Want to train for it too?

Here’s a few things i’ll be doing

  • 1km best effort, 600 meters jog. Repeat. As the weeks pass increase the number of repetitions until you’re doing 6 or 7. This helps to build up race pace and a comfortable rhythm.
  • Hill sprints – Great for building speed and power.
  • 10 mile run – A slow run to build up endurance and confidence.
  • Low impact training – Love my bike, so i’ll be using that to take a break from the running impact.
  • Resting – If you’ve got a twinge or just feel fatigued, take a day or two off. No point getting a serious injury.
