RUNNING FASTER THAN EVER BEFORE
Two p.b.s in one week show that i am coming to form, but the most incredible thing is that today i smashed my best time for my hilly mile loop which i set back in 2003 when i was at my peak. To run faster even by a second at the age of 47 shows just how good ARTHUR LYDIARDS training system is. there are no short cuts, if you want to run at your best you must start with a massive base of aerobic training.
Rob was flying once again and pulled away from me on the last mile effort with 1/4 of a mile to go, finishing in 5.15 to my 5.26.
Interval session with rob on a hilly 1/2 and mile loop.
1/2m 2.43 1m 5,25 1/2 2.38 1m 5.26 =56 mins
Steady run off road on the harrock hill race course inc time trailing up parbold hill running 8 sec faster than a couple of weeks ago and 20 secs up on last years time. = 1.30
Steady run with Steady Eddie over the sandhills = 1.07
Still feeling tired after my epic 20mile training run with Rob.
3 x 1 mile Vic park 5,40 5.40 5.39 = 1.00
