Trial and error, 10.10

Today’s training was difficult. I came after a weekend spent at my parents house where I just ate and slept. So today in the morning I was a bit …hmmm. Not interested in going out. But I did. I planned to change my training from last week. Last week I did jog+strength+jog Monday and intervals on Tuesday, at the end of the 36 hrs of fasting. This week I moved the intervals on Monday, and I will leave for tomorrow the strength. My plan is during Monday’s to alternate different types of intervals. 10x1km, 3x4km, 3x6x400m and so on. And in time will be able to appreciate the progress. Or lack of it. Today for example I felt slow and Read more

Beyond the training plan

I am in full process of developing my training plan for the marathon. I enjoy doing this and reading about different types of training and what I should use and when and why. It is very interesting. If my training plan is good or bad , that is  another story. But there is one thing to build a training plan and you need something else to actually implement it. Why am I saying that ?

In Norway everything is expensive ! But I can do my training regardless of races. I have followed my training plan almost 80% till now and I am happy to say that the running drills and legs strength exercises are working. After second week of drills I notice a change in my running posture. I will keep doing it. Regarding intervals … hmmm … I am back at the chapter called pain. Oh does it hurt …I have done 2 sessions of intervals one Read more

Future plans and training program

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 Read more
