|Subject: ||RE: Bored X coach, willing to give unwanted advice|
23 year old trying to break 16 on the track in may here, I've been running like 45-55 miles a week(because that's pretty much all my schedule can allow). I've thrown in one tempo run on tuesdays for the past two weeks and one interval session in on thursdays also(10x400 w/ 1:11 average, 5x1000m w/ 3:14 average) for the past two weeks.
I'm really not sure what I'm doing other than kind of what i was doing back in high school, and I think i'm around high 16s shape for 5k. Any advice?
I was doing those types of workouts heading into indoor track season last year and was able to pop off a 16:16 for my first race. A few weeks after that race I did 4 x 1600 averaging 5:09 and felt close to being able to go sub-16 but got inured halfway through a mile race.
Ahh well my races aren't until may so I still have time to prepare. Thanks for the insight, maybe I'm in better shape than I think I am.
