"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

I've got a fever...
I believe that a great impact on my improved speed lately is the Interval sessions that I do at the local track. Be interesting to post your interval sessions and paces etc. Also include your tempo workouts.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Your workouts look great. One question, though. When are you trying to peak? That is, when is your goal race? Just want to make sure you don't burn out. Intervals can't be sustained for too long in your schedule without detrimental effects. Just wonderin'
I am wanting to peak in 4 weeks time, that is when my 10k race is. I plan to do it, and then I will reassess from there.
I dont know if at this stage I should go back to base building again. What do you think?
Would I not be ok continuing with intervals even after my peak? I mean to say, my brother, amongst others at the running track do intervals every Tues, every wk of the year, and they are ok?
