Hitting the wall after the marathon made me reconsider some plans. Secret plans that is, but still plans. I will not change anything in my goals till the end of the year, so I will work to improve my 10 k time.
After the running experience I had on Sunday I also want to get more trail under my feet.
Ok, lets talk numbers than. My PB for 10 k is 53.08 set in April in a race in Oslo. Before than my PB was 58:46, set in November 2013 in Sweden ( my first ever race ). My goal for the rest of the year is to lower my time till 45 min.
In terms of races I will run just 2 more races this year. One in Norway, and one in Sweden. The one in Sweden it is the same as last year, in Stromstad and hopefully I will get my goal there. As my marathon training plan was conceived by yours truly, I will keep the tradition and I will develop my training plan. Which I have done !!!
The training plan it is simple and it is based on 2 weeks. I integrated my regular runs with SkiLøperne group in the plan as still for me to run with them it is a pain. Besides that …well …better show you !
|Week 1||Week 2|
|Thursday||Drills+Track intervals+core||Hills + balance & legs strength|
Random: longer runs >20km
So as you see one week I have drills + track intervals and core exercises. The other week running hills + balance and legs exercises. When I say drills I say …
I am not sure though, what intervals are best for building speed, so I am still searching on that. And in terms of core, balance and legs I am doing basic exercises, the type that you need nothing else but your body !
There it is my plan. You can give an opinion or two, I won’t mind.
In order to keep yet another tradition I will take a decision on some race I fancy on 25th of December 2014. I like traditions !
I feel the need to add something : this is a guideline. I will try to keep it 100% but as I am not a professional athlete and I do have to work, and I do have responsibilities at home might be that I will not be able to … just to say !
