I've printed off a copy of the FIRST 5km training program which has three key workouts throughout the week and cross-training or easy runs on the other days of the week. I know now that if I have a goal and a program for training, I'm not likely to welch on the deal! I began this morning with the first key workout.
Track: 1km warm-up
8 x 400m (2:19) with 400m Recovery Intervals (RI)
Times for each 400m = 2:18; 2:22; 2:18; 2:21; 2:17; 2:22; 2:18; 2:20
I used Radio Road alongside Renwick school because the track at Chev would have been under water by now. The session was pretty easy and I was expecting it to be much harder starting back with a speed workout after such a long break. I enjoyed it too. Strange how motivated I become when I have a specific program to follow and an event to work towards....hopelessly unmotivated otherwise!
