First of all, thanks again for setting my account up, I can finally seek advice
I used to live in the UK and all I ever used running for was as an addition to my martial art training. I moved over to Sweden end of 2008 and slowly over the years got more and more into my running, mainly due to the sceneray and running through forests all time of the year is a big plus point for me.
I have had my 10k at around 42min and now I wish to puch and get this below, Ive had a look at the training programme and a little confused? You really run that often and that distance regular?
I recently went through the Nike + coach programme for running a 10k, this was over 12 weeks and I used it as a guide run the spring cross event, which is a 12k cross country here in Sweden. Now I have the bug to run in competitions, I learnt the mistake of starting from the back, i just thought everyone else looked too professional.
So my aim is to run a fast 10k, so i can justify getting near the front, thats my goal. Where I live, is quite hilly, Ive used my garmin for some time, so hopefully have some good data if required.
Ive heard of the Meffatone running technique, but I would find this a struggle with the hills etc. I also, weight train, 3 times a week (M,W,F), so thats my mornings taken care of.
Ideal running days would be Tue, Thur and weekend?
Your guidance is much appreciatted?
