Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
To Ron: I was competing for my university up until March, when I injured myself running races on a bad ankle. I was very fit at the start of March, but March was patchy and April was a write-off. Since start of May I've been getting back properly, starting mostly with gym stuff, now getting back to proper outdoor running.
Guys, must say I really appreciate the support, I wouldn't have been half as motivated to get back without it.
Planned first race back: area track championship on 25/6, probably 5k track.
Peak races will be 19july(probably 5k, possibly 10k)-23july(mile). Hopefully in between get in a 1500m and a 3k.
Jonesy, another workout I'm a fan of is the race-pace time trial a week off a big race. For 3k I do 2k, for 5k I do maybe 3200m, and for 1500m, I try for 1100-1200 (1200m preferably). Then when you're in the race, you know what to expect, you know your pace, and when it comes to that tough 3rd lap you know you've been through it and only have to tack on an extra 300m afterwards. The key is to run relaxed, and not be kicking the last half-lap to make your time.
If you can run 3:28 for 1200m without a kick or a taper, 4:20 should be easy.
