Where is it all going wrong? Trying to go sub 45 for 10K. Last Sept I ran 2 10ks and did 48 30 or so which I was not overly chuffed with even then. have stepped up the training a LOT this year - been doing PT sessions which combines 20 mins of speed or hill work with some weights after, spinning every tuesday, and on at least 3 other days every week i run. sometimes indoors on t'mill sometimes outdoors and, generally one of those sessions will be a set of intervals.
Followed the Twin Peaks programme in the mag. All went to plan and have been running faster and faster intervals and tempos (all way above target race pace) and managed a t'mill 5K of 21.28 on first time trial attempt. in the past t'mill was always worse than outdoors. Even cruised round East Kilbride 10K in 47.26 a few weeks ago - and was not pushing it for the whole race either. it was all aiming for today's scottish gas 10K in ed and I did 48.31. So am stuck at square 1. am not even improving a little.
help. please....I'm really really thinking I might as well just give up. I'm better at training than I am at racing so what's the point?
sorry for long post but am pretty despondent tonight.
