The runs have been good and I can churn out a 32:30.
The last 2:30 seems a long way away though. So this week I am going to try two different things to increase my endurance:
- Run and run and run and run
I can run good 5km times, but am a bit of a mess when I do. Sweat flies everywhere and I usually have to mop down the screen on the treadmill. Eww!
This week I am concentrating on runs much longer than 5km. I plan to run for about an hour at a sub-target pace, taking a one minute walk break every ten minutes.
- Fartlek runs
Fartlek (tee hee) running will see my running at an easy pace for 3 minutes, then at a crazy pace for 30 seconds and repeating until I am spent.
I am hoping that adding these two techniques to my routine that my endurance will sky rocket.
Watch this space to see how I go.
Race day in t-minus 80 days.
