I'm doing my second 10K at beginning of june (i did my first last october at age 52 and ended up with achilles tendonitis so had 3 month off after that!!), since new year been getting back into it and now with 3 weeks to go I've just completed week 9 of a 12 week programme.
I did the first one in 60 mins & 19 secs, would love to get under the hour (or even a bit better this time)
Trouble is whenever I'm training (3 days per week plus a game of tennis) my legs feel so heavy and whilst I get through my session and seem to be averaging about 6 min / Km I wonder if I'm over doing it. The training plan peaks this week before dropping for the last two weeks.
My question is will I lose too much condition by having three relatively easy weeks or should I just slow down a bit?
