So I just completed my first 10k 2 weeks ago in about 40 minutes, having done about 6 weeks of training. Athletics season at my school is coming up and I was aiming for either 400m, 800m, or 1500m, as I'm quite good at maintaining a near sprint, but not that great at sprinting.
I was going to follow this training plan I just came up with, is it alright? Ideas on improvements or is it ok?
Monday: Full sprint up and down the other side of a roughly 50m high hill, rest for about 2 minutes, then repeat about 5-7 times.
Tuesday: 5 mile slower than 10k pace run, speeding up to 800m pace in last half mile.
Wednesday: 5 mile run, split into 1 mile warm up then 3.5miles alternating every 2 minutes between 800m pace and an easy pace, then a half mile cool down.
Thursday: 5 mile steady, maintenance run.
Friday: Same as monday, hill sprints.
Sunday: Long, steady run, 7-14 miles.
Cheers for any advice
