Just recently got back to doing a little running and the local parkrun series gives training a nice edge when competing to better your PB (or demoralises you when you fail!)
I started doing some training a couple of month ago and running 3 or 4 km @ 10-12 kmph on a treadmill in the gym 2 or 3 times a week. Wasn’t sure how’d i’d fair out in the 5k races but ran 26:00 first up, two weeks later did 23:30 which I was delighted with and now 2 weeks later i’ve run 24:34.
I’d read quite a bit online RE training etc. and the vast majority suggested intervals & I have been doing 1KM intervals @ 15.5kmph X 3 while training since doing my first run.
But just looking from more experienced runners how’d they go about continuing to progress and getting off this plateau!
