Every other day works pretty well. I found that my cardiovascular endurance is out stripping my neuromuscular endurance as the distances grow. My body needs an extra day to recover. I sure hope my body adjusts soon.

 

Even with one day off I've noticed my pace is about 10 sec per km worse than when I take two days off.

Just finished week 7. Proud of myself. I ran for 30 minutes today just because. Wasn't to my car and wanted to see what azatol was talking about. So 30 minutes and 2.8 miles. I want to say to anyone that is just starting out. Please don't give up. Completely worth it to fight through and continue the program. Everything in my life has gotten better. Have a much better outlook on everything. I'm proud of myself and the way my body is changing. My wife is proud of me... Just keep going and you will be happy also. Happy running

Glad everything is going good for you wendell...I'm going to download the 10k app today and get ready for it.....azatol. I will finish the program next Wednesday. What can I do to start working on speed. I really want to do the 5k in 30 minutes or less. I will have 3 weeks to improve time after i finish the program

Sean - good for you!! Proud of you that you worked your way out of the slump you had and got back with the program. Its so worth it :-)

 

I will do the 10k but not right away. I want to run the distance of 5k first and get comfortable with it. So probably in two or three weeks time.

Ruthie. Are you going to get the 10k app and do it or stay around the 5k distance. Azatol. Do you think just going into the 10k app will help me with my speed in a 5k event

Sean, yes and no. Speed training is what truly helps you get faster however if you are able to run 6 miles and are only racing 3, you will find that you're not pushing yourself to your distance limit so will naturally run faster as you have to keep less in the tank to go the distance.

 

Does that make sense?
