I'm thinking it could be that this particular training program is a little different than my first training program (Hal Hidgon's) I used.
Week 1 had me doing this and this weeks training include:
- 35 - 45 mins. at moderate pace
- 6 x 1k at 10 seconds per mile faster than 10k goal pace; walk 2.5 mins btw ea. set
- 5 to 7 miles easy
So far this week I completed workout 2 since when workout 2 was actually scheduled I hope to be meeting up with Rose and didn't want to subject her to my crazy speed work.
It was interesting for sure, I haven't done speedwork before and I have no clue how I ran since I don't normally track me distance in kilometers. I also paused it for the 2.5 minute walk break, so the time I have for 6k I'm quite happy with. I hear I ran faster than what my goal pace is.
I think part of my funk has to deal with the fact that my pace has significantly dropped since my Half, and that's lead me to be completely de-motivated. I'm sure it's a combination of weight gain, less running, and weather change. Guess I gotta work on the first two eh?
Anyways..head over to Rose's and give her some blog love...she had a rough Half last weekend and for someone whose been there, support is always appreciated!
