So, it is 7 weeks tomorrow (eek!) to my 10k race and I am now following the Bupa training schedule, which is basically the usual 3 mile runs during the week and increasing long runs at the weekend, up to 6 miles in a couple of weeks.
However, the programme goes on about Fartlek interval runs in the midweek runs. Now I've obviously done intervals on c25k and there was proper structure to the timings. I get the impression that there is no structure to the fartlek and its twisting my melon a bit.
Anyone got any tips? Is it simply easy, sprint, recover and repeat? is it best to base the hard running on time or distance?
All tips greatfully received from you lovely people!!!
