Hi Ed, here is the 4km results.

1km - 5:03.2
2km - 4:44.5
3km - 4:50.1
4km - 5:16.0

19:54 in total then.

What should I be doing for the 1 and 2km interval sessions?

Hi Ed, here are the latest 4km results.

1km - 4:36.7
2km - 4:42.9
3km - 4:41.0
4km - 4:42.0

18:42 in total then and 23:23 or so for the 5km.

What should I be doing for the 1 and 2km interval sessions?

A 4:55-5:05/km for the 1km and a 5:00-5:10/km for the 2kms?

The previous cycle I did 6x1km at 5:00/km and 4x2km at 5:05-5:15/km

I double it and add the minute to get 47:46 so is that 5:10?

As I said above I'm already doing the intervals a bit quicker than that so that's why I thought I'd use the times posted below but I just wanted to check to see what you thought.

So I went ahead with the 4x2km intervals at a time of 5:00-5:10. It turns out I was fit for a bit more! Here are the average times/km for each 2km rep. I took a 90 second break between each one.

4:52
4:48
4:46
4:42

If you want you can view the data over here too...

Looking forward to the 6x1km at 4:50 now

Hi Ed,

I did my long run yesterday. 19.82km, 5:17/km or so. I have to say it was a very mixed bag. I guess I didn't really fuel right so I was struggling after 5km but then I was able to pick it up again before crashing a bit again at the 13 mark and then once again picking it up. I do just think that was the preparation.

It does look like my target of 1:40 for half in 6 weeks could be doable.

A few questions for you. Do you think it would be okay to step up the 2km intervals to 5 reps and the 1km to 7 reps?

Also, I timed my weeks a bit wrong. The week of the half marathon is week 1 of the training plan. Should I do that as normal or what do you think?

Also, I have a second half the weekend after the first one. What should I be doing during that week?

Thanks,

C

you can attempt the 5 x 2k however it isn't necessary

after this 3 week cycle we can discuss the plan for the run down to the half

Okay, thanks.

I'll just go ahead with this cycle as normal and then I'll give you detailed break down in a few weeks.

Hi Ed,

Just a quick update.

A friend has asked me to do a 22km run on the 19th of April. That would be the end of week one of my final cycle if I was to continue the cycles as they are. I think I'll use that as my long run for that cycle.


My half marathon is on the 10th of May. I'm also doing one the following week, on the 17th.
