New PB - 1km - (Read 1830 times)

     At least their is hope that when I start getting treated for anemea and ramp my milage up to 20 miles a week that I can run decent times. As said my anemea is currently untreated, I am waiting for a haemotologists appointment to come in the mail.

     

    I would also say that in order to get my 5k down by four minutes, or more I need to be able to run 1km in a lot quicker than five minutes, as previously I have recoreded 1km as part of a 2k effort as 5:50, at least getting into the low 5's is a start. My interval training was once, the weekend just past, where I did 40 minutes 10 minutes running pritty fast followed by 5 minute walk recovery period. I managed 9:13 for a mile that time (the first), so 8:28 is better as well.

     

     I have them down as race when I want them to be included in my PB section of the website. Tempo run is just runs where I dont really care about the pace but like to finish without any walking or it may be a 20 minute recovery run. I am aiming to try a "tempo" i.e light run for 60 minutes this week, at the slowest pace possible because I havent "ran" non stop at any pace for that time before. My boderline jog/walk speed that could be classed as running is around 8kmph. I can fast walk a bit faster than that but even 8kmph when walking,not jogging, is like light sprinting when I am running.

     

    Those are your ANSWERS?  Now I'm really disappointed....

                Yes, Scotland. From the way he/she writes I'm going to guess a location about ten miles south of Kilmarnock.

                The process is the goal.

                    If I had to guess I'd say between Prestwick and Mauchline, and indeed Tarbolton is between those two.

                          I'm in Oxfordshire.  I suspect Mr H could tell this just by reading my posts and using whatever location superpowers he has.  He might actually be able to say where in Oxfordshire (without checking my profile).

                            I was going to guess somewhere on the north coast between Durness and Wick.  You know... some combination between those two cities anyway.

                              I know where.  Heck, I even know what you ate Sunday morning (omlette and hot chocolate).
