Running is emotion. Running is courage. Running is will.
I guess that’s a good point. But here’s the thing: I didn’t just magically get “good” over the summer. After my time off for cross country, I immediately started running again. I ran all winter. I ran during track and made varsity. I ran all summer. It was a year’s worth of training that got me to where I was. I worked extremely hard to get where I was. Thanks for pointing this out anon :)
Like 7:20ish. Sometimes it’s more like 7:30, sometimes it’s more like 7:00. Depends on the day and depends who I’m running with. But all of those are comfortable paces for me.
Interval training is alternating bursts of intense, hard activity followed by intervals of a lighter activity. For example a hard 400, followed by an easy 400. Then another hard 400, then another easy 400. And so on. Fartlek is Swedish for “speed play.” Fartleks are much more unstructured and can be as hard or as easy as you make them which is the greatest thing about them hahah. Typically you run for a certain amount of time or distance at an increased pace and then follow that with an easier pace. I guess fartleks are a form of interval training. But when I do intervals they’re typically on the track, and fartleks can be done on trails or on the roads.
I think you can improve if you train smart yet hard. You have to be dedicated. Don’t let yourself slip up often because multiple slip ups is what is going to bite up in the butt in the end. You can do it. Good luck! Stay strong and confident!
So let’s say my week starts Monday because Sundays are usually off or a rest day. I just run whatever mileage I’m feeling that day to be honest, I have no strict plan to follow. The shortest Ill do is probs 4 miles, but thats fairly rare. Average might bs 6-7. Some days if im feeling it I’ll run twice a day. Then on Saturdays i do a long run which is like 10-12 miles. My summer training is very abstract.
Maybe when I’m finished I’ll post it, but is really long.
Its about running and a really bad race i had this track season.
Six flags field trip tomorrow, yay for physics!
I could just eat breakfast for every meal
Breakfast today: yummy bananapancakes with homemade peanutbutter, blueberries and strawberries.
Please tell me why you guys are so concerned with my summer training? I don’t understand.
Thank you! And I’ll be a senior.
Like I’ve said before. Over the summer I basically just do runs. No workouts, nothing special. I do regular runs and one long run. Basically I’m just getting the miles in so I can train hard when the season starts. Having a base prevents burn out, injuries, and helps you peak at the right time.
