I need some advice on training for two distances at once. For work I have to run 1.5m sub 13 mins, so my core routine has always been mainly speedwork, but last year I took up long distance running for fun, but I've hit a plateu with both. I find if I've got a fitness test looming then my distance suffers and I can't break 10k, but then when I'm concentrating on putting miles in my 1.5 slows right down. Is it possible to combine both in one training plan? I'm not too worried about running my distances fast right now, but I want to keep my 1.5 at around 10/11 mins. At the moment my routine is something like this:
Day 1: 2m uphil moderate/hard
Day 2: 5m moderate
Day 3: Sprint assisted/resisted drills
Day 4: 2m moderate
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
