I'm new to this forum and I'm not sure if this is where I post this but:
TheED is INCREDIBLE. I'm not sure who TheEd is or if he/she is even real but every thread that I've read TheEd has not only been truly interested in the OP's questions/progress but is so positive and supportive. Who are you? How are you able to help internet strangers so openly and passionately? In any case, I would like to thank you for providing such an awesome resource for us weekend warriors.
I have to say I'm really excited about having a program that helps me focus my running efforts and to have found a forum with such active members. It's hard to run alone
If anyone has any advice or would be willing to provide feedback as I progress, it would be greatly appreciated.
I've been running quite regularly for the past year, averaging about 50km/week with the longest run at 17.5km every sunday. I just started your sub-40 10k program; my 10K PB is around 43.
The 5x2K was really hard, but I loved it. As brutal as it was, it finally felt like I was putting effort into the right place. Splits as follows:
My long runs are no problem, I could do 2 hrs pretty effortlessly, it's when I start ramping up the pace that things get difficult. I'm looking forward to the 6x1k session on Wednesday (not really, but I'm looking forward to the dataset
I have a half-marathon planned at the end of June and a 10K in October (maybe another 10K this summer). I'd like to do 1:35 for the half and sub-40 for the 10K. Considering my current times, are these goals possible? Realistic? Things to be careful of? Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated and thanks so much in advance.
