How often do you train each week?
I may have done 14 occasionally, but that wouldn't have been a straight 2-a-day scenario... sometimes I'd have a couple of 3-run-days*. But the "norm" would've been twice a day Monday to Friday, with once on Saturday and Sunday. VERY occasionally twice on a Saturday when work dictated.Fulmar said:Did you build up to 14 runs a week?
Many years after I first employed "2-or-more-run-days" I came across some basic guidelines for the introduction of such an approach:Fulmar said:Hmmm :huh:
I want to start feeling that huge improvment that come with two-a-days...
Should I start with 2 5Ks a week (on top of the rest)?
I'm afraid I rarely trained on the track. :embarrassed: It was just a convenience thing with me. All I used to do was run to work and back. Quite often the runs home (5 miles being the shortest route during my peak period) would all be flat-out. I'd literally time-trial every day from mon.-fri... attempting to beat the previous day's time on each run. Track training just didn't "fit in" to my schedule.Fulmar said:But now, going back to the track... What should I do?
Like many good runners, run easy on longer-run days and run very hard on reps/hill days?
