Today I don’t really have much to add except that the run felt balanced and good. I hope that the 1k intervals tomorrow will be alright too..
I haven’t done the 500 workout now in a week. It’s because I’ve been adviced not to do strength training between day 3 and day 8 in the race training since those days lays the foundation for the approvement to come. Later this week I will get back to it 🙂
Hmm.. Today it seems I can’t get access to the Garmin Connect Server. Maybe they have banned me 😀
Well, I think we can manage without the detailed data today 🙂
Day 7, 1st sub 40 10k round
easy day of 10k running – relaxed
The time to move on to the race programs have finally come. How I have longed for something tougher to dig into 😉
At first I thought there was no meaning running at work today, because of the slippery surface. But I also noticed that the ice had totally disappeared at some spots – especially where the sun reached during most of the day. So I took a chance and went out on the first day of the sub 40 10k program.
TheEd has adviced me to start out slow and do the 2k interval sessions at pace 4:10 the first 3-week round. As you might know my goal for this year is a 10k at sub 37 minutes. TheEd believes it to be possible. For those who hasn’t followed my earlier posting I started running in mid 2009, managed to do two 10k races at sub 40 and a half marathon at 1:40. So now next steps feels like a 10k sub 37 and I will really do everything to make – in fact my mind is quite set up when it comes to that 😉
The run today felt nice and much faster than usual. By now I’m used to running the easy runs at a heart rate around 130, but today I tried only to keep it below 140, which felt like quite a difference, but still it didn’t feel very hard on the legs. It was a nice run with loads of energy flowing!
In the evening I also did a session of the Bodyweight 500 workout.
