Finished the 6 week 5km training, more or less keeping to it, taking a few extra rest days than recommended. Today I'm starting another of Pete Magill's progams and it's called :
"12 Weeks Program for Time-constrained Runners" ..... and I'm changing that to :
"12 Weeks Program for Age-constrained Runners"!
Makes no difference .. age/time... same challenges!!
WEEK ONE :
MONDAY: OFF ... but I did a set of Magill drills with strides this morning after school.
TUESDAY: 5km Road & Trail Reps ... 8x1 minute @ 5k pace; RI 2min jog.
THURSDAY: Distance Run ... 20-30min @ 8:30m/k (pace based on my 35min 5km time.)
FRIDAY: Hill Strides .. 10-20sec. Walk down; 4-5 reps. Progress to 8-10
SATURDAY: BOWRAL PARKRUN .... can't be missed!
SUNDAY: Long Run ....40-60 mn.
I've not done the Tuesday training before, but I really need to keep trying something new.
See how I go!
