I've dropped 7 minutes off my 5K using this book.
on April 15, 2009
I do sprint triathlons and running has always been my weakest leg because I've never used a structured run training plan. My 5K time in a sprint tri has been around 30 min. (pretty darn slow). I incorporated Bobby's 5K running plan from Run Workouts into my sprint triathlon plan about two months ago. The structured training, its gradual progression of volume and intensity, and the variety of workouts have kept me motivated and working hard. No more "run twice around the park" for me; I'm actually doing interesting, productive workouts.
And so far I've dropped 7 minutes off my 5K time! That kind of time should result in big gains on race day.
