I'm after a bit of advice please, I've set myself a couple of goals this year firstly to do a sub 20 min 5k and secondly a sub 40min 10k. Currently I'm sat at 21:50 5k and 45:12min 10k, the thing I'm really struggling with is getting my 2nd, at the moment I don't seem to get it until about 3k into my run which is a bit late for a 5k!
Prior to the last 12 months I've played a lot of football so all my runs and intervals have been based on short intervals. I've tried encompassing longer intervals into my run, I try and do 10 x 2min intervals at my maximum pace and some hill intervals too. I seem to be fine in my long slower runs (i run at 5:45 per km) I tend to find a rythm pretty quik but the short sharp runs I really struggle.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
