First post here. Quick introduction: I'm 32 with a background in several sports but also a history of knee problems (I've had 4 operations)
I started going running a few months ago as much as a way of exercising the dog as anything. I found I quite enjoyed it and in the past couple of weeks, have started taking part in park-run events, with times of 18:56 and then 18:34.
I've caught the bug and now I'd really like to improve this. However, due to a couple of reasons (I play a lot of competitive tennis for one and my knees for two), I'm realistically restricted to one (two at a push) training sessions per week. Can anyone suggest an effective 5k training schedule based on 1 or 2 sessions per week?
I have done a search of 5k training schedules but they all seem to say 'Monday do this, Tuesday do this, Wednesday do this etc' which unfortunately isn't an option for me!
Thanks in advance, Ian
