Re: Is this possible or just bs? Squatting 700 lbs and running 4:15 mile?

hmm well this leads me to another point. Is it possible to get strong/ripe and still run decently fast? I guess I could point to Ashton Eaton as the prime example of strong and still somewhat fast. Not sure what his range is after the 1500 though. Or Allan Webb back in the day was known for doing go...

Re: 3 week rotation training plan

If my goals were to do mainly 10k and below. Do you think I should do the 80 or 60 min tempos?

Re: 3 week rotation training plan

@ Bolier I'm not exactly sure. I just figure that if I do a more shorter/intense interval session(relatively speaking), it would be better to complement the 2nd workout as a longer slower tempo. Likewise, if I were to do a longer repeats(like milers or 2k), it would be better to complement that with...

3 week rotation training plan

I was thinking of a training plan that I can rotate every 3 weeks that hits all the paces. I would use 2 weeks as a more strength phase, with the 3rd week moving towards lower miles but more speed oriented.  The schedule would look something like this. Or every 3rd week I could race 3k- half maratho...

Re: Off-Season Training ("Base Building") Guidelines?

[quote="Tinman"] tcl - My rule of thumb is to include one stamina workout every week, regardless of the time of year, training phase, or cycle. In my view, repeated, successful stamina training makes everything else possible. A 2-week cycle would include: 2 stamina workouts (CV to half-marathon pace...

Re: Help with my training schedule

From what i read, during base phase you should not do any running faster than 10k pace, beside of course the sprints/ strides, since these don't accumulate much acidosis in the legs bc of the short duration (usually between 8-30 sec.) With that said, I'm trying to figure out different aerobic work d...

Help with my training schedule

Hey can anyone take a look at my training program and give me some feedback? Plan last about: 26-28 weeks. Goal race: 5k- if i PR on the 5k i might extend the training a bit to include more anaerobic workout and try a 1500/mile. Training Plan: Base 12 weeks(1 aerobic progression run + 1 lactate thre...

Re: What if you "Just Run, Baby?"

I think you're training plan is good for those who just want to run and not care too much about times. But for those serious about getting faster, a schedule is a must. Having workouts twice a week has been proven to be optimum to reach peak performance come race time. Your schedule of just farklets...

Re: help me plan my season

that article is very interesting because i have tired the traditional pyramid scheme many times before and i can safety say that it does not work for me. Using this "new training" approach, I believe can yield great benefits.

thanks for the link! it was very helpful.

Re: help me plan my season

Hey so I saw this post on letsrun and am amazed at how similar ryan hall training plan is to mine. where he starts early with speed and then develop it a bit with harder interval and then finally piece it all together with specifics. *** Marathoning 101 May 25, 2010 by Terrence Mahon Running a succe...

Re: help me plan my season

[quote="Tinman"] DDT - Is your goal race a 10-miler? If so, you don't need much, if any, Vo2 max training. Rather, work at plus or minus a little of 10-mile race speed. CV is an all-around stamina developer, which emphasizes/develops type 2a (fast oxidative) fibers/motor units, and that would help y...

Re: help me plan my season

[quote="kpt4321"] You may be faster/stronger than me, but I know that 8k of CV reps plus 3k of VO2max work would be a VERY hard effort for me, too much for me to do in a single workout.  Now, I'm relatively slow (60min 10-mile), so if you're faster that might be fine, but something to think about.  ...
