Fartleks and Cadence Drills and Long Runs, Oh My!

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Yepper, I started Galloway's Speed Training this week.

It's going to take a looooooong time for me build up to any sort of respectable speed, that much I can tell you for sure! But, I'm nothing if not patient.

I will say, after the first day, muscles ached that don't usually ache after a run day, so it must be engaging parts of me that weren't engaging during my usual 5Ks!

So, yeah: here we go again, with another program! I do well when I have a long-term plan, so I'm looking forward to a productive summer!

    Good for you! I've yet to embark on speed training. I'm a coward.

    Remember to warm up, light stretch, work well, post-stretch and...wait for it...embrace recovery!

    Ooh that sounds intriguing. I have finally been able to consistently run closer to a 5.0mph speed than 4.0 mph speed. But I long to break a 10 minute mile pace... Is this the way?
