G'day

Howdy!

I have been increasing my running program over the last few weeks as I am on holidays, however I then felt sick, so on Friday 25 Jun I did a 65min interval session, 70min ride, Sat rest, Sun swim, Mon 35min slow run and 30min ride, Tue rest and today 30min run.

Mondays run my legs felt super slow and I couldn't run at all quick, even when I tried to, then today my upper legs were itching for a power session, but as I went for a run the lower muscles got super tight really quickly and it was moderately painful trying to run. It wasn't the calf muscle that was so bad it was the muscles around the shin and outside of the lower leg.

Is this weird? How can I get rid of it so that I can continue with my training?

Also I am aiming for a sub 40min 10km eventually, however I ran a 10km in Sydney the other weekend in 46:30. Should I be on the 45 or 50min program? How quick/slow do you see times progress?

Hi dale and welcome

first off .. you may be jumping in at the deep end .. you need to provide what exercise you have been doing till now

because if you have started with a 'flurry' of activity you on the highway to injury or sickness

to start, less is definitely better

and if you considering a 10km program then consider starting with the sub 45 minute 10 km schedule

you welcome to use the forums to better plan and apply your training

you are good with your replies aren't you TheEd?

Usual training week:

Mon: Row 90min, Triathlon training (usually brick or aquathon) 60min, Touch training 60min

Tue: 60min Swim, 45min circuit, 90min swim

Wed: Tri training 60min, Touch game 50min

Thu: Swim 90min, 60min long, slow run

Fri: Swim 60min

Sat: 3 hr long slow run.


As I am at uni I have plenty of time, and while they are my compulsory sessions I quite frequently throw in more rides, runs and gym sessions.

Since On holidays, my program has changed to the following:

Sat 12 Jun: 3.2km swim race, 15km run (76min as it was after the swim at about 3pm and I was tired)

Wed 16 Jun: 2hr ride, 50min sprint (run) session

Thu 17 Jun: 1.5hr swim, 20min ride to and from pool, 35min circuit

Fri 18 Jun: 65min Interval, core session, 60min ride, push-up/pull-up circuit

Sat 19 Jun: 90 min swim

Sun 20 Jun: 10km race - 46.30

Mon 21 Jun: 65min run - hill efforts, 60min ride, push/pull circuit, core circuit

Tue 22 Jun: 60min swim

Wed 23 Jun: 70min slow run, 75min ride, push/pull, core circuit

Thu 24 Jun: 90min swim, 30min slow run

From Fri is previously stated. Friday night I felt like I had no energy - I couldn't sleep that night and I was dizzy and tired all day Saturday.

As I don't have a measured track that I've been using I have been running time intervals...

The times I have been doing are-
6x2min, 4x3min and 3x4min with 2 min in between, however i find it harder to push myself running on time rather than distance.

Hi dale from the quality and the variation of the sessions you show you know what you are doing but have made the mistake maybe of increasing things too rapidly

it may be recommended that you take a short break to avoid overtraining

here are some Warning Signs of Overtraining

I have worked with triathletes in the past providing a balance to their programs whereby I focused on their running and they did the swimming and cycling under different coaches always focusing on keeping running as a priority

in the very near future we shall be launching a triathlon section as well as trying to provide balance for tri training for those who want to make running their main focus while still training for triathlon

this should hopefully slide into place before the end July

so more constructive help could be on the way

Thanks TheEd, I think you hit the nail on the head looking at those symptoms. I don't like reducing training! Oh well.

I think I'm going to try and incorporate the sub 45min program as one of my goals is the 10km under 40min, but another goal is 2.4km under 9 min, then hopefully under 8:30.

I'll keep you posted to let you know how my times are travelling.

Thanks again

better safe than sorry, chronic fatigue will cause a far greater loss in training and a short break

before end July there will be a TRI section on the forums as well as structure on the overall site which will be developed with triathletes in mind

so pop in ask questions, provide feedback and we will see what can be provided for you

good luck
