Well I obviously want rid of those 22 seconds now
so I'll be booking some races.
First things first though, since the hockey season starts this weekend I can't realistically run another cycle until March/April time.
I am going rest for a few days then go onto your cool down programme for two weeks - http://www.time-to-run.com/training/10k/offtime.htm
. After that I still want to fit in plenty of running around my hockey to build up a better aerobic base for next year.
I was thinking of doing a six week build-up period, then going back to a couple of weeks rest then repeating. It's likely I will have to modify a bit to cope with training and matches as well but it shouldn't be too drastic. I plan to do the majority of my running as part of my commute so time isn't an issue, I'll just need to see how I feel physically.
What do you think of that as a plan? Is there anything additional I should do over the winter to maintain speed - perhaps strides or the occasional interval session?
