The week went well. I managed 5 days back to back. I am still running slowly - about 6Kms. I have decided to just add 2 mins next week (instead of 4) and concentrate on speed and good form.
I need to do more work on my compartment muscles because I felt some pain in my shins today. My knees are much better and I credit my good form (Head back, chest out) and my quad-strengthening muscles.
So next week I start a gradual push toward speed. By the time I am doing 40 min runs, I want to be able to do 6K in 25 mins.
Here is Mike Campbell (black trunks) vs. Yves Edwards.
