I have been very consistent outside my injury, such a pity it came at a vital time.

Still I can feel myself getting stronger so a few weeks of solid training should be of huge benefit.

Felt good today for 10*400

Yep, but I've had to switch things up a bit to do it.

Ended the last cycle really tired and race didn't go well, so took a few days off and rejoined the new cycle on day two.

Going strong since but planning to bump day 12 up to an 8k so I at least have a benchmark of where I am before the 15th when I've got a flat 10k booked in.

8k in 33:24 so something to build on.

Won't be near 40 mins this time but hoping I can do the fastest time since my son was born two years ago which will be a good milestone.

So training definitely paid off. Ran my first ever official 10k race yesterday in 40:22

Personal best by more than a minute and by far the quickest I've ran since my son was born two years ago.

Delighted despite not making the 40:00 target and definitely have it in my sights now. Thanks for all your help.

Well I obviously want rid of those 22 seconds now so I'll be booking some races.

First things first though, since the hockey season starts this weekend I can't realistically run another cycle until March/April time.

I am going rest for a few days then go onto your cool down programme for two weeks - http://www.time-to-run.com/training/10k/offtime.htm. After that I still want to fit in plenty of running around my hockey to build up a better aerobic base for next year.

I was thinking of doing a six week build-up period, then going back to a couple of weeks rest then repeating. It's likely I will have to modify a bit to cope with training and matches as well but it shouldn't be too drastic. I plan to do the majority of my running as part of my commute so time isn't an issue, I'll just need to see how I feel physically.

What do you think of that as a plan? Is there anything additional I should do over the winter to maintain speed - perhaps strides or the occasional interval session?

This looks good. A decent build-up should set you up for further progress

how far are you into your current training?

Just started my first build up period, day two today.

Have shifted the schedule along a day to keep long runs clear of hockey practice.

Great stuff, keep the runs at a slow pace, once you doing the fartlek sessions you should be feeling a few benefits
