I started running in Feb 2012 and am keeping it consistent with the training. So far this year I've got PBs in 5k (21:59), and 10k (45:23). An online running calculator says I can get my HM time down to around 1:40 - 1:41. Apart from my current training (below) can anyone think of any other types of training I can do to achieve/beat this?
Tuesday: Speed work (intervals of 200/400/800m repeats)
Wednesday: 8-10k easy run
Thursday: Fartlek - I mix this up and don't do the same session two weeks in a row
Saturday 13-15k easy
Sunday 40-45mins easy
I've been targeting 5-10k races (and getting good results) with this training, but I feel it may be a bit too specific. I'll be increasing my Saturday runs steadily. I did a 16 week marathon training plan last year, so distances aren't a big deal, I'll just have to work back up to them.
Current HM PB is 1:45:30 by the way...
