Although my branding of "Dan the Running Man" is catching on quickly I am still a novice runner and have not figured out exactly how I should be training to improve my performance. My first 5k was in December of '05 with a pace of nearly 11 minutes per mile followed by a week of limping around the office. During the winter months I continued to train and ran 19 races in 2006, mostly 5k's and the longest being 5 miles.
I have always been somewhat of a gadget guy and a numbers nut. Admittedly I got to be quite a site on a training run, stopwatch, pedometer, GPS, cell phone, mp3 player...when the cold weather came I stopped carrying the portable GPS because the batteries seemed to die very fast in the cold.
My family is always searching for gift ideas at Christmas time so last year my suggestion was a heart rate watch. With the monitor came the discovery that my training might be too hard, I only knew one pace...heart pounding.... So I slowed down to stay within the range for easy or moderate runs.
Now that I have a few spring races behind me and comparative data from last year I can see my lack of improvement. I have slowed down! Lost about 15-20 seconds per mile and I am huffing and puffing...
My goal for this year was to run a half marathon and I set my sites on the Fairfield Half Marathon that is quickly approaching. My question is how should the Running Realtor train? Short and fast or long and slow.... During the winter I was up to about 30 easy miles a week. Since spring came and my schedule is busier I am down to 15 miles but can bump it back up by readjusting my priorities if necessary.
Any suggestions on how I can run around the Connecticut Shoreline and improve my performace will be welcome. The faster I run the more time I will have to sell Real Estate.
