Monday is also only an EASY 30 so good time to recover ?
Hi there, the reason for stipulating running according to a pace, is that the 5k paced is not the run, and often runners put in a fast 5k because they 'feeling good' and then are flat when it comes to the race the following weekend
it is performing when it counts
the run on Sunday is no problem, however as mentioned above, do note that the day of performance is the following weekend, so we should do everything to assist this goal
the major aim is to train towards achieving the best performance on the days that count.
