) with 2x5min threshold. I'm having difficulty getting my head around threshold as it not far off my limit anyway! So I stepped up a gear and 1 min later I'm beginning to panic, had to slow, pretty much
to my normal rate. I don't have an inner panther, more of an inner granny shaking her stick and sucking her teeth!
So I down loaded my run and looked at the graphs, I was expecting to see a bit more of a difference, I had a few spikes but no step that I was kind of hoping for.
4.2 miles average pace 11.16
3.1 miles a/p 10.56
Yesterday's 1.9 miles 10.34
Thoughts please :0)
