I found this http://www.electricblues.com/Hadd.doc, seems like a lot of slow running. I'm not planning on running out to the store to buy a HR monitor, but it could explain why my times slow down on longer distance races.
(I really need to get out and run a 70-90 min run this week.)
I've been able to get some longer runs in the last two Saturdays, I can't wait to see how I'll perform in my 5 mile this Saturday.
Here is an Authur Lydiard training program that I found, it has a very serious 10K sample program near the end.

OK....what should I do my last 2 weeks...
Background...I was coming back from injury hiatus at the same time my running friend wanted to train for her first 30K race, which coincides with my next 10K. So I decided best for both of us was focus on base building the last couple months. Mostly long slow miles. We had done some speedwork in December, mostly because she was in the middle of a program and I just went along for the ride, but none since the January 10K
After sunday long run (15 for me) she starts a 2 week taper to the race. I figure I still have a good 7-10 days before I need to ease up .
Should I add in some speedwork next week? What do you think? Probably at least a tempo next saturday, but I was thinking of some kind of interval work on wednesday.
