UK Sub 45 by 23rd September 2012


looking forward to using the 10K programmes on this site, and hope I can acheive as much as some of the others on here.

I started running in January this year after almost 2 years out of regular exercise.

I've ran 2 10K races so far this year, I clocked 52mins in the first race (25th March) and 50mins in the second (15th April).

My aim is to run my home town 10K under/around 45mins, this is on 23rd Sep and will be my last race of the summer before going on holiday (for a much earned rest I'm expecting!)

Between now and then I am registered for other races,

27th May - 10K (hoping to break 50mins)
17th June - 10K
15th July - 10K
29th July - 5K Assault Course
19th Aug - 10K

I'm happy to treat these races as easy training runs/race experience opportunities with the race on the 23rd being my main goal.

I'm thinking of starting the programme on the Tuesday after my 10K race on 27th May, but unsure if I should start on the sub 50min or sub 45min.

There are 16 weeks available for training (29th May - 18th Sep), so not sure if there is the time available to complete the sub 50 and move onto the sub 45 .

Any advice you can offer would be appeciated, if there is any other info I can provide that is useful please let me know. All my workouts from Jan to date are recorded



PS. Have noticed that most people provide HR info, is this something you require? At the moment I use the Runmeter app to plan and record my running, the Wahoo HR kit costs around £100 so don't want to fork out on something unless really needed.
