10 weeks to train to run a faster 5km – that’s the challenge that YOU set The Running Channel’s Andy Baddeley, who is documenting all his training as he tries to improve by over a minute. See how Andy structures his week training four times, and find out the types of training sessions that will maximise the benefits and help you to hit your running targets! This next instalment sees Andy tackle weeks 4-6 of the challenge, dealing with tough training, travel and injury scares.
Andy is the parkrun World Record Holder (13:48, since you ask). Since retirement, he fell out of love with running – but a few years later – he is now finding his feet again. For your viewing pleasure, Andy is undertaking a 10-week challenge to see just how fit he can get, and take on the goal chosen by you – to run a sub 15 minute 5km. Follow his progress here on The Running Channel.
