I am looking to bring my 1.5m pace down under 9 minutes and finding it slower progress than once thought.
My current 1.5m run time is 10:30 and 5k pace is 24:00
My current training programme consists of
Monday - weight training
Tuesday - 400m x 8 - 7 min mile
Wednesday - 800m x 3 - 6 min mile
Thursday - weight training
Friday 100m sprints × 12
Saturday - rest
Sunday - long run (5k - 13.2 miles)
Am I am going to quickly? From reading around i should be training at 8 min mile but that surely would be even slower progress?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated
