Coach, hope all is well.
Decided to do the 4K trial today and did it again in 16:10.
Not terribly disappointed as I didn't feel quite right during warm up. But pushed on through.
My question here is when to STOP being on this program as you say to do about 3 months or so of training.
I started training on my own on 12/15 for a X-Mas 10 which I ended up doing in 44:44, and on 1/15 I started your training method and Right now I can feel that I am knocking on consistently Running a 4minute K (Very happy about that)
My main races are a Sprint Tri on May 10th and I have an olympic Tri on June 27.
I currently began my TRI workouts with the club and I have Spinning on Tuesdays, Swimming on Wednesday and Running on Thursdays and in a few weeks long bike rides on Saturday.
Pretty much just build up stuff for now in the 3, but there are hill sessions, tempo and intervals in the works for running.
When should I take a brake from your program?
I can take March off and begin training w your program on March 31(but I won't have time to do the off period or the buildup or do I???)
That way I would hit May 10th at the end of 2nd cycle, May30th 3 cycle and could take a week brake to then hit the final cycle for June 27.
Looking forward to your wise answers, thanks much in advance
