Awritey… am almost 1/4 done! Still staying on track, surprisingly (^^,)
Workout 5 is basically Workout 2, but longer. 2 sets longer. 0.4km fast, followed by a 0.25km slow for the body to recover.
Did all but one of the Fast segments at 10kph. The 3rd one, I decided to rev it up to 10.5kph just to try out. Not good. It felt as if I pushed too hard. Didn’t even fully recover after the 0.25km walk section. Granted that I will have to eventually do the entire run at >10kph should I wish to complete within 30min, I reckon I should just take it gradual. Honestly? I’ll be glad to even come closer to the 30min mark. Any progress is progress, and should I need too, I have no qualms doing this entire Training Plan over again next year… for an even better timing =)
Left heel is hurting more than usual ever since I started increasing the frequency of my running. #!%&~* to plantar fasciitis. Am considering taking the entire December off after am done with the Swissotel Vertical Marathon late November, and simply cross train (e.g. elliptical, swimming, cycling… with yoga & Pilates) till I start a 10km plan in Jan 2014.
