I would look at interval training - it's a sure fire way to increase speed as it gets your body used to running at pace.selectomatic said:Hello everyone, having got the marathon out of the way I'd like to concentrate on improving my 10k time. I've got the endurance but really need to increase my speed. Has anyone got any training suggestions as to hw I might do this?
debbo said:So Trinity do you do sessions of intervals up a hill, or just run lots of hills?
I know the feeling my beautifull county is undulating as race oganisors put it ,even the flat races have hills inTrinity said:Both... because of where I live I can't really avoid hills (not that I want to of course...cept if I want/need an easy run).
I also do hill sessions, ie run up and down the same hill between 7 and 10 times. I usually only do one of those a week.
