Went for my first run since that one last night. Managed 5k in under 25 minutes so somewhere near normal again, felt pretty good until the last half km so I'm pleased with thatFirst run in 3 weeks after getting covid, gentle 3k to test the waters. Feels like it’ll be a while till I’ll be going full tilt again. Just glad to be back out though
Wake up at 6am instead of 7? But in all seriousness, the only thing i'd recommend for running in the heat (also applicable for all running) is to build up consistency to get a base level of stamina before pushing harder.It’s up to 28c by 7am at the moment so not ran for a couple of months - any tips for running in that sort of heat? Used to do a fair bit of running for boxing back in the day but never in that sort of heat.
If you want to run 5k you should train at a longer distance but slower. Gives you some stamina.Well started on 42 2 weeks ago. Just try to be faster every time be it 10 secs or 1 minute etc
If I am on for a slow time I increase distance by half a mile to improve in distance at least
Will try that. Might add sprints to Help with 5 a side football tooIf you want to run 5k you should train at a longer distance but slower. Gives you some stamina.
Should also run shorter distances but quicker, gives you pace.
Combine the pace and stamina then you get a fast 5K
Fair play. I'm in the pub having a hair of the dog after over celebrating yesterday!Pyramid session this morning. 1min,2min,3,4,5,4,3,2,1... all with 2mins rest. 8 miles for the session.
Currently on 70 miles for the week, with possibly another short outing this evening.
Working up to 4 consecutive race weekends in September. Then that'll be about it for fell races.... got a hard half-marathon in October (on roads, but with 2000ft of climbing), then into the cross-country season.
