Yes Dominik .. approach to doing the 4k time-trial good. Hopefully next week goes down well without any hassles, please note, we can change things round next week according to how you feel


RE: 10 km journey - Dominik2006 - 24-02-2020

Hello TheEd

Today was my first day of running after 4 days of swimming/resting. The feeling on my today run was sluggish, kinda weird feeling of heavy legs. Pace was 6:15 per km on 130 HR. I suppose that sluggish feeling evaporates before my 4 k trial on Saturday. Is there any workouts to do for this effect to disapear or should I just let it pass and train on the schedule.

Thank you

Have a good day

Hi Dominik, do week 3 of the 10k program and then go into the 4k time-trial

the body should resurface before the 4k (hopefully, though it is a marker you setting for the program, so no stress)

onwards TheEd

Hi TheED

First off all I got to apologise. I did the 5 k, it was local race on the stadium and I couldnt resisted to do a race. I am sry if I messed up. Race was tought, my lungs was burning and my brain Big Grin Legs was OK, and I didnt feel so much devastated, but my lungs, dear god. I did my best. 100% for now.

Splits and HR are:

4:30 - average 142 HR
4:20 - average 173 HR
4:16 - average 179 HR
4:05 - average 181 HR
3:55 - average 178 HR

This was my 100% at the moment .

Have a great day

RE: 10 km journey - Dominik2006 - 29-02-2020

Hi TheED

Should I do some easy runs or just resting? When should I start 10 k program? My next race is 28th March(10 km, 80 m elevation gain).

ps. Yes I am very happy, looking forward to train and do, as you said, little steps to my goals.

RE: 10 km journey - Dominik2006 - 01-03-2020

Hi TheEd

I reserved a track for thursday 4 x 2 km session. So my goal pace would be 4:20 per km or slower ? 21:06 was 5 k, 4:13 average per km.

Thank you

RE: 10 km journey - TheEd - 03-03-2020

Hi Dominik, you would have had easy runs and the Tuesday an easy run as Day 1 and then Day 3 Thursday 4 x 2k @ 4.20 per k sounds good

please provide feedback

RE: 10 km journey - TheEd - 05-03-2020

Hi Dominik, quite a fine session, starting off slower and building up the pace always looks good

you definitely have an engine that no doubt will improve with progressive training

keep the balance and recover well
