I've recently set-up an Asics plan for my HM in Sept. Having looked at the plan and various other comments about these plans I am also confused about the pace and distances in the early weeks.
Although I am not fast the pace is quiet slow even for me (8:55/Km) and the distances are shorter than I would normally cover (e.g. 3.2k) ...
So, do I trust the plan and really slow things down for a the first few weeks?? Perhaps this might be to get used to doing steady slower pace and not rushing off in the first few kilometres??
Do I run to the "spirit" of the plan and not worry too much if I go slightly further or faster??
Or is there some other logic to the plan that Asic isn't telling me??
I've heard some good things about these plans from others, and I'm happy to stick with it... but would welcome any comments.
