On a tuesday, I will do a track session varying from 8x150m to 5x300m, to 3x600m, then monday and sat il do a 3mile run and thursdays i do a 6mile run!3k isn't a strange distance JBB to road runners it might be, but it's fairly common for track runners
What does your current training load look like CMJ?
The obvious answer is to train harder... lol, but hopefully once we can establish where you are at the moment, we can suggest ways of helping you improve
good question! Interesting that you run your 6miler at as faster pace than your 3miler? Is this intentional? or is there perhaps a difference in course difficulty?
Lol!Yeh, I only just notice my time is quicker in 6 miler, and that is a harder course thath the 3!I think it's because I run with other people on the 6 as it is part of a running club.
Based on your mile and 5k PBS< I reckon you are in similar shape to me.I'm doing a 3km time trial with my local club this wednesday, first ever one so a PB guaranteed. Not sure what to aim for though. 11min something I guess?
I'll aim for hopefully sub 11:30 then...Based on your mile and 5k PBS< I reckon you are in similar shape to me.
If I was running one I would aim for 11:20-11:30.
Id go out as oconsistent as possible. Is it on the track? The pace is 6:10 a mile, so roughly 97/98 a lap. The first few might be a little faster, but if you go out too fast youll pay at the end of the race. 3000m can be a really tough raace to get right.@Gary - sub 11 or go home lol
I wish I could race it more, but they haven't got that many track ones in Scotland (or in general). It is an odd distance, Imo it's the upper limit of middle distance, requires lots of speed but also very sensible pacing.Not sure about sub 11 lol, unless it's one way and we get wind like we had on the 5k race 2 weeks ago. My club is doing a series/club championship - 5k, 3k, 1500m, 800m, 400m, 200m then 100m, I'm currently 3rd after the 5k...but weather was bad so not many turned up lol
5k was on seafront, so 3k might be too..they haven't said yet. Think I can manage 6.10 pace.. I'll find out if guess. 3k is odd, that funny distance that seems short but probably won't feel like it a mile in!
