That is my aim and goal!!!

One of my concerns is increasing the paced and quality sessions too quickly and increasing the risk of more achilles issues.

Best Regards.

Running Index Data

Hi TheEd,

I use a polar watch to track my runs, and this provides a running index, which is a measure of fitness and running economy. Over the last month this number has risen substantially as my training and easy runs have increased and became more consistent. My rolling average has increased from 60 (estimated 5km of 20:50) to 65 (estimated 5km of 19:10). It will be interesting to actually see how I perform against the prediction

Yesterday - Easy 4km Jog with the dogs in the morning, Strength in the evening.
Today - Very Easy 9km Jog @ 5:48/km pace, HR Ave 133 bpm.

Best Regards.

Dean.

I am managing around 30-35km of running with around 6-7km of that as quality sessions. So I am feeling a lot more comfortable, but still very cautious.

I did the 4km relay leg yesterday. Splits below:

1st - 3:53 - HR 159 bpm
2nd - 3:51 - HR 172 bpm
3rd - 4:13 - HR 181 bpm
4th - 3:01 - HR 188 bpm (0.75km).

I set off nice and comfortable and was surprised to see my pace so fast with such a low HR for the 1st and 2nd km. Then as I turned on the course, the wind hit me. I must have had a great tailwind for the first 2km, and then into it on my way back on the loop. I never felt like I actually slowed down, and the effort was higher, just couldn't fight the 40km/h headwind....

Did an easy 7.7km jog this morning, HR average 133bpm, and pace was around 5:46/km.

Rest day tomorrow and then the 5k race on Wednesday evening.

Best Regards.

Dean.
