Thanks, TheEd! I feel good. Sleep has been good and I have made all the sessions. However, last two days has been easy runs and today I rest, which feels really good.

Any recommendations on pacing for the 5k session tomorrow?


10k progression running 3-4 times a week - TheEd - 24-05-2017

Hi Thor, great to hear

for the paced run, start off at 5 minutes per k and then go faster the last 1km according to how you feel

do not go too hard, be controlled when increasing the pace

enjoy

May 21st: Easy 30 min run @ 5.37/km. Avg. HR: 140

May 22nd: Easy 30 min run @ 5.25/km. Avg. HR: 140

May 23rd: Rest

May 24th: 5k paced run

2,5 km @ 4.53/km. Avg. HR: 163. Max HR: 169

2,5 km @ 4.48/km. Avg. HR: 170. Max HR: 173

This run did not feel good at all, as you can probably read from the HR. I could not have done another 5 km at this pace. In fact, I struggled to finish the workout and would happily have ended it at 2,5 km. I have no idea what went wrong today. The 3x2 km and 6x1 km sessions have felt really good (and they`ve been faster) and today suddenly I felt awful. The only thing different from other days I suppose is hotter weather (around 23 degrees C today).

Guess I`m both surprised and a bit disappointed.

Any views on this, TheEd?
