UK Getting Back Into It - 10K Training

Its been a long time since I last posted here. Life has been busy, running a business, moving and starting a family. So the commitment to running and exercise has been sporadic to say the least.

I'm in good health and my weight has been no problem. I have also been doing some running, but without the structure or consistency.

Watching the LDN Marathon yesterday, and seeing two of my friends complete it has inspired me, and I would love to get the structure back, approach things with a more long term mindset so that I can allow running to become part of my life, without the constant striving for something better (the results will come anyway)...Also, I would love to be a role model for my daughter, so she hopefully lead a healthy lifestyle as well.

I know this system, and the support works, as previously I went from 60min 10K to being well on course for sub 40min. This time out I am happy to just take each session day by day and allow whatever improvements occur to just happen. So I have no specific goal to achieve, except for always turning up and doing the best I can.

Here are previous two incarnations

I'm going to jump into the sub 60 program to start with, and take things from there.

TheEd, can you remind me again the correct info to post for each session?

Cheers

Boony

PS. TheEd are there any other stats that I can add here that would be useful? I have access to the stuff in Strava, and some other figures I haven't got the time to understand from within TrainasOne.

Day 3 - sub 60 10K Program

3 x 2KM
1 - 2KM - 10:10 - 5.05Min/KM - 167BPM
2 - 2KM - 10:15 - 5.07Min/KM - 174BPM
3 - 2KM - 10:17 - 5:08Min/KM - 179BPM


I set my Garmin for 2KM interval, and used a grass running track, the Garmin was stopping me with about 100M left on the track each time, so something was wrong somewhere. Anyway, I finished off the laps as per the track, just to make sure I was doing 2KM each time. I think next time I will just use the track distance and the lap button on the Garmin.

Having done this before the muscle memory of the correct pace to run at kicked in straight away, so these 2KM were probably as quick as I could go whilst ensuring the consistency and form was maintained throughout the 3 sets.

I had forgotten how good it feels to get the 2K session under your belt, and I was pleasantly surprised at the pace, a nice opportunity to go under 52.30 for the 10K race at the end of this cycle.

Cheers

Day 8 - sub 60 10K Program

5 x 1KM
Rep - Distance - Time - Pace - Av HR
1 - 1.08KM - 4:52 - 4.30Min/KM - 161BPM
2 - 1.09KM - 4:55 - 4.31Min/KM - 163BPM
3 - 1.08KM - 4:51 - 4.27Min/KM - 167BPM
4 - 1.09KM - 4.56 - 4.29Min/KM - 170BPM
5 - 1.08KM - 4.51 - 4.29Min/KM - 172BPM


I ran the same grass track as the 3x2K session, and did the efforts based on the track distance rather than my Garmin, so for each effort the distance is the distance recorded by my Garmin. I thought best to use the track distance, as the Garmin is showing that the track is longer than 800M, and I would rather do a little bit extra than a little bit less. Also, the walk back to start took me 2 mins each time, so I had a little extra recovery each time.

Nice session, again I went with the pace that felt like the right one, and I think I nailed it. The last 600M of the 4th and 5th reps we're tough as the HR shows. However, I kept my form and was still running in a relaxed way without straining or pushing, there wasn't any additional speed left in me though.

Cheers

great to see your consistency, as you develop bring the rest time down before speeding up, this way your development will lay a good foundation

your muscles and ligaments will be able to develop in conjunction with your heart and lungs

once the rest period comes down, then we can look at going faster

as your weight 'normalises' to 'fighting weight' your sessions will all become easier and quicker, of course

so don't look to be fast in the beginning

all good

Ok, next time out I'll stick with the 90s rest period.

Do you have a suggestion for a suitable pace/time for the 5K session due this Saturday?

I was thinking of aiming at running the 10K race on the 13th May around 52.30 - I think it may be too soon to try sub 50, and I would rather get back into racing in a nice controlled way and run it strongly.

Cheers
