Base training

I have been ill with a chest infection for a couple of weeks bleurgh so not much running has happened and I unfortunately had to miss the St Neots Half Marathon.

I have recently been reading the amazing “Faster Road Racing” by Pfitzinger and it has really inspired me on my 2016 quest for speed.  One of the things it mentions is building a base before embarking on one of the (seriously intense) training plans from 5k to half marathon.  I think building a base is potentially a good way to mitigate injury risk and I don’t particularly feel like racing much until the New Year.

My coach agrees that base training is a good plan going forward.

Here is the amazing book:Book

And for when i’ve finished base training – here is a 5k training plan I have to try!  http://www.runbritain.com/training/runfaster/six-week-schedule-to-run-5k-in-under-18-minutes
