OK .. those stats are quite fine .. we will focus on getting the running to various levels

when do you have a 5km race planned for?

and are you able to do a 1500m test if possible, to determine current shape, please?

Cheers

OK for Jan date

and 1500m test for the 5km is fine

this is a determination for 5k pace

the 4km is determination towards the 10km and overall aerobic levels

Cheers

a time-trial to see how fast you can go without going flat out and hurting yourself
