As I mentioned in my previous post, I will be testing out a training supplement I found over at men’s health in December.
What I plan to do is record my experience, etc. after each day of training. I will also follow each training week with a parkrun. This will give some measure of improvement over the 3 weeks. For December, however, I am not sure if there will be a parkrun on every weekend. To eliminate the possibility of results being skewed by adrenaline on actual parkruns vs. days where I’m just completing the route (freedom runs), I will do a freedom run at 7:00 on Saturday mornings and use its time. This will be the first run of the day and not be affected by any race hype, etc. I will also run a ‘benchmark’ parkrun before starting the training.
So, there it is. Plans for the training experiment of the year. Let’s hope it works out, and everyone could be faster runners for it.
