…starts a new cycle of training for me.
After thorough research and info gathering around the net over my new training plan, I found it to be just as nice and wise as it should be:
- it’s the right way to go
- it’s injury free
- it’s scientifically proven
I cooked it myself – having consulted my vast experience running. The principle was validated and tested against opinions and discussions among professional coaches.
Of course, this ones specific to me – to my type of running – specifically my pace and strategy.
- I am a negative splitter.
- I am not the typical fast guy.
- I am comfortable with the run-rest-run pattern.
- I am comfortable running under the heat.
This doesn’t mean it can’t apply to you. This also doesn’t mean that you can just copy what I have here.
Basically, the training would start with a base build-up for about 3 or 4 months depending on how consistent I will be. Take note that my body works on low mileage, high intensity work-outs, as opposed to the supposedly apparent idea of high mileage, low intensity one. The 4th or 5th month morphs into a base-LT training, which would include hills, pyramids and quarters on and off the track. I actually do like the roads better than the track oval. Yes, it’s a lot safer on a track, though.
Caveat: Training works well when combined with proper training nutrition, balanced sleeping pattern, and a healthy spirituality.
What do I get after these training?
- More endurance.
- Faster time.
- Leaner body.
By God’s grace, I hope to accomplish all this.
