Only a week after posting my review of MyAsics running plan, I received an email that proved the plan really is adaptable. This week and last week have been the Going Faster part of the plan but, despite my best efforts, I simply haven’t been going fast enough. Tempo runs and interval runs aplenty have been done, but I couldn’t quite cut the mustard. There was 1 run that I managed to do and be 10 seconds per km ahead of my set pace but I have no idea how I did it and have not been able to replicate it since.
As a consequence, the Plan has adapted to a lower pace which exactly matches what I am achieving but my projected 10k time has also come down by 3 minutes, which is a bit disappointing. It is not going to deter me though and I will keep trying to get faster.
I am amazed what a difference just 8 speed workouts has made to my body. I have lost weight and toned up. I am sure my strength training is contributing but still it has been so quick!
So, to the question. Well, actually I have 2. I began this current training to knock 10 minutes off my 10k time. I have been happy to have a focus and am really good at following a plan. It is due to conclude on December 1st and i am not sure how to test myself. The nearest race I can find around that time is an hour and a half drive away. so here is my question:-
