I have started to start up a training log for the reason that i can look back time to time to see where i was when i started taking running seriously and somewhere to write how i feel in training and races as i think my wife gets tired listening to me going on and on and on . For the last year and a half i have been just doing what i felt liked in training on the day,some days i would run for an hour whilst other days i would run for half an hour. I have never started a training plan just did what i wanted.
My 10km training consisted of just running the distance and trying to beat the last time i ran it in. I have never done and speedwork consistently so that's probably why i cant break 50 mins in a race. I am currently training for a half marathon on 26 Jun and again i am just working my way up the milage with no speed work.
This isn't ideal i know but i find training plans a bit tedious that is something that has to change.I am going to start training for DCM in Jul. I am not looking for a specific time as this will be my first marathon and i intend in taking it easy, soak up the atmosphere of the day. I am just looking to finish it. I haven't decided on a training plan but when i do i intend to stick to it religiously.
