I have been doing some research on my forthcoming training to aim for a sub 2 hour HM... It's going to be tough but I like a challenge. In perpetration I have to work towards these stats:
5k time: 25.55... My PB is currently 26.50
10k time: 53.50... My PB is currently 56.36
The other guide is for my pacing:
Easy runs: 9.26 to 10.27
Long runs: 9.29 to 10.50
Tempo: 8.31 to 8.50
Race pace: 9.05 to 9.1
So I have lots to do!!
My plan is to:
increase my weekly mileage to 40 miles a week
Use the pace timing guide for my runs always including an interval session
Work on my 5 and 10k times then upwards towards HM
5 minutes of strength training a day ( a workout in trail runner mag)
Spinning class and swimming
Lose 5 kilos
I feel worn out reading that but it is doable.
Proper panthering stuff this is now 😺
Oh and legs out for the first time on my trail on Sat, gorgeous run ( see pic)
How's everyone else doing? New plans?
