nice feedback, and may santa be kind

The 1k session is normally 10 seconds per km quicker than the 2k session

so for now 4.55 to 5 minutes per k should be 'doable'

enjoy

Hi There,

Just came home from the 1k session, and this was the hardest I'v done so far! During one interval I kept thinking "why am I doing this to myself", while others felt easier.

The idea of running at this speed for 10 km seems impossible at this stage, and it's hard to believe that I every will. Nevertheless, it was fun to run intervals at under 5 m/km and just see that number 4 on my watch for once. Hopefully the training will bear fruits.

Here are my stats:

Pace/max heart rate/heart rate after rest
1. 4.56 /159/ 117
2. 4.54 /163/ 123
3. 4.52 /166/ 124
4. 4.55 /165/ 127
5. 4.52 /167/....

I am surprised to see the split times as the average speed when running was 4.55. I just put my watch on pause in the rest time, and work of the average pace of the session. It does not allow for splits.

What do you suggest for the 5K session on Saturday?

Cheers,

Jan Gustav

Jan, the 1k session is to develop 5k speed which is aimed at making your future 10k pace more comfortable

this was a big jump in the pace that you are normally used to, and your session was in fact a very good session

for the paced run on Saturday, what are your thoughts towards this?

ideally I would not like for you to 'over-cook'

ps.. be proud of yourself the session was more than decent

Hi TheEd,

Thanks for nice feedback. To post on this site makes running much more motivating for me.

I compared the 5k times on the sub 55 min and the sub 50 min program, and think I feel like I am in between. Was thinking to aim for a 26:15 min 5k paced session. This is 30 seconds slower than the time trial I did. Maybe my shape has improved, but better to be a bit careful and wait until a new test next week to get feedback on that. Does this sound ok?

Todays 30 min run:

6.21 m/km
Average hr: 133
Distance: 4.72km

Until next time!

wise of you to set a slower time for this week

hopefully you begin to feel 'lighter' from the weekend on
